Have to go off topic again and highlight one of my other favorite Christmas specials, Year Without a Santa Claus, another Rankin Bass classic. Here are my favorite scenes, Heat Miser and Snow Miser. I get in my head all the time!
Could use a little Heat Miser around here. High tomorrow is 8 with 30 below wind chill. Winter is definitely here!
I also found a really cool blog about a guy who is a self proclaimed Rankin Bass historian. His blog is at: http://enchantedworldofrankinbass.blogspot.com/ There is some really cool stuff on there. It turns out he restored the Santa and Rudolf puppets from Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and some pics from the restoration can be found here: http://timespacetoys.stores.yahoo.net/moreph.html You can also buy figurines from Frosty and Santa Claus is Coming to Town and some other fun specials.
Will be returning to the vintage stuff soon. Just needed a little fun.
Heads up for all you Christmas special lovers, Charlie Brown Christmas is on ABC tomorrow 8 e/7c
