As I rehearse our holiday show’s songs, I remember being a boy growing up in the late 60’s and watching the Christmas specials on TeeVee. I love the Rankin/Bass produced shows the most, with “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” being my favorite. The puppets were great, the music catchy, and the show has a Bumble in it!
Giving this a bit of thought, it seems to me that watching “Rudolph” in the late 60’s may have been the foundation for my interest in strange creatures, oh and puppets too!
Here’s a clip of Bumble to enjoy:

Who would have guessed that 40+ years later, that my puppet show’s lead characters would be a Sasquatch (or Abominable Snowman) and a Sea Serpent?
