Burns and Allen – Santa And The Wicked Witch. 411223. (retro295) Gracie and Herman sit up on Christmas Eve. She tries to tell him a story to encourage him to go to bed. She reminds Herman of a movie they had seen, and tries to tell him about a wicked witch.
As Herman dozes, a dream sequence begins. Gracie visits the North Pole, and sings a special song to Herman, O Duckie. They meet a sad Chris Kringle, played by Arthur Q Brian, the voice of Elmer Fudd.
As Gracie cruises around with Herman on their flying carpet, she meets George, the strongest man in the world. Jimmy Cash sings, Beautiful Dreamer. He is Tommy Tucker, singing for his supper.
They meet up with the wicked witch. Though the witch is crabby, Gracie feels sorry for her as they talk together.
When the witch leaves, Paul Whiteman is Humpty Dumpty, and talks with George and Gracie. The little band of characters set off on a march to get the witch. The band play an arrangement of Jingle Bells as an interlude.
At the witch’s castle, our heros meet a skeleton who invites them inside. Will they be able to get Santas toys returned to them? First, she has to show how nasty she can be, and puts George on the stretching machine. There’s a chance he can be saved if Bill Goodwin, Aladdin, can use his magic lamp. In the end it all works out for the good as the show credit cuts off abruptly.
Art looney. I’m Getting Nothing for Christmas.
