THE ADVENTURES OF UNCLE MISTLETOE - Aunt Judy - "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah - The Kindness Club Song" (1949)
Tonight the Dungeon Halloween Countdown continues with an episode from the TV series "The Uncle Mistletoe Show! Uncle Mistletoe was a character introduced to the world in 1946 by the Chicago department store Marshall Field's to compete with Montgomery Ward's Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer! The popular Uncle Mistletoe Show aired 3 times a week for four seasons on TV from 1948 to 1952! So what does a Christmas character have to do with Halloween? Well, it's kind of like "Nightmare Before Christmas" in reverse, as much as some people would like it, it can't be Christmas all year long!! Marshall Field's was bought and converted to Macy's in 2006!
What we have here tonight was a 1949 episode that aired on the 25th of October!
Uncle Mistletoe's co-hostess on only this one show was Aunt Judy played by the cute as the dickens actress Jennifer Holt at the end of her acting career! Jennifer was in a slew of western movies in the 1940's like "Renegades Of The Rio Grande" and "Buffalo Bill Rides Again!"
Uncle Mistletoe was a little on the slow side, I can't imagine how tough it would be to watch one of these episodes without the assistance of Aunt Judy! She was the highlight of this whole show!
Uncle Mistletoe and Aunt Judy spin a tale about his imp friends who want to carve the town's biggest jack-o-lantern, and one little guy falls inside and can't get out!
This is what it looks like from the inside of a jack-o-lantern!
