Blessed Are The Pure In Heart, For They Shall See God. (The Little Drummer Boy)
Happy Monday, Christmas Fanatics! And welcome to the final official episode of April! Can you believe that? We are officially a third of the way through the year! Time is flying!
This week, journey with the elves back to the wonderful world of Rankin/Bass to discuss the 1968 holiday special, "The Little Drummer Boy"! As is always the case when the hosts cover a Rankin/Bass special, opinions are all over the place with this one, with one elf defending the special, one elf enjoying it more than the other Rankin/Bass specials previously covered, and one absolutely hating it. Meanwhile, opinions voiced by our listeners are on opposite ends of the spectrum - people either really enjoy it, or really dislike it; there doesn't seem to be middle ground!
Discussed in this episode are the racist stereotypes perpetuated by character designs and historical (in)accuracy in this special; the origins of the traditional carol version of "The Little Drummer Boy"; Apple's recent unveiling event; Michael Keaton's officially announced return to the role of Batman in the upcoming "The Flash" movie; some fascinating Disney trivia that Anthony learned in a recent episodes of one of his favorite podcasts, "Dis-Order: Every Disney Film"; and much, much more! All of it together makes for a fun, fascinating episode you want to be sure you don't miss!
Enjoy, y'all! And keep your eyes on your feeds this upcoming Thursday for the next installment of "Another Christmas Story" - Chapter Thirteen, which will be read to you by the awesome and always hilarious Mike Westfall of "Advent Calendar House"!
