Christmas TV Childrens' Classics

There are one or two children's classics on TV this Christmas to slump in front of (or in front of which to slump?).  The biggest blockbusting headliner is "The Borrowers" with Victoria Wood and Stephen Fry on BBC1, Boxing Day at 7.30 pm.  I thought I'd select a few to add to the list of things to worry about.
