Merry Media Memories - December 4
It seems like everything on television these days is tied to a network. Just on the broadcast side we have ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, The WB, and UPN. But there was a time when a local television station was just that. No promotion of prime-time lineups or synergy with movie stars. It was simple programming to meet the needs of those in the local community.

Today's Merry Media Memories song, Suzy Snowflake, comes from this era. Here in Chicago, a trio of animated songs were shown every Christmas morning on WGN. Starting in 1953, they were featured on The Bozo Show and have in a small way, become part of the holiday television tradition here in the Windy City. The shorts are still played around Christmas time on WGN's morning news programs.

Historically considered to be created by a Chicago-based film house called Centaur Productions, "Suzy Snowflake" doesn't have much of a plot. Basically this stop-motion animated angel/fairy flies around with lots of other snowflakes. She makes snowmen and taps on windows. Frankly, it doesn't make much sense unless you see it visually. Luckily, someone has converted it to streaming video and it can be viewed by clicking here (RealMedia format).

The audio on this song is very old, thus it's somewhat hard to hear. You can follow along with the lyrics below:
Quote:
I'm coming...

Here comes Suzy Snowflake
Dressed in her snow white gown
Tap, tap, tapping on your window pane
To tell you she's in town

Here comes Suzy Snowflake
Soon you will hear her say
"Come on everyone and play with me
I haven't long to stay"

If you want to make a snowman
I'll help you make one
One, Two, Three...
If you want to take a sleigh ride
The ride's on me

Here comes Suzy Snowflake
Look at her tumbling down
Bringing joy to every girl and boy
Suzy's come to town

I personally really did not care for this one. And I can tell by the rating that other people didn't either. Maybe some people really like it, it is just not my cub of tea.
