Today’s Christmas Video

In 1986 the Monkees – Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones and Peter Tork – reunited, without Michael Nesmith, for an extremely successful tour.  This was greatly fueled by MTV’s airing The Monkees 2 or 3 times a day so it made sense that they would star in the network’s Christmas video that year. (Yes, Virginia – there was a time when MTV actually played music videos.) The trio joined such MTV Veejays as Martha Quinn, Downtown Julie Brown and Alan Hunter – along with a special appearance by Santa Claus – for this delightful Christmas medley.

Today’s Christmas video is a fun piece of animation set to the 1955 recording of White Christmas by The Drifters.

Now that the Christmas season is officially upon us, I’ve decided to challenge myself to post a Christmas-related video every day through December 25th. Since today is Black Friday, I can’t think of a more appropriate one than Stan Freberg’s 1958 masterpiece condemning the commercialization of the holiday, Green Chri$tma$. This is audio-only and features Freberg, Daws Butler, Marvin Miller, Will Wright and the Jud Conlon Chorale, with musical direction by Billy May.

This production becomes more relevant every year….and that’s not a good thing.
