Jingle Bell Rocks! Bob Dorough Interview Vid

via Falalalala

Documentary filmmaker Mitch Kezin (Jingle Bell Rocks!) has posted some neat interview footage featuring jazzman Bob Dorough...

..."So, in the spirit of giving (and sharing) I offer you this little tidbit from a much longer interview I conducted with the legendary bebopper BOB DOROUGH. In the first of several clips I'll be posting soon, Bob talks about his landmark collaboration with MILES DAVIS on the stellar "Blue Xmas (To Whom It May Concern)" a song written (and vocalized) by Bob in 1962 for the Columbia records holiday jazz compilation JINGLE BELL JAZZ."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Xmas at Animated Toast

Animated Toast continues to spotlight Christmas toonage - most recently covering the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles holiday offering "The Christmas Aliens".

"...During the show's third season, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aired its Christmas Special. It follows Michelangelo as he saves a truckload of toys from some thugs who want to ruin Christmas for a group of orphans. And while Splinter, April and the others are setting up a nice Christmas dinner in their sewer home, Mike takes part in a high speed car chase to retrieve the stolen toys.

The Christmas Aliens is a retelling of an old Michelangelo one-shot comic book. The Christmas story follows very closely to the original, only straying with the "family dinner" scenes featuring characters from the show. Fans of the comics will be happy to see Klunk, a kitten that Michelangelo befriends, make his first appearance in the show in this episode..."
