SO MUCH PAIN
I don't know what this next song is called, despite hearing it a billion times in my life. This is how it starts: "Bells will be ringing the sad sad news....oh what a Christmas to have the blues...."
Please Come Home for Christmas. You're welcome.

Some other thoughts:
  • I don't have a problem with non-Christmas songs showing up in Christmas specials/albums/etc. as long as they're themed in the spirit of the season. Favorite Things fits in snugly alongside the holiday songs of old - Sound of Music is usually shown around Christmastime. That said, a local Christmas concert/show in my area has some especially egregious uses of non-Christmas songs - this year's show (I didn't see it, they just posted the setlist in a Facebook group I'm in) featured, alongside actual holiday standards, such bangers as Supermarket Flowers, I'm Still Here, Born This Way, and Chandelier (which seemingly was put in solely because they had a chandelier that an aerialist could actually dangle from).
  • If you want a REALLY good singing show, look no further than The Masked Singer. The mystery element gives it an edge over the other singing shows.
  • It's true that The Voice hasn't spawned any real big stars like Kelly, but Melanie Martinez has made quite a name for herself, and even THEN she never won.

Another recommendation I'd like to make is A Very Minty Christmas, the My Little Pony G3 Christmas special. It premiered on Disney Channel during their Playhouse Disney block and on Toon Disney, I believe around the same time as the Timothy Tweedle special I posted.

You know who else eats Corn Flakes? MY MOM! Sorry, I couldn't resist.

P.S. Two other people/YTP folk I'm acquainted with made a collaborative review of Shrek the Halls. Check it out, will ya?

Today, variety in my country's Cartoon Network's schedule has died.
I'm Planning to make a New Qubo schedule With Several New and Returning Shows (With one of them being Jacob Two-Two), No Paid Programming and the Return of the 4 hour Marathons.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the 7th Year Anniversary of its series finale. It ended up becoming my favorite adaptation of the Scooby-Doo Franchise and found out about Lewis Black by name (I had heard his voice in some earlier shows).
