A Scooby-Doo! Christmas, also known as "Ho-Ho-Horrors!" on its Cartoon Network airings, is an animated Christmas special that originally aired on The WB on December 13, 2002, and the second Christmas special for the Scooby-Doo cartoon franchise. Three kids are playing in the snow when they find a giant snowman. One kid dares a kid named Tommy to pull its carrot nose off. Just as Tommy is pulling the carrot out, the snowman suddenly comes to life and, angered about Tommy trying to pull his nose off, scares the kids. Meanwhile, Scooby and the gang are heading to a condo that Daphne's uncle is allowing the gang to stay at. Unfortunately, they find the bridge to the other side is blocked, forcing them to go to a town and ask if there is a detour. By the time they get there, they find the three kids running away and Daphne asks what was that all about. Shaggy points out to the snowman, but Velma finds it harmless. After Fred, Daphne, and Velma leave, the snowman makes an evil look at Scooby and Shaggy, scaring them. Jed sees the gang and is not happy about it. When Daphne mentions Christmas, he tells her not to say it because Winter Hollow doesn't celebrate it due to the Headless Snowman terrorizing the town. Just then, Sheriff Perkins arrive and tells the gang to not listen to Jed. Velma asks her for directions to Mill Corners, but the sheriff tells her long directions of how to get there, leading the gang to stay in Winter Hollow for the night. (more)
