And did you know that it won an Emmy? True story.

It aired on December 21st, 1987 and was hosted by two dinosaurs named Rex and Herb (never quite understood that part but, you know, it's Claymation).

I remember my parents recording this on their Beta home VCR, complete with commercials and all. The CBS special was created by 17 animators, seven sculptors, and five animation directors.

Carol of the Bells always freaked me out a little bit. The camels were, by far, my favorite. And "Here We Come-a-Waffling" always made me hungry for waffles.

You're welcome for this blast from the past.
