Aaron's Thing of the Week, 3rd December, 2009: A Claymation Camel Christmas


Oh, have I ever got a treat for you guys this week. In the spirit of trying to get a bit of holiday cheer going around this place, I bring you one of the all-time masterpieces of Christmas television, now sadly forgotten. 

What I have for you this week is a version of the Christmas classic, "We Three Kings," which aired as part of the Carlifornia Raisins' Christmas special back when I was but a wee lad. 

I'm not exaggerating when I say the California Raisin Christmas may have been the single best half-hour of television produced in the decade of the 1980s. In fact, I dare you to find me a better. Go ahead, I'll wait. 

No, no. Take your time. 


Can't do it, can you? I didn't think so.
