That would be from the 1977 classic, Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas

I'm not just a whimsical figure who wears a charming suit 
and affects a jolly demeanor. You know, I..I...I'm a symbol.
I'm a symbol Of the human ability to be able to suppress the 
selfish And hateful tendencies that rule the major part of our lives. 
If...you can't believe, if you can't accept anything on faith,
Then you're doomed for a life dominated by doubt.

 

What movie is this from?

:clap::clap: You've got it.:clap::clap:

 

I know for a lot of you, the 1934 version is better, but I grew up with the 1994 version and this quote has stuck with me.

When he was little my son loved the Count from Sesame Street.  EVERYTHING Count.  I would call him on the phone and count things with him in the Count's voice....  The Count did a song about the bones in the body with his skeleton friend - so my lab skeleton become my 3-year olds newest best buddy! (seriously - he played with the skeleton....  We went to Disney - he wanted to see the Haunted Mansion because that was where the Count and Mr. Bones lived....  in Nightmare Before Christmas the main character was a skeleton - so he was cool too - my son didnt have a stuffed teddy bear - he had a beenie baby Count and a stuffed skeleton Jack from Disney....

needless to say we had to find Count videos - this included the Munsters - we wore out the DVD set of the TV show.... but the above quote was from the TV movie attempt to resurrect the franchise with Munsters Scary Little Christmas - it was horrible, but it did have the Count in it.....

That was not what I was initially thinking.  But I had forgotten about this.

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?
