Santa Claus is on the dole

Following on from my earlier Santa related post I couldn't resist checking Youtube to see if they had the old Spitting Image song Santa Claus is on the dole... and they do, enjoy!

I don't really wish Santa ill, honest!

Those kind of puppets scare the crap out of me! :O

They look like the ones used in Genesis' "Land Of Confusion" video.

It could well be the same makers. Spitting Image was very popular in its time (84 to about 93 They did a lot of work for other people too.

Poor Santa. But I cannot wait for a Rudolf steak! The tune is catchy too.

In Australia we had Rubbery Figures round the same years - probably an offshoot of spitting image.

I wouldnt be surprised. The Spitting Image idea did catch on so I understand
