Thanks.

I prefer Santa Claus is Comin' to Town because I love saying "Burgermeister Meisterburger". Best stop-motion name ever.

Thank you, OP!

No I don't, but being 60 doesn't make me old. Age is in the state of mind.

[quote]You old people don't have DVD players? See, this is why nothing is special anymore. As a kid, one of the best parts of Christmas for me was hearing that "CBS Special Presentation" music, knowing this was going to be the only chance to see Rudolph or Charlie Brown or Frosty this year and if I missed it, I had to wait a whole year for another chance. Nowadays, parents just pop the DVD in so the kids can watch it in the back seat of the minivan while on the way to Disney World for summer vacation. Or they just stream it to their iPads and watch it over and over and over.

Sorry about the formatting. I put a carriage return in after the quote. Honest I did.

I've already set my DVR. Rudolph is my all-time favorite childhood memory. I remember being amazed as a child that a place like the North Pole with Santa, elves and reindeer actually existed. How I wish I could go back to those wondrous times.

Oh c'mon who hasn't shed a tear when Santa comes and rescues the Misfit Toys?

I love the movie "the year without a Santa Claus" because of the great music by heatmeiser. "I'm too much"!

This isn't Facebook, OleP.

There is no "now" or "tonight" on a board that regurgitates threads.

Torrent is illegal. Besides, some of us prefer digital HD TV.

Last minute reminder (on CBS)

Am I too sentimental that I can't handle the other reindeer being mean? I hate anything with bullies, and won't watch movies featuring nazis or mobsters. Island of Misfit Toys sounds sad, too. The happy endings don't help much I'm afraid.

What was wrong with the misfit doll? Or the elephant?

Santa is a total douche in this!

Would not miss it, OP. :) I used to hide behind the sofa when the Bumble came on.

Cherished childhood memory, though I agree that Santa was a douche in this.

Is that the one with the little gay elf who wants to be a dentist? Hermie or something?

by Anonymousreply 2312/04/2012

I think Hermey might just be a queen. He seems très oh fey and swish!

Please don't tell me he's planning to run for president again. And if he mentions 9/11 one more time...

by Anonymousreply 2712/04/2012

Are you talking about the blond elf with the very femme hairstyle, R24? I was thinking the same thing, LOL.

Lots of gay sub-text in this. Rudolf, whose not like other reindeer, and the elf who doesn't want to make toys like a normal elf.

Yukon Cornelius = hot daddy bear!

I was traumatized as a child when the Bumble cornered them in the cave. My heart races even now just thinking about how much that terrified me.

A toy is never truly happy until it is loved by a child.

Yukon is a ginger bear and Herbie is his twink lover.

The elephant was a misfit because he was spotted. Racist. The jack in the box's name was Charlie. That made him a misfit. Where is the misfit who loves cock?

I always wanted the water pistol that squirted jelly. Why is that a misfit toy? That is WAY cooler!

Why am I such a misfit?

by Anonymousreply 4412/04/2012

Rudolph had the girliest voice (I think the character actually WAS voiced by a woman), especially when he was on the verge of tears. He sounded more like a girl than Clarice! Hermy's voice wasn't quite so femme, but it did have a certain ping to it. It's hilarious that so many of the characters on "Rudolph" are now thought to be gay. I'm sure that's not what Rankin/Bass intended when they made it.

I don't see how people in the South can identify with all the cold weather scenes.

How would you like to be a bird that doesn't fly? I swim! Or a cowboy who rides - an ostrich? Or a - a - a boat that can't stay a - afloat? We're all misfits!

I watched just enough to learn that sexual arousal is the reason reindeer can fly.

I wanna see the future Mrs. Claus to remove the bun in her hair and sing in front of a fountain.

Broadcasts have removed the scene entirely.

"What were you retarded? It was a TV show for God sakes."

Oh shut the fuck up. That snow creature was a scary image for a child, even if it was on tv. There have been plenty of things on tv that have scared children. You were a child once, weren't you? Or were you always an unpleasant queen?

by Anonymousreply 5212/07/2012

The snow creature didn't scare me because he looked too much like one of my grandmothers

I always liked the scooter for Jimmy.

But after a few years of being passe, those fuckers are BACK on the streets of NYC.

R20, yes, the elephant is a misfit because he's spotted, but like you, I could never figure out what's "wrong" with the dolly.

Speaking of Christmas shows (I love the old ones from my childhood) have any of you noticed the amount of absolutely cheesy, shitty movies churned out every year on Lifetime and the Family Channel? Really bad scripts, bad acting and how many times can variations of A Christmas Carol be regurgitated?

Actually, that should have been "America's Mare." Poor Rudolph had some gender identification issues.

by Anonymousreply 5812/07/2012

Maybe Rudolph had a girly voice because the character was voiced by a woman???

by Anonymousreply 5912/07/2012

R55, some years back I read an online conversation with two of the script writers; the first thing the interviewer asked was "What was wrong with the doll?"

Their answer: "The doll's problem was supposed to be more psychological than physical. She thought she was unloved and ugly, so she acted that way (like many DLers)." Apparently that was explained in an early draft but removed closer to the shooting date.

You're all going to hell!

Really, R50? That's one of the few reasons to watch "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." I always thought that sequence seemed so adult, as it makes it so obvious that she wants to knock armatures with that burly young ginger Santa. They both really let themselves go after they shacked up though. I can't recall any puppet clergy presiding over that bohemian wedding of theirs, so I don't consider th married.
