Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Minnesota Kid Vid

Here’s the classic Night Before Christmas performed by Axel with Carman the Nurse.   This was posted by someone on You Tube and I’m sharing it here for Christmas.   Over on the Lunch with Casey website I’ve posted Casey singing Walking in my Winter Underwear.

Just a short note on the goings on at Minnesota Kid Vid.   I still have tons of material to post and no time to post it.  Hopefully I will get more time to do so in 2012.

I’m also working on a new documentary that will be tentatively titled “Casey Jones, Joe the Cook, and J.P. Patches – the early Channel 11 Kid’s Shows”.     It will feature interviews with Chris Wedes (Joe the Cook and others), as well as Daryl Laub (the original J.P. Patches and later T.N.Tatters) and Al DeRusha (WTCN Director).   This will feature rare clips from the early days at Channel 11.   I’ve got the only known clip of Daryl Laub as J.P.Patches, footage of Roger Awsumb in his Roo Roo the Kangaroo costume with Chris Wedes as Joe the Cook, plus other rare footage and photos.   I hope to have this ready by springtime.

We lost the great Dave Lee in November.  I posted an obituary over on the Lunch With Casey website.   Pete the Penguin and Omar the Alligator are as much a part of our childhood as Axel and Casey.    He will be missed by the memories will remain.

I’m also going to switch the theme of the site over to a layout similar to the Lunch With Casey website.   Look for that soon.

Thanks for visiting and keeping the memories alive.
