A Christmas Story (1983) has become a perennial classic, but there have been seven attempts in total to film Jean Shepherd's stories about Ralphie Parker, like this TV movie:

It's about the time of year to plug this little novel of mine.

Tiny Tim is dead. Scrooge remains a miserable old miser.

Bob Cratchit, a poor, underpaid clerk at the counting-house of Scrooge and Marley, has lost his youngest son. He is alone and freezing to death on a cold Christmas Eve, when he is visited by three spirits ....

As Jenny Nicholson noted, Netflix's A Christmas Prince cheaped out and featured a song that both clearly is and isn't "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree." It's changed just enough. There's also another track which seems to be their take on "Santa Baby?"

They wanted something cheaper than the real song.
