Two things I’ve noticed while watching TV all day

1. There’s a new production of “Annie” out — why does little orphan Annie always have to have a red curly hair helmet wig? It looks bizarre. Why can’t get a girl with real red curly hair, or at least dye the girl’s hair red? In the original stage production with Andrea McArdle, they used her real hair.
I know way too much about Annie, don’t I?
2. I think “Rudolph’s Shiny New Year” is the most bizarre Holiday special ever, surpassing even the Heat Miser and Freeze Miser in “The Year Without a Santa Claus” which was another Rankin-Bass sequel they put together after the success of Rudolph, but probably shouldn’t have.
I guess the premise of the story makes sense if you read the synopsis on Wikipedia (sort of) but if you’re watching it without the sound on like I am now, seeing Rudolph traipsing around with a caveman, a knight and Ben Franklin and a camel with a clock for a hump – it’s hard to see how that all fits together.

I guess I’m not the only one who thinks it’s bizarre
