How'd I forget this one?

This morning's snowstorm had my kids singing "I'm Mr. White Christmas!"

It's my favorite Christmas special, and it's the one that teaches us that catchy tunes, colorful characters, and memorable scenes are far more important than trivialities such as internal consistency or a plot that makes sense. Actually, in my elaborate analysis of the fabulous world of Heat Miser and Snow Miser, I found that the crazy non-sequiturs are a part of the fun! :D

Maybe they don't like reindeer in these parts. I know what -- we'll make her a disguise!

Take your socks off!

Instant Rover!

Wait a minute -- weren't his socks striped?

Actually, once I slowed this down enough to take the screenshots, I saw that the socks were, in fact, two-sided. So, sadly, one of the random inconsistencies is resolved. *sigh*

Oh, well, there are still lots of others. ;^)

Hi Chanson! I was watching TV the other day and saw an ad for a brand new special, "The Miser Brothers Christmas". So you're not the only one who likes the Miser brothers.

Hey Mathmom!!!

I'm not surprised -- whoever owns the copyrights for any character that's well-liked will keep milking it. I hope they do something cool and fun with these guys, but I don't really expect much....
