I know nothing about Transformers. Yet they did a holiday special. A fairly large one.
Granted this more up Jeff’s alley, but he’s already doing all the heavy lifting taking care of the nuts and bolts of this site and cleaning up my mistakes so I’ll tackle it.
There are three stories: Choose Me, Silent Light and The Thirteenth Day.
Beyond that I have no idea what’s going on.

I mean in the first one Starscream or one of the jets tries to force everyone to worship him on one day out of the year. His plan backfires and they all do things to satisfy each other. In the second story the Transformers are heading to hibernation when they find a “baby” and must decide what to do with it.
Finally, they tackle the Night Before Christmas or The Twelve Days of Christmas or something.
By the time the Transformers hit store shelves I had bid goodbye to toys. Or, thought I had. My last hurrah were Kenner’s Star Wars figures, vehicles and playsets. Those ended by the Christmas of 1980 and the first wave from The Empire Strikes Back.
My all-time favorite line of figures are still the eight-inch Mego World’s Greatest Super Heroes. I had most of ‘em with the exception of the Green Goblin, Thor, Teen Titans and Conan. My lone vehicle was the Mobile Bat Lab. I had so much fun with those. I still miss ‘em.
I dabbled with the second Power of the Force line when Kenner started the Star Wars toy line again. But it wasn’t until my son was born and grew into the Marvel Legends I was able to be a kid again. If asked I don’t know if he’d say those were his favorite toys or not, but I’d like to think so. They rank high on my list.
Okay, this had very little to do with the Transformers Holiday Special, but I’d only read it if you’re a fan. Sorry, Jeff.
