Forgotten Classic Video(s) of the Week

Since Christmas is almost here, I wanted to post these old Centaur Productions videos from the '50s that my readers in Chicago are sure to remember. I never saw these when I was a kid growing up in Pittsburgh, but I used to see them every year when I was going to college in Indiana, PA. They always aired on the Altoona/Johnstown station, WJAC. They also air on Chicago's WGN, which a lot of people around the country get in their cable packages, so several of you non-Midwesterners and non-Pennsylvanians may have seen these, too.

Fix yourself a nice cup of hot chocolate and enjoy "Suzy Snowflake," "Hardrock, Coco & Joe," and "Frosty the Snowman."

My parents grew up with these. Even though I grew up in the Chicago area too, I only first saw them a few years ago when WGN did a special on their classic Christmas programming. Fun stuff.

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
