It's beginning to look too much like Christmas. . . .
* Fans of the American Girl dolls and book series get an early gift with "Felicity: An American Girl Adventure," airing Tuesday at 8 p.m. on the WB network. Young girls will enjoy this two-hour movie about a feisty, 10-year-old Colonial girl; most boys will be bored, even with hints about the Revolutionary War and a fight over a horse. Oh, and although the Williamsburg, Virginia, scenes look familiar, the movie was filmed in Toronto, Canada. (It repeats Sunday at 8 p.m.)
* The much-loved 1964 cartoon "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. on CBS. Friday at 8 p.m. you have a choice between two singer-narrated specials: ABC's 1970 clay animation "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," with Fred Astaire, or NBC's new, computer-animated "The Happy Elf" (right), with Harry Connick Jr. Newer isn't always better.
* The charming summer-movie hit "March of the
Penguins" waddles to DVD shelves Tuesday. Also available: the comic adventure "Sky High" and "The Muppet Movie: Kermit's 50th Anniversary Edition."
* Gamers' delight: Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time on DS.
