Okay, so the fifth day was really yesterday and it is 8:00pm on Sunday night. Hey, Saturday was a busy day, what can I say?
I LOVE the 1970 “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” Christmas special, an absolute must during the holidays. I like it so much it is one of the few I could actually watch during the summer and still enjoy the heck out of it. Fred Astaire does a wonderful job as the voice of Mailman Special Delivery “S.D.” Kluger and his rendition of the 1934 song is simply wonderful.
I have the DVD of this because ABC Family actually cut out the scene when Burgermeister Meisterburger torches the toys in front of the children of Sombertown. Yep, in this wonderful era when everything has to be PC that was deemed too horrific for kids to watch. Just another example of why we have raised a generation of sissy la-las.
