Episode 11 - Impressions of a Christmas Carol

It's Episode 11 and you know what that means...   nope, neither do we.

We revisit young Robin and she belts out what some would refer to as a wonderful Christmas song, but others would consider the ramblings of a madman.  Plus her little sister gives her interpretation of Jingle Bells.

This episode's version of A Christmas Carol is Rich Little's Christmas Carol, a TV special from 1978.  Rich Little is a famous impersonator and he plays all the characters in the story, each one as a different famous person including such greats as W C Fields, Jimmy Stewart, Humphrey Bogart and plenty more.

Then we get to learn a bit more about our US correspondent Scott Newman who tells us about his favourite Christmas things.

Do you want to lose weight?
Do you want to see the fat fall off?
Then follow the Spoon Licker diet!
Yes, this episode the Yule Lad we look at is Spoon Licker, he's spindle thin, and you could be too if you follow his brand new fad diet.

The recommendation is Jingle Jank, starring none other than our US correspondent Scott Newman.  It's a great new show that takes a look at some of the random Christmas songs that you never knew existed.
