As Keaton was mainly known for comedies at the time, fans feared the film would be a campy comedy, like the 1960s TV show.
Music Monday: The Temptations - Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Hey! Remember when I was complaining that the California Raisins' version of Rudolph on their Christmas special is better than the one on their Christmas album?

Music Monday - The Doctor Who Christmas Song
Doctor Who was a full-blown pop culture phenomenon when it debuted in the UK in the 1960s. The UK fell into the full throes of "Dalekmania." People just went nuts for those genocidal aliens! And from there, we get this Christmas tune, "I'm Gonna Spend My Christmas With a Dalek." youtu.be/GuBJ5H9m3Sc

Mariah Carey has made more than $60 million from her Christmas song "All I Want For Christmas Is You." The song has charted every Christmas since it first came out in 1994, and finally hit #1 in 2019!
