If my memory is right, today will be the last day of Christmas on Infinite Earths… in July. I hope it’s been moderately enjoyable… I know it’s helped me come up with interesting (to me) ways to continue sharing content without the constant urge to punch my laptop screen in every time I try and upload images to Blogger!
Really, Google… ya gonna fix this crap? Or just keep blaming the phenomenon on your userbase? It ain’t like you need us. What’s really troubling to me right now is that Podbean is currently undergoing a very similar dashboard “facelift”. Let’s just hope it ends up being a little bit more friendly than this one.
This was a very fun episode to put together… and, from what I can remember, quite a “meaty” one as well. In addition to our usual stuff… creator bios, silly voices, etc… we discussed a lot about the Treasury format of the Bronze Age, as well as some Christmassy myths (there are a few links included below).
Also below, some of the “activity” pages from this very issue!
BREAK: Snippet from “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” television special, 1964
“Was Clement Moore’s ‘A Visit From St. Nicholas’ actually written by Henry Longfellow?” Link
“Why is Santa Such a Jerk in ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer?” from Huffington Post Link
And here’s those pages from the issue we kept talking about!
One thought on “Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill, Episode 121: Limited Collectors’ Edition C-24 (1973)”
So I heard about this Christmas special around the July 4th holiday. It's from 1979, but I really don't think I've ever seen it before. The title is RUDOLPH AND FROSTY'S CHRISTMAS IN JULY, but I think a better title would be RUDOLPH MEETS GAME OF THRONES.
It's actually worth watching the whole thing, but just the first ten minutes should give you a good idea about what to expect. Rudolph always had some sketchy undertones, but this is dark.
