Wonkette's Top Ten Stories Got Run Over By A Reindeer
But come read them anyway!
Hello and welcome to the weekend!
One really fun and normal thing about the late 80s and early 90s was that there were breakfast cereals, Saturday morning cartoons, and holiday specials based on pretty much anything that, well, existed . Even if those things were not exactly appropriate for children, like the 1991 children's "The Toxic Avengers" based, yes, on the Troma movie The Toxic Avenger .

The line between advertising mascots and children's entertainment was also frequently blurred, as with The California Raisins, who were created to sell raisins but ended up being sold as toys, selling their own albums, having their own cartoon on Saturday mornings and doing several specials, including an appearance on a Christmas special called A Claymation Christmas Special , in which they sang Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. Or, rather, The Temptations sang Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and they ... lip synched, I guess.
Happy holidays, here it is!
