I figured that after the classic Emmy-winning video this morning, I might as well make this a Burr Tillstrom Day and have a couple of holiday pieces from my faves Kukla, Fran and Ollie. Or as I prefer to more appropriately refer to them during the season as Kukla, Fran and Holly.
This first is Fran Allison singing an original song, "Christmas is a Time," written for their show It's a sweet song, done lovingly, though the song is not especially memorable. But of all the Kukla, Fran and Ollie Christmas songs available, it's the only one with video.
This, on the other hand, is a joyful medley of Christmas songs, sung by all the Kuklapolitans. It's only audio, released as part of a Christmas album, but it's a pleasure to hear all their enthusiasm. Mainly, though, I include it because it ends with their rousing "Deck the Halls" (with boughs of holly, hang the mistletoe for Ollie) -- made all the better for being accompanied by my fave Kuklapolitan, the unintelligble Cecil Bill and his "toi ta toi toi's."
(For the record, the "Dolores" referred to, who sings "Silent Night" is Ollie's little niece.)
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
