Imaginative, hard-working Molly Logan (Chabert) grew up on her family's generations-old Christmas tree farm in rural Vermont and would often write stories about individual trees as they shipped out, her favorite being a "Charlie Brown" tree struggling to grow. One day, after hearing the roar of buzz saws used to clear the woods of sickly saplings, nine-year-old Molly ran to save her favorite – even after her father Gordon (Eric Keenleyside) and his crew had made a gash in its trunk. She knew that someday this little tree would have a tale to tell. Now 29, Molly is pursuing her writing career in Manhattan. Unfortunately as Pendant Publishing CEO Walter Dunlap's (Jim Thorburn) assistant, Molly has no life and little chance to write. She's devastated to learn from her architect brother Ryan (Matthew Kevin Anderson) that the bank is foreclosing on her parents' heritage tree farm. This will be her family's last Christmas there. However, a frustrated Molly can't make it home thanks to obligations to her boss and his young daughters. Much to her shock, Molly discovers that the Christmas tree she ordered for the Dunlap home is that same one she saved years ago. Certain that it is the same tree from her youth – and a sign – Molly drags the pine back to her Vermont home and embarks upon a plan to save the family farm – with some surprising, inventive help from her brother and former boyfriend/banker Lucas Bishop (Corey Sevier).

As the two develop a close friendship during the holiday rush, Grumpy reluctantly thwarts the kidnapping of an exotic dog she dislikes, and on Christmas Eve rescues Chyrstal after the mall closes. Through her adventures, will Grumpy learn the true meaning of Christmas? Or will it be, in her words, the "Worst. Christmas. Ever?"

Whether breaking the fourth wall or in the middle of the hilarious holiday tale, Plaza is perfect as the voice of Grumpy Cat.

Peter Bergman Debuted as Jack Abbott on 'The Young and the Restless' 25 Years Ago Today

Peter Bergman was recently celebrated on the set of Y&R for his 25 years as Jack Abbott.
Three-time Daytime Emmy winner Peter Bergman made his first appearance as Jack Abbott on CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless on November 27, 1989.

Bergman's first day on the Y&R set was "daunting and kind of lonely, frankly," he said in a recent TV Guide Magazine interview. "I got along with everybody but — coming from All My Children where everyone was a tight family, talking, connecting, running lines with each other — it took me a while to adjust to things at Y&R. I felt I was a one-man army against the establishment. Everybody was off in their fabulous Hollywood dressing rooms — well, fabulous by New York standards — and I felt kind of isolated, alone in it all."

"Every prop guy and lighting technician knew more about my character than I did and let me know it," Bergman added, with a laugh. Jess Walton [Jill] was "simply wonderful from the moment I met her and such a character! Jerry Douglas [John] was a larger-than-life guy whose hairpiece was flipping all over the place. And he was very comfortable without his shirt on. That first day he pulled me into his dressing room to tell me all about the importance of the Jack-John relationship and I'm, like, 'I don't even know your name yet and you don't have any clothes on.' It was absolutely insane."

Watch Bergman's 1989 debut below as well as a recent onset celebration which included kind words from fellow cast members Eric Braeden (Victor Newman), Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) and Jerry Douglas (ex-John Abbott), as well as executive producer Jill Farren Phelps.

The Complete Story of 'The Doctors' (1963-1973)

Daytime TV covered the world of soap operas for decades before finally folding in the 1990s. In the mid-70s, the magazine did an excellent series titled "The Complete Story of..." recounting the history of a soap opera from its inception. Below is the historical feature on the first 10 years of NBC's The Doctors (1963-1973), which is currently being aired on Retro TV.

Some of the interesting tidbits include:

* The Doctors did not start as a serial; it began as a "half-hour anthology series of medical dramas, set in the large metropolitan Hope Memorial Hospital, and with the four principals alternating daily in the lead role, according to NBC's original announcement. The roles were Dr. William Scott (played by Jock Gaynor), Dr. Jerry Chandler (portrayed by Richard Roat), Dr. Elizabeth Hayes (played by Margot Moser) and Rev. Samuel Shafer, a hospital chaplain (played by Fred J. Scollay).

* Later in the first season, Herb Kenwith and Paul Lammers became the directors. But after nine months, The Doctors shifted to a continuing story line, and by 1965, James Pritchett was portraying Dr. Matt Powers, chief of staff at Hope Hospital, and Elizabeth Hubbard was playing Dr. Althea Davis, chief of the Outpatient Clinic.

* James Pritchett did a single performance during The Doctors' one-story-a-week phase, on June 20, 1963. "I played a corporation president running away and having a broken back that brought me to the hospital." He returned to The Doctors on July 9, 1963 as Dr. Matt Powers when the serial was still was still a one-story-a-week show.
