Eight Episodes featuring Hanukkah for children

Chanukah is less than a week away, starting on December 6th!  Whether you are Jewish and celebrating Chanukah or just want to educate your child about other cultures and religions, below are the top 8 episodes including Chanukah!  The first five are exclusively Chanukah episodes, the next three are holiday episodes with a significant portion dedicated to Chanukah.

Chanukah episodes can be difficult to track down, please leave any additional suggestions in the comments!  I use the Chanukah/Hanukkah spelling used in the episode in each description for consistency.

Exclusively Chanukah Episodes:

 1. Shalom Sesame Street – The Missing Menorah

Shalom Sesame – Chanukah Special

If you are looking for a Holiday special focused on Chanukah, this would be my number one choice!  The episode is educational, fun, and has impeccable attention to detail.  For instance, when Count is counting to 8, the keys on his organ shout the Hebrew number.  It is educational but still fun and silly in the typical Sesame Street format.  The story that threads the segments together is Anneliese playing with her friends then losing her Menorah, then searching to find it before sundown. What else can you expect?  Kids in Israeli explaining why they love Chanukah.  Symbols from the month of Kislev (November 13-December 12 in 2015).  A boy and his mother demonstrate how they make the oil for their menorah.  Words that start with the Hebrew letters Zayin and Chet.  There are lots of dreidels, traditional Chanukah foods, and lighting of menorahs.  The traditional story of Chanukah is told in cartoon narrated by a Veronica Monica (originally from an Elmo’s world episode, you can find the clip here).  The story of Judah rebuilding the temple is told through Extreme Makeover-  Temple Edition.  At the end, Grover explores Bet Guvrin, which are underground caves.

Shalom Sesame has a YouTube channel here with lots of clips related to Chanukah and Judiasm.

2. Bubbe’s Chanukah

Chanukah Special

This is an old special, from the 1980s.  But luckily muppet fashion is timeless, and this video is still one of the best Chanukah shows you can find.  The show begins with a no nonsense Bubbe explaining dreidels, the menorah, the basic meaning and other aspects about Chanukah to the clueless delivery boy who doesn’t know much about Chanukah (this special was created by animators who went on to design the Simpsons, you may see some similarities).  All of Bubbe’s friends and family arrive at her boarding house to celebrate the last night of Chanukah.  The make potato latkes, tell the story of Chanukah, and explain the meaning behind the dreidel.  There is a long running joke about Tomato latkes instead of Potatoe latkes (including a hard to listen to song) which felt a bit out of place.  There are a lot of jokes and original Chanukah songs to make the episode great for any age group!

3.  The Big, Big Present/Hanukah Plunder Blunder

Clifford’s Puppy Days – Season 3, Episode 9

Season 2, Episode 10 on Netflix

This two part episode follows Clifford and the puppies during Hanukah.  Unlike the other specials, it is not necessary all about telling the story of Hanukah, and more about Clifford and his friends celebrating Hanukah.

In the ‘Big, Big Present’ Clifford’s kitten friends are excited to open their last gift on the eighth day of Hanukah.  They explain the basic reason for lighting the menorahs, but the focus is on getting to open a present each night.  The kittens show Clifford their traditional Hanukah foods of latkes and sufganiyot.  When the puppy and kittens are playing with the dreidel, they accidentally break the menorah.  The kittens are very upset they might not be able to celebrate the last night of Hanukah, which particularly upsetting because this would mean no presents.  In the end they are able to build their own menorah and light the candles.  However, the kittens are so busy having fun playing and spending time with family they decide to open their Hanukah present later.

In the ‘Hanukah Plunder, Blunder’ the kittens explain to Clifford the reason for celebrating Hanukah.  The kitten Zo is so excited he opens up all eight of his Hanakah presents on the first night.  The kittens’ owner is not upset, but says Zo will not have any new presents to open each night.  The second night of Hanakah Zo becomes very sad that he has ruined the surprise each night.  His sister Flo comforts him that each night he will still get to enjoy lighting the menorah, seeing family, and eating latkes.  Flo selflessly offers to let him help her open the presents each night.

4.  A Rugrat’s Chanukah

Rugrats Chanukah Special

The episode may be the most popular special, partially because it is enjoyable to watch by both adults and toddlers, which is important around the holidays.  The Rugrat babies tell their simple version of the story of Chanukah, with quite a few liberties taken.  They start in their telling of the story as the MacaBabies and compare the ruined city to their messy room.  Your child should be able to learn the general story of Chanukah, learn to pronounce Chanukah as told by a Jewish Grandmother, and have a few laughs.  There is a subplot with Tommy’s grandfather and an old rival performing a play at the Synogoue as well.  Overall, I would show this to my son as a cute story about Chanukah, mainly because there are not a lot of other options.  Angelika’s behavior throughout this episode and all Rugrats episodes is unacceptable bullying, which is often included to provide comedic moments.  If you chose to watch Rugrats with your kids I would be prepared to discuss the behavior with your child and make it clear that it is unacceptable, and perhaps discuss strategies for dealing with bullies.  Schlomo, the grandfather’s rival, has one great line at the end of the show demonstrating the importance of Chanukah, “A menorah is, uh, like the nightlight of our people. In times of darkness it shines on the whole world reminding us not to be afraid to be different, but to be proud who we are.”

5.  Coming December 7th to PBS…Judith’s Happy Chanukah

Super Why

This show has yet to air, but I was excited one of my favorite series is airing a Chanukah episode and decided to include it.  It will premier on December 7th at 12 pm EST if you have cable and would like to watch it live.  I will update this post with my review after it has aired and information on any streaming sites that allow you to watch.

PBS Description:”Whyatt is excited to have been invited to Red’s Gramma’s house to celebrate Chanukah, but doesn’t know much about the holiday. To learn more, the Super Readers jump into the book Judith’s Happy Chanukah where they meet Judith, who loves Chanukah so much that she can’t wait to share it with her new friends. Educational Objectives: To learn about holiday traditions. Kids will play with the alphabet and identify the letters C, O, I, N, and S. They’ll learn the word LATKES, rhyme -OIL words, and use the power to read to change the story and make both Red’s and Judith’s Chanukah celebrations special.”

Looking for more exclusively Chanukah videos?  Chabob.org offers many short cartoon video clips about Chanukah including a three part Muppet miniseries, Itche Kadoozy Chanukah.

Holiday Episodes including Chanukah:

6.  Magic School Bus Holiday Special

Magic School Bus – Season 3, Episode 10

This holiday special is not your typical one, the main theme is actually recycling!  The episode shows the kids what their town would be like if they didn’t recycle and what an integral part of our life recycling is.  This very musical episode features Dolly Parton as Ms. Frizzle’s sister.  Christmas and the Nutcracker is mentioned by a few students, but Chanukah is actually the main holiday discussed.  Arnold has to spend the first night of Chanukah on the train to see his mother instead of seeing the Nutcracker with the rest of the class.  The class decides to surprise him on the train to celebrate with him, and Wanda gives him a gift.  The group sings several recycling songs to the tune of ‘Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas.’

7.  Elmo’s World Holiday Special

Holiday TV Special

This hour long holiday special is perfect for teaching your child about many holiday’s around the world during the winter time.  Elmo is looking for the perfect gift for his goldfish Dorothy.  While looking for the perfect gift he learns about Christmas, Chanukah and Kwanzaa.  The episode includes information about both the religious backstories and the secular aspects of each holiday such as Santa, food, dances and games.  Each section is well done with both information and entertainment.  My favorite is Elmo doing the Kwanza dance, which you can watch on YouTube as well.   Children talking about the holiday they celebrate also mention Ramadan and Three Kings day, but there are not many details discussed.  This is a great choice for a young toddler and one of the most educational choices.

Available on: Amazon, iTunes

8. Arthur’s Perfect Christmas

Holiday Special

This hour long holiday special includes Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza.  The main plot revolves around Arthur and his quest for the perfect Christmas.  Francine is a Jewish character on Arthur and she misses her best friend Muffy’s Christmas Party because it is the last night of Hanukkah which she celebrates with her family.  Muffy is upset with Francine until she goes to Francine’s house and Francine explains the importance of Hanukkah to her.  Traditional Jewish dishes are brought to Francines house, the family gathers around the menorah and sings, and Francine spends time with her family.  The clip of this part of the episode is available on PBS.  Francine’s father then says that since they do not celebrate Christmas, the family goes to the movies every Christmas, which might resonate with many Jewish families.  The episode is primarily about Christmas, but this Hanukkah plot is woven throughout the story, along with Kwanza holiday information.  The episode does not discuss the religious aspects of any holiday.

If your child does celebrate Christmas this episode does have a few thinly veiled references about the existence of Santa Claus that I think some elementary school students would be able to see through.  The mother is shown at the mall and unable to find a gift she wants.  Then it cuts to the mother talking to D.W. an explaining that lots of children want the same gift so not all kids can get exactly what they want from Santa Claus.   Buster’s mother also keeps bringing out all the presents like its Christmas morning every day for a week, this is also confusing because if the gifts are from Santa, why is Buster’s mother bringing them out.  DW, as always, behaves poorly, but this can be discussed as inappropriate behavior with your child (tantrums, greediness, impatience, rudeness).

1. Thank you Grandpere Tiger/Neighborhood Thank you Day

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood – Season 2, Episode 4

You should watch this if… You are looking to teach your child about the importance of saying thank you to family and friends.

This entire episode is dedicated to saying thank you to friends and family, the very heart of Thanksgiving.  The song used by Daniel throughout the episode is, “Thank you, for everything you do.”  If your child (or you) gets Daniel Tiger songs stuck in your head all day, this is a great one to be saying on Thanksgiving.  In the first half of the episode Daniel is celebrating “Thank You Day” with his Grandpere Tiger.  Daniel gets to spend time with his grandfather imagining boat rides and looking up at the clouds finding shapes.  Daniel goes to the Thank You Day celebration in the Enchanted Forest with the rest of the kingdom and sees the Thank You tree full of thank you notes.  In the second half of the episode Daniel looks at the Thank You Tree and gets to read a Thank You note his Grandpere wrote him, thanking him for hugs.  His friends Katerina, Prince Tuesday, and Miss Elaina share the notes they have written to thank their family.  A gust of wind blow all the letters off the tree, but they are quickly recovered by the mailman.  Daniel decides he wants to write his thank you note to the mailman for saving Thank You Day.  This episode is great for starting a conversation with your child about seeing relatives, saying thank you to family members, and saying thank you to other people who help you throughout your lives.

2. King Midas

Super Why – Season 4, Episode 10

You should watch this if… You want to teach your child about being appreciative for what they have or you would like to watch a show that will practice their literary skills.

In this episode, Pig has a toy car he loves to play with but proclaims he needs even more cars to have fun!  Whyatt gathers the book to determine if this is true.  The book club explorers the story of King Midas.  An adaptation of the classic story of King Midas’ Touch is told where Midas’ golden touch causes him to get stuck in a fountain of gold and turn his friends to gold.  The super readers help King Midas and he learns its better to have just one piece of gold that he cherishes than to have everything made of gold.  The episode is not specifically about Thanksgiving, but centered on the idea of being appreciative of what you have.  I love that it teaches children about a classic literary story in a fun way as well as instills a valuable lesson about greed.  Throughout the story Whyatt and the super readers play games and identify letters which is great for a young readers.

12. Johnny’s Sister Tina/Spritesgiving!

Johnny and the Sprites – Season 1, Episode 3

You should watch this if… You enjoy high quality musical performances or would like to emphasize sibling friendships at the holidays

Johnny and the Sprites is a lesser known kids show with fantastic musical numbers. A bit more difficult to find a place to watch than most other episodes I posted, but for many it is worth the inconvenience! Johnny’s sister Tina (Broadway award winner Sutton Foster) is visiting for Spitesgiving and Johnny is very excited to see her. He sings a song to the Sprites about all the activities he has enjoyed with his sister and all the annoying things siblings can go through together. A reprise is song with his sister later in the episode, a great song that captures siblings love. In the second half of the episode Johnny and the Sprites celebrate Spritesgiving, a holiday where they eat, laugh, and say thanks for all the things that make them blessed.  After singing a song about Spritesgiving, the Sprites discover the forgetful fungus has gotten into their garden, which makes fruits and vegetables forget what they are supposed to look and taste like. The sprite, Sage, they normally ask for advice is off for the holiday so Johnny encourages Root who is very knowledgeable about gardening to solve the problem himself.

Johnny and the Sprites are difficult to find online, but you can download the episode on iTunes.  I can usually find the episodes on YouTube as well, but not in a high enough quality for a large TV.

13. Count Their Blessings

The Berenstain Bears (2003) – Season 2, Episode 24

You should watch this if… You would like to remind your family that the heart of Thanksgiving is being thankful for our friends, family, and all the blessings you already have.

Brother and Sister Bear visit their friends and cousins houses and begin to complain about all of the toys their friends have but they do not.  After a lot of whining Mamma bear announces she has had enough and the cubs need to be thankful for what they do have: a home that is safe and warm; having their family; and having plenty of food and drinks.  Sister decides to count her blessings and play with the toys she already has and brother bear goes off to play with his video game.  The parents discuss getting the kids some new toys for Christmas and talk about how blessed they are.  This episode does not have any other signs of Thanksgiving, but fits perfectly with the spirit of Thanksgiving.  This episode is hard to track down!  I link below to the DVD version you can order on Amazon, and a higher quality version I found on YouTube.

Available on: Amazon (DVD), YouTube

 

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I realize posting this blog in mid-November is a bit late to the game, but for anyone wanting to embrace the last few weeks of Autumn, here are my favorite TV episodes!  I use affiliate links in this post, please see bottom of post for full disclosure.

Five Favorite Fall TV Episodes

1. Pups Fall Festival

Paw Patrol – Season 1, Episode 1, Part 2

This episode is my favorite episode that focuses on Fall with a positive message for children.  In this episode, two members of Paw Patrol, Chase and Marshall, are helping to harvest the fall crops of pumpkins and apples.  When they determine a snow storm is coming and could ruin the apples and pumpkins needed for the Fall Festival, they call in all the Paw Patrol members to help.  The crops are harvested just in time before the snow storm ruins them and the Fall Festival is saved.  The animals have to use teamwork and their imagination to get the work done in time.  They also make a game of harvesting pumpkins, a valuable lesson for little ones who dislike chores and need a strategy to complete them.  This episode is great for all ages, with humor a two year old and a five year old appreciate (a pumpkin falling on a dog’s head is a universal joke, right?)

Available on: Amazon, iTunes

2. Fall and Winter

Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That – Season 1, Episode 40, Pt. 2

The kids are trying to decide what their favorite season is.  In pt. 2 of this episode, they are able to explore Fall and Winter in the garden of season.  I really like the autumn part of the episode, they talk about everything in nature that makes fall great.  They discover leaves changing colors and falling, crunchy leaves, plenty of animals, geese migration, ripe corn, and apples.  Just as in the book, the Cat in the Hat is cavalier and carefree, but not quite as reckless as the original book.  The series maintains a cautious fish to keep the cat in line.  Very informative episode for those looking to talk about the important things that happen in the fall.

Available on: Amazon Prime, Netflix, iTunes

3.  The Amazing Maze Race

 Curious George – Season 3, Episode 5, Pt. 1

In this episode the country characters of Curious George are all competing to win the Annual Amazing Maze Race at Renkins Farm.  Each of the characters has a different strategy.  Curious George and his friend the man with the yellow hat plan to use the map to try and find their way out.  While their way is the slowest method at first, he eventually pulls ahead.  When the cow eats the map at the end of his race, George follows the cow who leads them out of the maze, knowing the cow always knows how to make it back to the barn at milking time.  The characters who participate alone in the maze get lonely and wish they were competing with a friend.  A few small positive messages for children, but overall just a fun episode about a competition in the fall.

Available on: Amazon Prime, Netflix, iTunes

4.  The Last Leaf

Wow, Wow! Wubbzy – Season 1, Episode 12, Part 2

Wubbzy and his friends enjoy the end of fall together and playing in the leaves while waiting for the last leaf to fall.  Wubbzy and his friend Widget leave to play in the leaves and when they come back their friend is napping under the tree, but the leaf has fallen off the tree.  They each try to find the leaf and find two very similar leaves.  At the end, their friend wakes up and has already caught the leaf.  This is a silly episode about Autumn leaves and fall, without much of a message for kids.  The Wubbzy characters are silly as always and it’s a cute short episode for kids to transition from fall to winter.

Available on: Amazon, iTunes

5.  Halloween

Yo Gabba Gabba – Season 1, Episode 10

This episode’s primary theme is Halloween, but has lots of fall aspects that apply to your child’s life all season long.  The episode starts off with the song “It is Fall,” a song about leaves falling to the ground (check it out here on the Nick Jr. Website) .  The episode has other songs focused on Halloween – “Halloween, “Trick or Treat” and “Too Much Candy.”  Too much candy is great for teaching children about moderation. Even though my sons candy is long gone, my husband would benefit from me playing this song, since he continues to eat leftover candy each day by the handful.  The cool tricks in this episode is Taekwondo.
