Happy December to one and all! This week on the podcast, we present to you a Stocking Stuffer we recorded back in August. J5 went digging around the Lost Media Wiki and turned up Cranberry Christmas! This is an animated special sponsored and produced by the Ocean Spray cranberry juice company, featuring songs and narration from the one and only Barry Manilow! To our knowledge it has aired only once, and as this podcast bears out, there is probably a very good reason why.
This episode takes a weird turn into pitching Christmas specials sponsored by other corporate entities, and whether or not Cranberry Christmas could have stood to be a little bit more craven in its ambitions. Also in this episode, Joe and J5 read a listener email and wish Santa would bring them more. Enjoy!
