Holiday Leftovers

Here's some holiday season leftovers from last year for your viewing pleasure...
In 1978, the SESAME STREET gang celebrated Christmas TWICE - Once at home on PBS...
and also on CBS with special guest stars ranging from Michael Jackson to Ethel Merman!!!
'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS was a Rankin-Bass animated special that still airs annually on cable. I always found it charming except for it's odd depiction of Santa's red nose and cheeks. He looked freakish to me.
What do you think?

Meanwhile, back in the Stone Age, The Flintstones are celebrating the birth of Christ before it even happened.
In fact The Flintstones celebrate Christmas through time travel as seen here where they frolic with  anthropomorphic animals from the 1960s and the Jetsons, from the far future.
Even 'tweenage Peebles and Bamm-Bamm get in on the holiday fun.
Betty Rubble is absent from this gathering, she must be baby-sitting Boo-Boo Bear who is also not present.

Here Yogi Bear, sans Boo-Boo is taking a turn at playing Santa.
And here Yogi is "helping" Santa...or is he helping himself to Ranger Smith's new skis?
And finally here's Yogi and Boo-Boo decorating their tree with painted snowballs. Shouldn't they be hibernating?
Looks like Tom & Jerry have put all their feuding aside for the holidays - and Jerry's found himself a little gray mousefriend to celebrate with! Hope all my readers and friends have a wonderful holiday season whether they are spending it on Sesame Street, in Bedrock or in Jellystone Park. Peace on Earth and all that.
