Ralphie Phillips vs. Ralphie Parker: Is it real or is it Memorex?
27 December 2006 | by (London, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Perhaps it's just me and I wouldn't want to point fingers, but does anyone notice a remarkable resemblance between Ralphie Phillips and his daydreams in the old WB cartoons, and the Jean Shepherd character, Ralphie Parker, in the 1983 Bob Clark holiday pic, A Christmas Story? Seems to me that the daydream sequences in A Christmas Story may have been suggested or inspired by the cartoon... or was Chuck Jones influenced by Shepherd's writing? What came first?

I was glad to see that the old cartoons had not been lost to the mists of time: I'd almost started to believe that I had concocted these cartoons and amalgamated them with the daydream aspects of Christmas Story.
