It’s finally December 1st, which means we can jump in our footie pajamas, pour a nice strong cup of eggnog and watch all of our guilty pleasure holiday films until we can’t get “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” out of our damn heads. Here are a few tidbits about the best of the bunch.
In 2006 the original Santa and Rudolph puppets from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer were finally rediscovered on Antiques Roadshow. A former employee for Rankin/Bass had them kept in her attic since at least the 1970s after her kids grew out of playing with them.
Sadly Rudolph had lost his red nose, and Santa’s eyebrows were completely out of shape, but they were restored and are now on display at the Center for Puppetry Arts.
