YuleTube: Rankin-Bass meets Scorsese

On the weekend, we get a little different. From MAD-TV many years ago, it's a Rankin-Bass/Scorsese mashup. In my opinion, the first part "Raging Rudolph" is better than the second part "Reinfather" because it's Rankin-Bass with Scorsese touches, while the second is Scorsese with Rankin-Bass characters.

There are so many good lines in the first one:
"You'll never be in Santa's gang. Never!"
"I'm Hermy the Drill."
"Does my nose amuse you?"

And, as a note, this one is probably not for the kids due to the fake blood and stop-motion violence.
