You're totally reminding me of Sixteen Candles and spiky hairdos, dude.

This is awesome, but sadly too late for my annual Christmas mix. Maybe next year.

I'm with ColdChef. This is getting archived for next year. Hopefully I'll still be watching it a year from now.

My only complaint is that some parts get jumbled up with characters singing the lines somewhat delayed. I assume thats because the voice actors do multiple characters and they had to be recorded seperately.

Bing.
Crosby.

Thanks so much for posting this little slice of what I happen to think is one of the sharpest, wittiest shows on television. Go Team Venture!

Now if we could get Samson and The Monarch's two henchmen doing Silver Bells, we'd be all set.

(Dr. Girlfriend has to be one of the best characters ever!) : >

I want Dr. Girlfriend to join the Roches in singing "Winter Wonderland."

Also, that needed more Underbheit.

Remember, being out of your box is a privilege, not a right.

I just want to say that it's not too late to deck the halls with bowels of Venture.
