I'm sending this scene out to my six year old nephew Thomas. When he wanted to watch the special last year, I grumbled against it. The stop motion puppetry was archaic; and I would rather have been watching either "How The Grinch Stole Christmas!" or "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol".
But I watched this scene and found myself very moved by its emotional kick.
I just hope it didn't bleep off Jesus because they played fast and loose with the actual story........
As the Trickster once said, "Reality is boring, that's why I change it whenever I can."
I'm just "The Man Who Viewed Too Much", and "Inner Toob" is a blog exploring and celebrating the 'reality' of an alternate universe in which everything that ever happened on TV actually takes place.
Most of my theories about the TV Universe come from thinking inside the box and thus can't be proven. But I've never been one to shy away from a tall tale.....
Remember: "The more you watch, the more you've seen!"
