When I saw that the Rocko Christmas Special was to be included in the Season 2 RML DVD collection, it made me want to poop snow with joy.
I remember editing this thing up to a day before it was to air. It has some great characters that were never seen before or after, like the little elf, Fruitcake Man, and do you recall? The most famous elf of all?
That would be MITCH. He had 3 legs.
We actually had a tough time with our parody of the “Rudolph” song. ( you know. The one the dad elf sings where all of the elves are named after hand tools. )You’ll notice how off the actual song Tom Kenny tried to keep to avoid legal issues. Apparently, the people who owned the song only made money at Christmas, so they were very meticulous on copyright infringement. Even parody.
Directed and storyboarded by Doug Lawrence and Robert Scull. Fantastic job.
Ahhhhhhhh,,, the spirit of the holidays.
