Sanjun gives us Spider-Man and Mary Jane on Christmas night.

FELIZ NA-BEE-BLAH



"The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, and I hope everything on my list will be there".

There's lots of Christmas Specials but we all know Pee-Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special is the best.  Featuring the regular characters from the Playhouse, as well as loads of guest stars, Pee-wee teaches Little Richard how to ice skate, forces Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello to make Christmas cards, ignores a phone call from Dinah Shore, tells Whoopie Goldberg she can't be on the Special, goes for a sleigh ride with Magic Johnson and even meets Santa Claus.  Plus, there's Charo and lots of fruit cakes!  Now that's a Christmas Special!

HAPPY TRAILS, ROY ROGERS



Roy Rogers passed away on July 6, 1998 but I, for one, will never for get the ever-smiling cowboy that made me want to ride a horse and save the day.  Roy Rogers was more than a cowboy, he was a hero and an example to all young boys of what it means to be a man.

Roy Rogers was a hero on screen and in print.  Dell Comics created a comic book simply titled, Roy Rogers, starting in January 1948. August 1955.  The title changed to Roy Rogers and Trigger in August 1955.  The comic book finally rode off into the sunset in 1961.

PEZ-TASTIC!


As Roy Rogers Month winds down, it's only appropriate we feature Sheriff Pez Pal.  From 1977, this tin star dispenser sells for around $200.00 if you can find him.

ELTON JOHN SINGS "ROY ROGERS"



Roy Rogers was a hero to kids around the world, including one young Elton John.  From his 1977 concert in Wembley Empire Pool, Sir Elton sings "Roy Rogers" from his 1973 album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
 
Sometimes you dream, sometimes it seems
There's nothing there at all
You just seem older than yesterday
And you're waiting for tomorrow to call

You draw to the curtain and one thing's for certain
You're cozy in your little room
The carpet's all paid for, God bless the TV
Let's go shoot a hole in the moon

And Roy Rogers is riding tonight
Returning to our silver screens
Comic book characters never grow old
Evergreen heroes whose stories were told
Oh the great sequin cowboy who sings of the plains
Of roundups and rustlers and home on the range
Turn on the T.V., shut out the lights
Roy Rogers is riding tonight

Nine o'clock mornings, five o'clock evenings
I'd liven the pace if I could
Oh I'd rather have a ham in my sandwich than cheese
But complaining wouldn't do any good

Lay back in my armchair, close eyes and think clear
I can hear hoofbeats ahead
Roy and Trigger have just hit the hilltop
While the wife and the kids are in bed

CORMAN'S WORLD



I recently read Roger Corman's autobiography, How I Made A Hundred Movies In Hollywood And Never Lost A Dime, which is not only highly informative of how Hollywood works but is also a fun read.  A new documentary is coming out, Corman's World, and it looks fantastic.  You get Robert DeNiro, Ron Howard, Pam Grier, Tom Hanks and Peter Fonda reflecting on working for Roger Corman, all with footage from his infamous movies.

PORTRAIT OF A KING


The King of the Cowboys, that is.  We posted this back in June and it's still one of our favorite images of Roy Rogers.  Artwork by Robert Rodriguez.
