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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
