"The Thanksgiving Day Parade on CBS" Kicks Off the Network's Holiday Season of Special Events

"I Love Lucy Christmas Special" Will Feature Two Classic Episodes, Including the Newly Colorized "Job Switching," a.k.a. "Chocolate Factory"

CBS's holiday programming this year will be highlighted by the 50th anniversary celebration of the perennial favorite RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER. The festive season, which kicks off with THE THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE ON CBS, will also include festive specials and beloved animated classics.

In addition to RUDOLPH and FROSTY's annual visits are encore broadcasts of the animated holiday specials THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, FROSTY RETURNS, THE STORY OF SANTA CLAUS and YES, VIRGINIA.



Following is the schedule for CBS's Holiday (FAMILY) Programming:

Thursday, Nov. 27:

"Entertainment Tonight's" Kevin Frazier and "The Insider's" Thea Andrews will anchor what is now a CBS Thanksgiving tradition in its 54th year, which will feature portions of the 87th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade live from New York City. The parade will include musical performances by the Broadway casts of "Matilda" and "Pippin."

Friday, Nov. 28:

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN (9:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT)
Frosty, that "jolly, happy soul" whose old silk hat full of magic has turned him into a musical Christmas legend, once again demonstrates his unique showmanship. Narrated by Jimmy Durante, the special also includes the voices of Jackie Vernon (as Frosty) and Billy De Wolfe (as Professor Hinkle). (Rebroadcast)

YES, VIRGINIA (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT)
This animated special is based on the 1897 true story of Virginia O'Hanlon, an 8-year-old girl who inspired the most famous newspaper editorial of all time by asking "Is there a Santa Claus?" Neil Patrick Harris, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Alfred Molina voice key characters. Beatrice Miller voices the role of Virginia. (Rebroadcast)

Saturday, Nov. 29:

THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT)

I LOVE LUCY CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) - Features two back-to-back classic episodes of the 1950s series, including the seldom-seen "Christmas Episode," and an all-new colorized version of "Job Switching" (a.k.a. "Chocolate Factory"). Both were colorized with a vintage look, a nod to the 1950s period in which the shows were filmed.

Narrated by Burl Ives, who is also heard as the voice of Sam the Snowman, this favorite is a music story based on the popular song of the same name by Johnny Marks.

The magic still in his old silk hat, the holiday season's perennially popular original dancing snowman continues his adventure and skates on the edge of danger. Jonathan Winters is the narrator with John Goodman as the voice of Frosty. (Rebroadcast)
