I have fond childhood memories of Mr. McGoo's Christmas Carol.  ;D  I wonder whatever became of that?  ???

I'm glad if I brought back good memories to you, John.  :)

And to think if I hadn't become obsessed with "Brokeback Mountain" I would never have known this.  Life can always surprise you.  ;D

Ha ha, I LiKE this Swedish tradition of watching Kalle Anka. :)

Do tell us about it, lovely Swedish Brokies. Do you and your families follow the tradition?


My folks is Jewish.

So we don't celebrate Xmas. I did watch Kalle Anka now and then while I grew up,
mainly to see what all the fuss was about. It's quite entertaining.  It's true that
the show is deeply ingraved in the Swedish culture, for whatever reason.
You can reference to it in whichever context, and everyone will get it.
