Children today cannot truly comprehend the meaning of the term “Christmas special.” Netflix, Hulu and Youtube (not to mention pirated movie sites) now make “specials” available at leisure. There was a time, kids, when the program you see below was an event unto itself. It aired once a year. If you missed it, then you missed it. (I never did.)
I remember loving most of this, and being allowed a bowl of either chocolate or coffee ice cream from the box in the freezer. (Did anybody else grow up with coffee ice cream?)
You know what would be a very marketable idea? Making a toy line that reproduces the “Misfit Toys.” People would buy those.
