ON FUN ~ Looky What He Can Do...



So in case you weren't aware, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer will be on TV tonight at 8PM on CBS. And we would be very bad Bumbles indeed if we didn't remind you to tune in to see our namesake. To get you in the spirit, here are a few of our favorite lines - which we will be saying right along with the show. You do know who said each line, right? If not - you need to tune in or set your DVR and get reacquainted with all these misfits...

  • "How can I eat? That silly elf song is driving me crazy." (us too, us too)

  • "I'm cute! I'm CUTE!" (he really is)

  • "But that's what makes it so grand." (sadly, no one says grand anymore)

  • "Well, sir, some day, I'd like to be... a dentist." (glad someone wants to do it)

  • "And then...IT HIT!" (brrrr)

  • "No! This is man's work." (it really is a bit of a sexist special)

  • "A toy is never truly happy until it is loved by a child." (I vouch for that)

  • "Didn't I ever tell you about Bumbles? Bumbles bounce!" (it's true!)

    My favourite Christmas movie is on this weekend. Sadly I will be missing your show tonight. But if you get a change to watch "White Christmas" with Danny Kaye, Bing Crosby, and June Allison .... that one makes my humbug heart melt.

    I've seen that show over and over but I missed this line:

    "Didn't I ever tell you about Bumbles? Bumbles bounce!"

    I have to say I always hated Rudolph's voice because

    1. it sounds like he has a cold -- stuffed up nose, and

    2. he speaks. In a. Halting. Way. That bugs. The living. Shet out of me.

    But it is a classic and I do like the snowman who slides through the snow. Remember the Norelco commercial?

    I know who says all those lines and I have a namesake daughter to prove it! :)

    wow, the panda picture is cute, and all these create a lively image in people's mind, it makes me feel active and alive.

    Thank you for the magic done to your visitors.

    Aw...I just melted into a puddle. I love this show. The four of us will be watching tonight, and honoring the Bumble.

    I have it on DVD and the kids have already watched it about 10 times. I'm sure I haven't been paying close enough attention but I'll see if I know a few

    How can I eat?---Santa
    I'd like to be a dentist---that one elf that wants to be a dentist
    Then it hit--the narrating Snowman
    Bumbles Bounce---Cornelius
    A love the line, A toy is never truly loved---I can see the toys sitting around the fire on misfit island, but I just can't remember who said it. I want to say the Jack in the box.

    have a happy time viewing the bumble tonight

    Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer is my SIL all time favorite. She has tried to win me over over the years, not with total success. ;-)

    I have been watching Rudolph since I was a tiny tot - and I am 45 years old now! I watch it every year. Thanks for the reminder!

    Susan said...

    You can bet your booties I'll be tuning in!! Gotta see the Bumbles! And I'll be thinking of Molly and Andy when I do!

    I agree with LJ on "White Christmas". It's probably my favorite grown-up Christmas movie. Love those songs. One little point of disagreement though, the ladies are Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen.

    "Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters........
    Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister,
    And lord help the sister who comes between me and my man!"

    Talk about sexism! Whooeee!

    Love these old shows! I'm glad we were blissfully unaware how un PC some of them were back in the day :-)

    Dang...I forgot...For some reason I had it in my head it was on Wednesday, not Tuesday.

    I love the Bumble monster.

    I guess I'm going to have to watch since I don't know the quotes!

    I have loved this movie since I was a child. I have them on VHS and DVD. My family grumbles because I make them watch a movie just about every night in December.

    LJ Ducharme said...

    I stand corrected by Susan. AND she's very right. Even as I wrote June Allison I didn't think it was right. Rosemary Clooney!! How could I forget Rosemary Clooney? And Vera Ellen - Hollywoods woman with the smallest waist.

    But I digress.

    NOOO I MISSED IT.

    I was about to come and post to see if you'd seen since clearly you appreciate Rudolph.

    The part where Donner goes, "This is Man's Work" is hilarious. It's the way that Burl Ives delivers it in the narration.

    Don't you just love, "What's the matter, Fireball?" "G-g-g-g-get away from me!"

    !! I love it!!
    I love the Dentist quote <3

    I caught your show last night. The husband made me do it. Now that I know you - I will never be able to look at that Christmas special the same way again. My ear couldn't help but pick up the word "Bumbles", and think of you.

    Adelle Laudan said...

    I LOVE that guy! LOL

    Kathleen said...

    This is one of my favorites from childhood. And now I have it on DVD. My son and I watch it every year...it's a classic!

    ds said...

    We watched it!!! Wouldn't have missed it. Love Burl Ives, the Island of Misfit Toys, "I'm CUUUTE!" the Humble Bumble... "Bumbles bounce!" Yes, and in this case, they rock!!

    I was at the Burlington Mall this past Sunday and there was a TV near Macy's with couches and chairs...and they were playing this!
