Anyone whose looked at my advent calendars before knows that I tend to put this video in there somewhere. So it's become my tradition. It's "A Child's Christmas in Space" from Mystery Science Theater 3000. The whole sketch is included which includes Crow's letters to Santa's elves and Joel's ode to the 70s office party. Enjoy won't you?
This time I did not chose The Muppets instead I give you the original clip of this song from the movie "The Lemondrop Kid" (1951) The song was written for this movie which was filmed in the summer of 1950. Bing Crosby then recorded the song for the Christmas season of 1950 and it became a hit. So Marilyn Maxwell and Bob Hope were called back to the studio in late 1950 to refilm this number to make it more elaborate. The film was released in spring 1951. This by the way is one of my favorite Christmas songs.
