Old v. Gold 112: Christmas TV I

A very special (as all things at Yudetide are) two-part edition of Old v. Gold looks past the nostalgic tinsel to the dangerously dry tinder trunk of classic Christmas TV!

Part 1 is a double feature, wrapping together, in the gaudiest of bows, the decidedly downbeat, jazzy attack on commercial Xmas that is A Charlie Brown Christmas and the nonsense-encrypted holiday heist of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Correctional note: The Hobbit was published in 1937, not the ’50s as stated in this podcast. We will all learn from the mistake, grow, and move on.

That sounds dirty: “I’m buyin’ a time-share on Mount Crumpet.”
