Season's Greetings.

Last year, we made a little card for the holidays, and it was fun and all, but does Shakespeare in a Santa hat under palm trees really send the right message?  Shakespeare never appeared in Florida!

So this year, here are all 10 parts of 1972's Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny, filmed in Dania,  featuring kids from Ruth Foreman's Peter Pan Playhouse, starring Jay Clark, Pat Morell, Bob O'Oconnell, Ruth McMahon, Heather Grinter, Mike Yuenger, Sue Cable, and Shay Garner as Thumbelina.

Enjoy!  (Better with heavily spiked egg nog.)  (and...'sandwiches.')

Time for another drink!

Potty break!

Pot break!

More booze!

Heroin, anyone?

Hey, shroooms!

We're all growing older....

Is it just me, or does this movie need a really good chase scene?

Into the land of the Flower Children...

Hey, Santa's still in this movie! Remember him?

If you made it through all that, well, you've participated in an all-but-forgotten South Florida ritual. Oh, who are we kidding? This thing hasn't seen the light of day since 1974.

As the Agony Booth puts it:
Unfortunately, kids, the charter of this website requires that this be a terrible children's film. If you come across this movie at your local video store, you can rest assured that its only purpose in being there is to prop up the rest of the videos on the shelf. If you pick it up, don't be surprised if the rest of the row suddenly comes crashing down on your head.
Yeah, that's about right.

Merry Christmas!
