Your kids have been marketed to by the studios all year, and this year there's been an exceptionally crappy glut of kiddie films flooding the theaters. It's easy to overlook the classics amid the cacphony of shiny DVD cases pimping the latest crap that just oozed out of the multiplex (I'm talking to you, Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties).

Sure, there are a few gems here and there, but this Christmas/Hanukah/Kwanzaa/winter holiday of your choice, why not reach back a little into the past for some truly great children's films that your kids may not even know enough about to put on their wish list? Here are my picks for DVDs I actually wouldn't mind Santa slipping under our Christmas tree.
