Welcome back Christmas Cousins!

 

We watched and reviewed the 1986 classic, “Santa Bear’s First Christmas”.

 

And you’re now probably asking the same thing we keep asking ourselves is…why?

 

Frankly, we are still not sure…

 

Anyway, on this episode, we try to get to the bottom of why Gerry chose this special, what we loved, disliked about it and did we bail halfway through.

 

And, of course, what lessons we all learned from it…it’s an ’80s Christmas special after all…there’s always a lesson in there somewhere!

 

But seriously, why are we reviewing this?!?

 

Audience Question:

Are you a big Santa Bear fan? Have you seen this? What are your thoughts?

🦃 It’s 2015, and in my search for a noisy cryptid I accidentally freed 175 roided-up turkeys, but neither of those things is the real monster.

Join us as we rediscover a long lost Thanksgiving special concept Jim Henson dreamed up in the 1960s and meet the Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow.

Welcome to episode 117 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this episode, I talk about the Christmas music from the obscure Group Sounds band, Takehisa Kono and the Highways.

I hope you enjoyed the Highways’ Christmas music. One of the things I enjoy most about collecting Japanese Christmas music is that there’s such a wealth of it to discover. The sonojournals and flexi-discs add another entire layer to it. Almost none of the music that was exclusively released on flexi-disc ever made it to vinyl or CD, and there is very little reliable documentation about them. It’s always exciting when I find something new. I have plenty of other flexi-discs to cover including some of the scarcest and most sought-after flexis.

Be sure to listen in on the 25th for my 5th annual Christmas in July special. I have some really great tropical and summery Christmas songs lined up, and you’re sure to enjoy them.

As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

Remember, I’ve added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you’d like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!

What’s up, dudes? The Christmas release “Clue” is soooo good that I have to cover it again! This time I’ve got Matt Spaulding from North Pole Radio and Ken Kessler from Sounds of Christmas with me to solve the mystery!

When six strangers are invited to a mysterious mansion for dinner, murder is on the menu. Mr. Boddy, the host, is blackmailing all of them, from the jealous wife to the adulterous doctor to the maid’s employer. One by one others arrive at the house only to be picked off as they’re implicated as blackmail accomplices. With three different endings, the movie answers the questions of who killed Mr. Boddy, and where, and with what.

The December release quickly became a cult classic. Jeff interviews cast and crew from Leslie Ann Warren and Michael McKean to director Jonathan Lynn. What was the enigmatic fourth ending? How did Jonathan Lynn end up writing the script? Why weren’t the characters wearing the colors of their game counterparts?

Blackmail? Yep. Murder? Of course. Flames on the side of my face? Only if Madeline Kahn is saying it. So grab your revolver, shoot the singing telegram, and run from room to room listening to this episode!

🎃 It’s 1986, and one student at a magical boarding school is struggling to fit in while having to deal with a hard-nosed potions teacher and bullying from a golden child whose father will hear about this, but finds comfort in broom flying and encouragement from the kindly old headmaster.

No, not that one.

What’s up, dudes? The orange cat is back! Yes, Art Kilmer from A Cozy Christmas is back with me to talk all about Garfield in the sweltering heat. It’s another Christmas in July, as Garfield, Odie, and Jon put up some decorations and get in the holiday spirit to cool down. Yes! It’s the Garfield and Friends episode “Heatwave Holiday!”

Garfield and gang suffer from the hottest July ever. He fills up a kiddie pool, gets his swimsuit on, jumps in, and hits the ground because the water evaporated. Deciding to “think cool,” he uses the fridge and sets the automatic ice maker to the blizzard setting, blanketing the yard with snow. Jon agrees to Garfield’s plan, grabs the Christmas decorations, and trims the tree. He even hangs lights on the house!

His neighbors across the street and try to outdo Jon with decorations. Soon the entire neighborhood follows suit, and shortly after  the whole town is decked out for Christmas! Eventually Jon and the pets exchange presents, but before they go caroling, an urgent tv bulletin states merely that “it is not Christmas.” A little heartbroken, Jon turns off the tv, and decides to turn in.

As Garfield sleeps, he’s awoken by the sound of sleighbells. He investigates, runs into Santa leaving presents under the tree, and tells him that it’s not Christmas, then heads back to bed realizing that of all people, Santa should know better. Santa flies off laughing

Giant dog bone? Check. Dope Christmas light display? Yep. Super duper fridge ice maker? With enough snow to make a snowman! So grab your decorations, trim your tree, and cool down to this episode on Garfield and Friends “Heatwave Holiday!”

Welcome to episode 116 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this episode, I talk about the 1970 album, “X’mas Golden Hits,” by the Candle-Light Orchestra and the Singers Three.

I hope you enjoyed “X’mas Golden Hits” as much as I do. While some of the albums labeled “Now Sound” can put you to sleep, this is one I can listen to over and over again. It’s loaded with fun arrangements, and the Singers Three never disappoint.

Join me back here next time for the Christmas music from the obscure Group Sounds band, Takehisa Kono and the Highways. In my opinion, they’re one of the better GS bands out there, despite only being found almost exclusively on flexi-discs. Then join me on the 25th for my fifth annual Christmas in July special. I’ll be covering some great tropical and summery Christmas tunes that you’re sure to enjoy!

As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

Remember, I’ve added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you’d like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
