THE TV UNIVERSE AS WINTER WONDERLAND ran a contest to celebrate Festivus, asking its readers to rewrite a Christmas song to reflect our Television obsessions.

Click here if you want to read the winning entry by Liz:

I entered the contest as well, and the song reflects my "big tent" view of Toobworld.

I don't want my entry to die a lonely death in the comments section of the contest post. So to give it some semblance of immortality, I'd like to now present "Living In The TV Universe" (sung to the tune of "Winter Wonderland"):

Killer Bees
Hear them buzzin'
Patty Lane
And her cousin
All of the casts
From shows in the past
Living in the TV Universe!

Mister Ed
and the Riddler
And from 'Roots',
there is Fiddler,
Plus all of the folks
From 'Diff'rent Strokes'
Living in the TV Universe!

Hooterville's the place where they can gather
To celebrate the closing of the year
We'll see Beaver Cleaver (Jerry Mathers)
And Floyd the Barber played by H. McNear.
Doctor Who,
Bert and Ernie,
on his journey
A Sanford named Fred
A Baxter named Ted
Living in the TV Universe!

Archie Bunker argues with the Sleestaks
Jeannie's blinking after Fonzie flirts
Sgt. Friday's looking just for the facts
And Kirk beams down expendable "red-shirts".
Emma Peel
and Miss Piggy,
Lennie and
his pal Squiggy
Tossing hats with Mary
It's legen- wait!- dary!
Living in the TV Universe!

Living in the TV Universe....
Living in the TV Universe....
