Facts:
  • From the 1970 Rankin/Bass Christmas special, "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town." (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking out the door

    You never will get where you’re going
    If you never get up on your feet
    Come on, there’s a good tail wind blowing
    A fast walking man is hard to beat

    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking out the door

    If you want to change your direction
    If your time of life is at hand
    Well don’t be the rule; be the exception
    A good way to start is to stand

    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking out the door

    If I want to change the reflection
    I see in the mirror each morn
    You mean that it's just my election
    To vote for a chance to be reborn

    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking out the door

    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
    Put one foot in front of the other
    And soon you’ll be walking out the door
    (Stavro Arrgolus)

    In "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" (Rankin/Bass, 1970), the 'young Santa' puppet was a dead ringer for Glen Campbell (or so I thought at the time). Presumably, to the Japanese puppetmakers, the character had to look Western to be Santa.

    But who was young and Western looking that they could use as a model? David Bowie? I don't think so. Not wholesome enough. Or at all. At the time, Campbell was wildly popular - or as popular as you could be singing country music and generally not looking like a damn hippie.

    They saw his picture in a magazine somewhere, thought that this was the 'wholesome Westerner' they sought and bang, Glen Campbell was Santa Claus. Ridiculous. This show and its musical score blow away the homogenized PC crap they show kids today, though.
