Santa Quiz # 2

I'm so excited to be running the Santa Hustle 5k next month--all the runners receive a Santa hat, beard, and Santa race shirt!  There will be thousands of Santas at the starting line--I'm looking forward to bringing my camera!  You may want to come down to check out the Santa spectacle for yourself.  I'll be sticking around for the Post-Race Party at the Sandusky, OH race, so come, find me, and tell me your favorite Christmas TV special.

I'll also have my books for sale so this would be a great opportunity to get a signed copy to give as a gift to that pop culture junkie in your life.  If you're a runner and would like to join the Santa Hustle 5k or Half Marathon, click the link/badge on the right-hand side of the blog to find information about registering. Or, click HERE for the link to the website.

Let's play another little game:  how many of these photos of Santas do you recognize?  Each photos is taken from a Christmas TV episode, special, or movie.  Name the series or program's title by commenting below.  Some of these are harder to identify than others.  Show off your Christmas pop culture skills.  Good luck!

The Addams Family--1965's "Christmas With the Addams Family"

South Park--1999's "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics"

The Three Stooges--1949 film short "Malice in the Palace"

The Tick--1995's "The Tick Loves Santa!"

1982's Ziggy's Gift

The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour's 1973 Christmas Show

Alice--1977's "A Semi-Merry Christmas"

Beavis & Butt-head-- 1996's "Beavis & Butt-head Do Christmas."

Golden Girls--1986's "Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas"

Invader Zim--2002's "The Most Horrible Christmas Ever"


  1. More great choices! Your copy of #5 is so much cleaner than mine! Okay, I want to guess one, so I'll say #3, the Three Stooges in Malice in the Palace!

    1. #5 was hard to capture--he's rarely looking straight ahead. Excellent with the Three Stooges!

  2. 1 - Addams Family
    2 - South Park
    3 - Three Stooges
    4 - The Tick
    5 - Ziggy
    6 - Sonny and Cher
    7 - Alice
    8 - Beavis and Butthead
    9 - The Golden Girls
    10 - ???????

    1. Yup. Except #10--here's a clue: someone guest blogged about the episode during Christmas in July.

  3. I considered guessing that one because I knew it would be hard!
