It’s for the rest of us…
The Judy Garland Christmas Show 1963
The clips of this show are too numerous and all fabulous. Therefore this year I’m posting the entire show including the vintage 1963 commercials. Enjoy!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
Due to the high camp nature of this Andy Williams television special clip, I repost it from years past as we move into the holiday season.

Bewitched spells for the holiday
Samantha always pulled her holidays off without a glitch. Maybe we could learn a spell or two from her.
After seeing all those clips of her talent for getting through the holiday season, I think I’ll treat myself to a holiday episode. Want to join me?

Steve Martin’s Christmas Wish
Steve Martin – A Christmas Wish – SNL 1986
A classic as only two talents of highest caliber could perform it.
Bob Hope & Dolly Parton – Silver Bells – Bob Hope Christmas Special 1988
Bobby Pickett’s original is our favorite version of this Halloween Classic. This is his appearance live on American Bandstand. While I’m 99.5% positive this is a lip synch, he is live and his facial expressions are priceless.

Tom Hanks nails this SNL Halloween Classic.

Frightening holiday specials
What holiday special scene put you on edge as a child?
This scene from Rudolf the Read Nosed Reindeer always got me.
SNL does it so good…
