How's it going my gumdrops? Yesterday was Saint Nickolas Eve otherwise known as Krampus Day. Today is Saint Nicholas Day. Hopefully, dear old Saint Nick left you something special in your stocking.
Over these next 5 weeks, there will be Christmas themed blogs. Notice that I didn't say, "holiday." No, I am intentionally being "politically incorrect." Everyone should celebrate their own holidays in peace without other people taking offense.
People can wish me a "Merry Christmas" or Yule, Solstice, Hanukkah, etc. and I will NOT take offense to it because they'll be wishing me and others a specific happy holiday. It's the thought that counts much like buying "holiday" presents.
It seems like more people are really getting tired of the constant need to walk on egg shells for everyone. God knows I am. If they don't like it, they can go kick rocks or go dash themselves against those rocks.
Speaking of Saint Nicholas Day, it's only fitting to have an animated short. After all, the holiday has fallen on Cartoon Sunday. Earlier, I stumbled upon an old rare gem. Some of you may be familiar with MGM's Happy Harmonies.
Happy Harmonies was before my time. It was the name of a 36-episode animated cartoon distributed by MGM. It was produced by Hugh Harmon and Rudolf Ising between 1936 to 1938.
According to what I have read, Happy Harmonies cartooons were similar to Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies. As I said earlier, these cartoons were before my time. Therefore, I can't comment based on either franchise's cartoons. I can only say I stumbled upon a rare gem by MGM.
Earlier, I finished watching Happy Harmonies' episode, "Alias St. Nick." Through the eyes of a 33-year-old woman, I thought it was a cute yet ANCIENT classic. "Alias St. Nick" reminded me of Tom and Jerry except from 1935.
Actually, Tom and Jerry was created in 1940. That cartoon is the same age as my grandmother. Wow!
As I was saying, I thought Happy Harmonies' "Alias St. Nick" was cute yet ancient. I'm bound to be biased, since it was a house with a bunch of cute little mice. The main mouse was awfully "naughty." He kept saying there was no such thing as Santa Claus and continuously tried to prove everyone wrong.
Don't you just hate those die hard skeptics? They have to ALWAYS find a way to prove, that someone's "wrong" about any little thing. It's so annoying.
Anyway, here is Happy Harmonies' "Alias St. Nick" for today's Cartoon Sunday.

I hope you enjoy your Saint Nicholas Day!
