Funny Christmas Comedy Favorites ( 2018 )

Posted by officialericcrooks - December 7th, 2018


For all those pop culture fans out there ,

Here's my favorite Christmas specials and stuff !

Maybe there's some that's your favorites too !

 

Funny Christmas Comedy Favorites

 

( as of December 7 2018 )

 

It’s holiday time once again and in no order , I’d like to talk about some of my all time favorite Christmas Comedy Funnies !

 

 

 

( 1. Twisted Christmas by Bob Rivers

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twisted_Christmas

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/bob-rivers-twisted-radio-twisted-christmas-boxed-set/268000250

 

https://www.amazon.com/Twisted-Christmas-Rivers-Comedy-Corp/dp/B000002JLV

 

I can’t believe this 1988 album is 30 years old , probably because it’s as old as me.

This is totally going to show my age but I grew up when movies where on VHS tapes and music was on Audio Cassettes.

And if you had a CD or even a rarely seen Laserdisc in the 1990s , it’s like showing your fellow poor working class friends and family and their kids what real gold looks like.

Anyway ,

 

I remember hearing “ The 12 Pains of Christmas “ which was probably one of my introductions to “ Audio Comedy “.

 

I think I have the CD to this album somewhere.

I know it’s on Apple Music / iTunes so it doesn’t matter right ?

 

I love this album not because it’s a hilarious rude parody of Christmas , but I have a loving heart for audio comedy like the Cheech and Chong comedy albums.

 

I even did a satirical Audio Comedy show which I should upload to YouTube as well as my audio comedy albums.

Also it’s a similar process of how The Erica Crooks Show and my Animated Cartoon films are made.

There’s even an animation I did based on the Elvis sketch from this album.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmLDBmrkhCo

 

 

And here’s my animation with me and my friend’s idea for a webshow which we were inspired by this audio sketch from Bob Rivers , but our show didn’t go past a test.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veZ90xzBrSo

 

Still my Elvis parody from the early episodes of The Erica Crooks Show was also inspired by the Bob Rivers sketch.

 

The Elvis Parody was on the show through 2006 - 2007 and premiered on the American Idol parody.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vcQQKn9GHQ

 

I think I build that Elvis puppet lip-syncing to the Bob Rivers sketch during the pre-filmed days of The Erica Crooks Show but I stopped doing that due to copyright infringement blah blah blah.

And I DID A LOT OF THAT !

 

Another favorite of mine is Wreck The Malls which might have been my early introduction to Punk Rock. :)

 

 

 

( 2. Jim Henson’s Muppets related

 

If you know just what a Jim Henson / Muppet nerd I am , this one is obvious.

 

From Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas

Alright , I confess . The best scenes in the special always involve Kermit and The River Bottom Nightmare Gang

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ3cWWNXBHg

http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Riverbottom_Nightmare_Band

 

I went to see the musical with my mother and I am enjoying “ Jam Session “ on the recently released Soundtrack.

 

Now why did I find this hilarious t-shirt ?

https://www.etsy.com/listing/658340561/emmet-otters-jug-band-christmas-all-i

 

to perhaps the #1 Muppet Special of all time “ Muppet Family Christmas “ .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAzf2bwilro

 

( FUN FACT : The voice of Steve Whitmire’s Turkey in this special influenced me to create the voice of the sort of host of The Erica Crooks Show “ Barney The Hand “

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZG6tRWwFdQ

 

The late 1980s was the best built versions of The Muppets since Muppets Take Manhattan . Since then they’ve looked more and more off model through the years ( more so when Puppet Heap started building for The Muppets ) .

 

So yeah , Jim Henson Era only ! http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Christmas_Productions

 

With the acceptation of Muppet Christmas Carol and It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie.

 

Letters To Santa I didn’t really care for. The only time Elmo was funny was in the 1980s and off screen.

But still , if I had to choose , any of these are better than The Happytime Murders !

 

https://www.facebook.com/officialericcrooks/photos/a.702542416513146/1762360653864645/?type=3&theater

 

 

One more thing , That Birth of Jesus Christ Thing at the end of that John Denver special and the kids in the crowd … UGH !

It’s like Season 12 of Sesame Street , one of those “ Star Wars Holiday Special “ downhill sell out moments within the history that thankfully only fans know about.

 

Kind of like this one !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjRDTz-cEyk&list=PLa8bHoSo5eDKtbZ2Ha2dkrLqYHK-AHVpm&index=234

 

OK , the commercial is hilarious featuring The Muppet Show newsman and The Muppets were total sell outs of meat from the 1950s and 1960s but still , it makes me cringe because Jim Henson fought hard for adult puppetry and when Muppets Take Manhattan didn’t do so well , Jim started to sell out just so Henson Associates didn’t crash as a business.

That’s why Jim Henson wanted to sell to Disney , to go back to being an artist and get away from business duties.

He’s innocent. Now Eisner , don’t get me started about that slimeball scum of the earth !

 

 

( 3. Spitting Image

 

All I can say is this !

 

FREAKIN WATCH IT , NOOOOW !

 

Probably the funniest Christmas Specials I’ve ever seen that isn’t made by Henson !

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6srHtaqwS0w

The rare unreleased 1987 special

( THE GLORY YEARS )

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gVff2XLrLU

( The other great one just before all the good people left the show )

( lol John Sessions )

 

OH WHAT THE HELL !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOEsjRGK_ck

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryWVRS4aehM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3wuGjxRbl0

 

 

( 4. Ed Edd N Eddy’s Jingle Jingle Jangle

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x18up9a

My favorite parts are Rolf’s wacky song and that fun fact scene where Nazz has a nipple slip ! SERIOUSLY ! THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT ! They pulled a Miley Cyrus !

 

 

( 5. The Beavis & Butt-head Christmas Special

 

Probably the best episode ever made and the reason why I say this is because of the “ It’s A Wonderful Life “ parody. And well that’s not much of a reason so I’ll explain why it’s the best episode of Beavis & Butt-head ever made. It revealed a secret that only fans of Beavis & Butt-head know about.

 

BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD ARE NOT THE SAME CHARACTER !

 

Beavis is actually innocent , smarter , and the only reason why he’s friends with Butt-head in the first place is because it’s really Butt-head who’s the dim-witted sociopath.

 

Just showing Beavis in the soup kitchen helping Stewart really shows , as well as the angel picking Butt-head instead of both Beavis & Butt-head is a give a way to the secret that the show did have that character development.

 

One of the last episodes also highlighted this a little bit too. https://beavisandbutthead.fandom.com/wiki/The_Miracle_That_Is_Beavis

 

But it’s very subtle . Just like how Jane Lane is revealed to be a Lesbian in the Daria TV movie “ Is it fall yet .“ YES I LOVE JANE LANE ! <3

 

( 6. Ernest Saves Christmas

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Saves_Christmas

 

Yes I am a fan of the Ernest Movies. Also I thought The Simpsons satire on Ernest was one of the BEST GAGS in Simpsons history !

 

“ Ernest Goes Somewhere Cheap ! “

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTOri5ytDFA

 

They ripped the films to shreds ! lol

 

THAT fellow readers is A GREAT EXAMPLE OF GREAT COMEDY WRITING AND SATIRE WRITING ! TAKE NOTES CLASS !

 

And what do you know , it’s 11:11pm as I write this and I got Selsa all over my right arm ! Lol

 

Anyway , I just love free spirited characters like Ernest. This full grown adult with a childlike heart of gold is just something that all FP personality types ( MBTI ) need to see more of , your not alone ! :) We can all be Ernest sometimes , which isn’t always a bad thing. ;)

 

( 7 . Home Alone

 

Great movie. The second one is nothing more but the same story but tweaked with Trump’s stupid cameo.

 

And yes I parodied Home Alone with Con & Spy Rotten “ Yeah Yeah Exactly Man ! “

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnIpKAPSWDQ

 

And there’s behind the scenes and a blooper reel that goes with it too ! ;)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJ5UpnS5OsA

 

Also a great friend of mine gave me a digital code to get the movie on iTunes . :)

 

But seriously the movie is over talked about.

 

But I will say this , I am a fan of John Hughes . ( OK I admit it , SUSAN WATTS !!!! ) I LOVE WATTS !

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvBjHnx0B7E

 

AND IF MY TWIN FLAME IS READING THIS ! YES WE ARE GOING TO BE WATCHING “ SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL “ for WATTS ! AND YOU STILL NEED TO TAKE ME OUT TO SEE MY FAVORITE MUSICALS ;) <3 .

 

And yes I did to a parody too !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FhBeGS6vY8

Watts comes out of the closet !

 

( The animated cameo of my Twin Flame was edited out until further notice )

 

 

( 8 . HARLEY QUINN !

Oh yeah my Twin Flame is probably reading this ! She’s a Batman fan and she knows just how much of a classic Harley Quinn fan I am ! <3

 

JUST WATCH THE WHOLE THING NOW !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOQYu3ZazBo

 

https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-season/batman-the-animated-series-vol-4/id283990114

 

The episode is called Holiday Knights !

 

( I do have all the Harley episodes only iTunes and Amazon Instant Video Accounts :P )

 

Also I dressed as Harley Quinn cosplay and hosted a Harley Quinn fan panel at Rhode Island Comic Con in 2017 !

 

( 9. SOUTH PARK

 

They have hilarious Christmas specials !

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14mPAZkJvd4

 

Just go watch them and maybe Mr Hankey will pop out of your Toilet !

 

( FUN FACT : Mr. Hankey was one of the first South Park episodes I seen as a kid back in the late 1990s. Perhaps it was 1998 exactly ! Lol I had to sneak downstairs when my mother was sleeping however. Lol )

 

ONE QUICK NOTE : If Trey Parker and Matt Stone are reading this ! BRING BACK MISSES GARRISON AS A LESBIAN ! I need a fictional role model that I can relate to… Oh never mind , Garrison is Trump now right ? Right wing ? Well , when Garrison was MTF , she was suddenly a likable character ! No thanks to Mr Hat. UGH , I so want a Mr Slave action figure . Lol Great character , too bad GLAAD didn’t think so. He’s such a positive pro-LGBTQ+ character !
