About Christmas TV History

Animator Corky Quakenbush

People keep asking me about the insane Christmas animated shorts that aired on MadTV. If you haven't seen them, you're missing something.

Raging Rudolph

The Reinfather

A Pack of Gifts Now--this is my favorite!! Rudolph plays Martin Sheen's character in Apocalypse Now, with Hermey as Dennis Hopper's reporter and bald Santa as Brando. "The Ho-Ho-Horror." THIS is why I love Christmas TV.

These shorts were animated in stop-motion by Corky Quakenbush--check out his site: Space Bass Films. These animated shorts are certainly worth owning.

Among other things, he also animated the intro to Denis Leary's Merry F#$%in' Christmas Special which will air at 3 am (EST) on Comedy Central, Dec. 25th and at 2: 30 am (EST) Dec. 26th.
