Separated at Birth?

I was watching "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" the other night, and I realized something.

Jessica is really hot.

No, I'm kidding. I actually noticed that when I was about 8. When she lets her hair down during that psychedelic fountain song....yikes. Flat blue eyes be damned, she's a fine looking woman. It's too bad she let herself go.

What I realized the other night is why the "good" winter warlock bugs me. It's because he reminds me of the most annoying human* comedian on earth:





That's freaky, right?


* carrot top, gilbert gottfried and emo phillips are not human as far as I can tell.

    You tease us by describing a hot babe and then show us some pointy nosed montsers. I want my money back! Oh wait, nevermind.

    Oh yeah! Santa married a hottie. Here's a picture of the voice of Jessica.

    Actually, the Winter Warlock was actor Richard Harris in bad makeup.

    He was having trouble finding work back then. At least it prepared him for his appearances in Harry Potter to give him some good paychecks before his death.

  3. Damn, I never noticed that before. Thanks for ruining a beloved holiday tradition! Next you'll tell me the Grinch looks like Dick Cheney.

  4. Love the comparison. And yeah, he does look like a pre-Harry Potter Richard Harris!

  5. Hahaha...I love it that you actually watched that show. I can't. Because the animation seriously freaks me out.

    p.s. I love the blue template. Much easier on me ole eyes.

  6. They're pretty much identical!

    Also- the blue is SOOOOOO much better! Never go back to black!

  7. Ooo very bizzare! Man...that is one of my favorites...

  8. I'm so with you about Carrot Top being inhuman, don't know who the Emo guy is but, since I am anti that whole emo look anyway (come to think of it, the Winter Warlock is sort of Emo), I'm with you on that as well.

    You know who's hot (and I don't typically go for that whole beastiality thing) is Clarice, Rudolph's reindeer girlfriend. She loved him nose and all and even when he inadvertently got her kidnapped by the Abominable Snowman.

    Wow, I have put way too much thought into this. I obviously need to get out more.

    Leave the warlock alone he made the reindeer fly and the christmas trees light up. Pointy nose could be intersting but I won't go there. Funny blog JV....what would we do without you to show us these things. Loved it.

  10. What a gift it must be to be so observant. That's an uncanny resemblance.

    ReplyDelete
  11. That is FREAKY!? I wonder if that actor himself has made that connection and if that has in any way subconsciously effected his career!? Hmmm? Something to think about... maybe someone should point this out to him!? It may explain some things... that's all I'm sayin'!?

    It's not just freaky -- it's upsetting. I may never recover. Never ever.

  13. Marcel from season 2 ( I think) Top Chef looks a lot like the Heat Miser. :)

    Well he's another "Dick" any way.

    What's really scary is that you've thought about this comedian often enough to recognize the resemblance between the two... I thought I had blocked him out of my consciousness... damn you...

  15. Actually, I don't bother reading what you've written anymore, I just come for the blue background.

  16. Kristina, I'm a big Scrubs fan, and he's Mr. Corman the hypochondriac. He's so annoying I want to punch him.

    Also, why does the warlock have to lose his powers just because he turns nice? That's not fair if you ask me.

    Badger, no, the grinch looks like the singer from the Fine Young Cannibals..

    Lauren, you are right. You do need to get out more. :)

    Don, you're better off.

    JV, I just remember RK from Spin City, and since I couldn't really stand any of the cast members, I didn't watch if I could help it... he was so annoying then I wanted to punch him.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Isn't that guy's name Richard Kind? And thanks for pointing that out, JV...the holiday classic will never be the same! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  19. JV, I don't know what happened to my comment but I was saying that the women who was the voice of Jessica died a few years ago. When she was young she wasn't bad looking, not Jessica Simpson but not a fido either.

    I don't know if Richard Kind is the MOST annoying...I place my bet on Gilbert Gottfreid. Then again, you MAY be able to lump Gilbert in with Carrot Top and the Emo guy..

    ReplyDelete
  21. Holy crap.

    And the acid fountain song/scene is/was always the time I would go for a snack.

    ReplyDelete
  22. that is too funny.



    *I loved when he was a reoccurring patient on the TV show Scrubs*

    ReplyDelete
  23. Gilbert Gottfried gets my vote for most annoying!

    Uncanny resemblance to RK... I won't be watching that one this year, thanks. I can hear his voice in my head just by looking at the photo and that's more than I needed. Ugh.

    *turns on Nightmare Before Christmas*

    ReplyDelete
  24. Nice observation! Made me laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  25. LMAO...that is so funny! I will never be able to watch that Christmas classic the same way again.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I do not know this annoying comic? But what about Carlos Mencia? What about Sarah Silverman? What about ROBIN WILLIAMS!? Surely he trumps them all.

    Also looks like the voice of hottie Jessica has gotten some work done. Just sayin'.

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOL now where's a pic of her doing that song. Come on must be one somewhere here. hehe

  28. you know, I looked everywhere with ever search criteria I could think of, and I still came up empty.

    Heat Miser obviously seems to have subconsciously influenced Brad Bird's design of Syndrome in The Incredibles... that one haunted me for a week before I worked it out.

    Best RK animation, you ask? (I know you did! Just now!) He voiced the second banana evil grasshopper in A Bug's Life, playing off of Kevin Spacey. Though one of PIXAR's lesser efforts, the animators manage to get BOTH grasshopper characters to adopt the mannerisms of Spacey and Kind.

    Watch it again, if you dare!

    P.S. A pair of Andy's, Dick and Kaufmann, beat RK any day in the annoying category. I understand they are/were only theoretically comedians, but there you have it.

  30. Ew!

    Haven't seen it. Actually, I haven't seen most Christmas movies. I should really queue some up in Netflix.

  31. Yikes...you are so right...Now I'll have bad dreams.....

  32. That is scary! Oh, and why did they feel the need to add a penguin to this show? We're a bunch of idiot executives sitting around the board room saying "It's good, but it would be perfect if you add a lost penguin to it". This is probably why the writers guild is on strike...

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love these old holiday "cartoons"! Especially the one with the Burghermiser, Miserburgher. And the Heat and Snow Miser too! They kick that piece of crap Charlie Brown Christmas in the ass!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I know! The penguin?? WTF.

  35. here you are for a picture: not the best but.... http://deadpuppy.darkgraysheep.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/12/jessica.jpg

  36. Yeah, that's the only one I saw too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. WOW...you are absolutely right!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh my gosh, she is so hot. Now I need to go find a picture. And some kleenex.

    Kidding!

    Maybe.

  39. Did you know that Jessica Claus has her own myspace page??

  40. I haven't seen that movie in God knows how long, and so though I am a mere straight woman, I'd still like to see what this "hot Jessica" looks like. I could google it, but I'm too lazy to do so.

    Also, the resemblance is scary.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wait - you dont like Emo Phillips?!?

    He's actually my fave comic ever.

    He lost the pageboy coiff if that matters

    Rock On Anyway,

  42. Harris -- it's the voice and delivery I can't take for more than two minutes.

    Sorry man. I'm more of a Demetri Martin kinda guy.
