The Mayor of Chickentown joins us for one of our favorite subjects/obsessions: animated holiday specials. Seriously, we spend a stupid amount of time thinking about them all year. So this week we present a Top 4 1/2 List of our favorite supporting characters from holiday cartoons! (Not just cartoons, actually; Muppets count too.) Join us as we pit Miser Brother against Miser Brother, ponder the sleeping arrangements in Whoville, explore which versions of Jack Frost are part of the Rankin Bass shared universe, revisit our weird theories about Hermey the Elf, defend the eating habits of the Bumble, celebrate the musical genius of the Riverbottom Nightmare Band, engage in a bizarre bit of holiday matchmaking (perhaps involving a Wookiee), and much more. So even if you're a creepy winter warlock, put one creepy foot in front of the other and join us. Bring your own nog.
