So...they took the arguably best version of A Christmas Carol, and edited the shit out of it to make it awful. Getting rid of all that pesky acting, setup, character arc, and third Christmas ghost. Damn, I think we owe Sandy Frank some respect after this.

I think Castle Films edited it, not RT.

Watched this last night and wanted to put in word of how much I enjoyed it. Especially since the discussion at Satellite News is all trolls and stupidity.
All of the MJ and B shorts have been great. The Christmas Carol was a little weak for them I think because of the editing (it was all over the place and never gave them something to get a hold of--ah, Castle Films) but loved the commercial, the Dean Martin Elf fever dream, and the Lamb short. The "host skits" were good though went on a little long at times.
Now let's see a full length riff from them!

As a child, I used to take a razor blade and cut through the tape, just enough to be sure that I'd gotten what I asked for. Which was invariably a video game.

Now I have a 20 month old niece, and I love her to death. But I can't help but feel that she gets all the attention and gifts  >:( All I wanted was a $350 nVidia GTX 970 graphics card. Is that too much to ask?

But then she came over to me, grabbed my index fingers, and led me through the crowd of people she didn't know. I'm 6'3", and she's this tiny girl. Yet the fact that she wanted to have me with her was the best gift I've ever received.
