When reading out the order from Captain Ffing-Burke, Sgt Ball gives the date as Friday, 24 December 1917. However, in 1917, 24 December was actually a Monday. See more »

Crazy, Zany 70's TV Special
17 November 2006 | by (Long Island, New york) – See all my reviews

The holidays are examined from quite a different approach, a crazy comedic approach. Sid James is quite funny as Santa. I like the flashbacks to other era's, the soldier sketch is the best. Kenneth Connor does a good job playing the sort of "dirty old man" store manager. These specials are hard to find in the US. I have only been able to locate this special and Carry on Stuffing (1972) I would like to get a copy of Carry on Christmas (1969) and Carry on Again Christmas (1970). Carry on Christmas (1973) follows the same approach as Stuffing, but I tend to prefer Carry on Stuffing (1972) mainly for Kenneth Connors portray as the war general. Hopefully these will be released as a set in the US, like some of the films were earlier this year.
