TV Dinners: Ice Age & Peanuts Holiday Specials

Dish out extra helpings of family fun with two all-new animated holiday specials, “Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas” and “Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown.”

Pair family-friendly, easy Allrecipes menus with two new Christmas specials on FOX, our partner in holiday fun.


"Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas"

America’s favorite arctic herd is busy decorating for the holiday season. In his rush to help, Sid (John Leguizamo) destroys Manny’s (Ray Romano) favorite decorations. Manny is so upset he convinces Sid he is now on Santa’s naughty list. Sid, Crash, Eddie, and Peaches take off for the North Pole to plead their case to Santa.

Meanwhile, Manny, Ellie (Queen Latifah), and Diego (Denis Leary) worry over Peaches’ safety and race to find her. Back at the North Pole, Sid and his crew accidentally destroy Santa’s Workshop on Christmas Eve, and it’s up to these newfound friends to orchestrate a Christmas miracle. Don't miss an all-new "Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas," airing  Thursday, November 24 (8:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Celebrate the holiday season Ice Age-style with “mammoth” roasted turkey legs, a crunchy broccoli salad (Sid’s favorite), and peanut butter “dino” eggs for dessert.


"Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown"

Next, the Peanuts gang is back and ready to help Linus break away from his childhood security blanket. The stakes are high as Linus learns his grandmother is coming to visit, and he must decide whether or not to dispose of his most cherished possession. In an effort to help Linus kick his habit, Charlie Brown, Lucy, and even Snoopy pitch in to help.

Lucy is quick to attempt her amateur psychiatric skills, while Snoopy employs the age old drag-and-run method. Despite all attempts, Linus eventually learns that security is a valuable quality in life and everyone is entitled to their own version of a security blanket. It's an all-new "Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown," airing Thursday, Nov. 24 (8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Happiness is a warm blanket, and a comfort food dinner. Wrap yourselves in the warmth of brown sugar meatloaf, creamy mac and cheese, homestyle green beans, and a hot apple crisp for dessert.
