The Art of Michael Bedard

Everything eventually comes back into style, and truer words were never spoken when it comes to the Rankin Bass animated holiday specials that filled the airwaves of television in the 1970's. The pairing of Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass resulted in some of the best-loved specials on television, and now some of the most merchandised ones.In the last few years there have been toys and action figures made of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (by Playing Mantis), Here Comes Peter Cottontail (by Diamond Select Toys) and now The Year Without A Santa Claus. The license for Year is held by Warner Brothers, who has given the master merchandise license to the Musicland Group. The Musicland Group (who runs the Suncoast, Media Play and Sam Goody Stores) has further contracted this out to several toy companies to make toys and action figures. For plush toys, tree ornaments and a variety of miscellaneous items (like salt and pepper shakers and mugs) they have chosen NECA, and for action figures and pvc figurines they are working with Palisades Toys. In this case is was the licensor who approached Palisades to make these toys, and though they are different from the usual offerings of Palisades they are still done to the same standards.The basic story of The Year Without A Santa Claus is that Santa gets the flu, and he's also bummed out that no one seems to care about the spirit of Christmas. Instead of going to major retail headquarters to be convinced he decides to just take the day off and sleep in. But his elves take it upon themselves to help out Santa by going off in disguise to find holiday cheer, and they are accompanied by the littlest reindeer Vixen. Not being incredibly competent at anything but making toys, the elves get into trouble along the way and they need a little bailing out by Mrs. Claus.The most indelible aspect of the special is the introduction of the Miser Brothers - Heat Miser and Snow Miser. The two are polar opposites even though they share the same mother - Mother Nature. The elves try to convince the guys to swap territory and have Snow Miser let it snow in Southtown while Heat Miser gets to play in the North Pole. The two just don't get along and they can't agree until Mrs. Claus tells their mommy on them and she cracks the whip and makes them work together. What makes those two so memorable isn't their look, but their theme songs. The songs are so insidiously clever that they get inside your head and just will not leave, so much so it's a wonder they aren't cola jingles.Britain's liberal establishment can't get enough of those charming militants.
