Yogi's First Christmas was on laserdisc. Jack Frost seems to have gone public domain; there's several DVDs of that available, some with it by itself and others with other holiday-themed stuff on them.

Jack O' Lantern - Rankin Bass most def. needs to come out on DVD. Some of those titles like Alan Smithee that are packaged together and are in the bargain bin for $1 dollar.

To my knowledge, there were only two and both are out on DVD (even though the 2nd one is really, REALLY bad).

To go back further, I'd like to get Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol (1962) on DVD. I loved that as a kid.

There's the Bloom County special - A Wish For Wings That Work. Doubt it will ever come out on DVD though, that's why I still have the laserdisc.

A Flintstone Christmas Carol I'd love to see on DVD some day. I have a bootleg of it.

A Christmas Toy, this was such a great movie that I haven't seen in years. And surprisingly I never see it on TV.

It's not on dvd, but Christmas Comes to Pac-Land has been posted on AOL's In2TV, along with some other holiday specials (some on the list posted). All available holiday specials are here:

"The Christmas Toy" was available in R2. It and the uncut "Muppet Family Christmas" (7 musical numbers were cut from the domestic release) were on the same disc (I believe it's now out of print). Somehow, I think "A Christmas Toy" will never make it to video again. It is now owned by Disney and it's plot is too similar to "A Toy Story"

Does anyone remember the name of the Christmas special that was about a bear that I think had the name Ted. E. Bear, I think it was shown in the 80's.

Is there an uncut version of Santa and the three bears available? I was shocked to see that a recent VHS copy a relative of mine has DOESN'T have any of the opening and concluding live-action footage!
