Flashback Friday – “Heatmiser”

Sappy level – low

Here is a classic from the TV movie “The Year Without A Santa Clause”. The Rankin/Bass specials were fantastic.

Have a great weekend.

Heatmizer (SP?? I just love the z) is my FAVORITE. (Along with his dreadful brother, of course!). Thanks for starting the weekend off with a smile. Hope you have a great one.

God I love this show.

I bought the dvd this year for my son (that's my story and I'm stickin' to it). I did a little dance during the 'mizer numbers and I caught him rolling his eyes.

Love it! I just watched this with my husband in CA over the Thanksgiving weekend. I subject him to them all (Rudolph, Frosty, Grinch) once a year!

Hang in there with the mal tempo~

Love the Rankin/Bass specials!! I bought a box set last year with Rudolph, Frosty, Nestor and all the rest. Remember Baby New Year? "Those ears!"
My daughter can't get enough of them.

I'm having some kids over this weekend to decorate cookies and watch Christmas shows and this tops the list. I also bought the song from itunes and my 7 year old sings it constantly.

My favorite of all time! My mother and I, till this day, will talk about Heatmizer every Christmas!
One of our standing jokes is anyone walking around with their hair looking a mess is called a Heatmizer.
That hairdo says it all!

Thanks for the video, I'm passing it on to my family.

Ciao and thank you!

kimb - You're welcome. I thought is was spelled with a Z but online I saw it with a S.

joanne - that is a great excuse. ha

skywalker - I can't get the song out of my head either.

megan - Thanks. I hope the weather is getting better up by you. The Tiber is very high..scary. Next time I'm back in the States I might have to stock up on these classics.

milanese - there is a box set? hmmm

ms. wooden shoes - have fun decorating cookies.

felicia - that hairdo is pretty darn funny. I'll check out the new blog.

Yes, this is one of the best Christmas specials, ever! I haven't seen it in years. I know the words to this song by heart. I didn't know that I could buy this on DVD. Thanks for sharing!

I LOVE The Year Without a Santa Claus! Tonight, the spinoff "Miser Brothers' Christmas" is airing on ABC Family. I have a feeling it won't be as good as its predecessor.

I bought a collection of old Xmas movies for my daughter last year (wink wink) hoping Mr. HeatMiser would show up in one of them. For the life of me I couldn't remember in which film he sang that delightful song. Thanks for digging it up!

ms. atl - I'll probably be humming this song until the end of the month. ha

rose in cali - there is a spin-off? I kind of like the jerky stop motion. I assume with the new technology the spin-off will look better.

black and a broad - you're very welcome. enjoy those DVDS.

bftb - Hey you. check your email.
