The night will wrap with the animated film Monster House (8-10 p.m. ET; encore 2-4 a.m.) featuring Kevin James (Hotel Transylvania), Nick Cannon ("America's Got Talent") and John Heder ("Napoleon Dynamite").

To get viewers even more into the spirit of the holidays, a special holiday-themed musical episode of "Pound Puppies," will premiere Saturday, November 24 (9 a.m. ET) which finds the Puppies in need of a miracle on Christmas Eve.
