A very merry Christmas
16 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Watching the Carry On Christmas show from Thames television in 1973 put me in mind of the Christmas specials in the past when in America folks like Bing Crosby, Perry Como and the like did Christmas. No Christmas carols in this show and the comedy sketches are not anything you would see on American television. Where was Mrs. Whitehouse?

Carry On regular Sid James hosts the show and its quite the romp. James is one raunchy department store Santa Claus, but after an encounter with a mother and an overdeveloped 13 year old girl on Santa's lap, he wishes nostalgically for a more traditional Christmas.

Like they had during the 17th century, during World War I, in caveman times before there was Christmas and in the days of Robin Hood when he made Marian. That's to give you some idea of Christmases past which turn out to be in the raunchy Carry On style.

Benny Hill couldn't have been more raunchy. Fun, but Bing Crosby wouldn't have had a Christmas special like this.
