X-mas Cheer

Anybody who grew up in greater Chicagoland and is around 47 years old *cough* like myself watched Ray Rayner and Garfield Goose on WGN. At Christmas time Garfield Goose would play stop motion shorts like Hardrock, Coco and Joe, Suzy Snowflake and the doo-woppingest, most hep cat daddy-o version of Frosty the Snowman ever. I've searched high and low and found the best versions available of each below.

Kids still love this stuff (according to my 5-year old).

I was just talking to a 30-something woman yesterday about the afterschool Christmas show that used to be on every December on one of the Buffalo teevee stations. It featured Santa and a silly elf. So sweet. We all used to watch them every afternoon, and the excitement for Christmas morning just grew. Not commercial at all, as far as I remember.

I don't know how the actors liked doing them, but they sure provided great entertainment and memories for all of us.

Not even a blip on the screen these days. Kids are still kids, aren't they?
