YuleTube: now that's just creepy/weird

When you're watching holiday specials that are close to 40 years old, you'll find scenes that were perfectly fine Way Back Then but that now are weird, or even creepy.

Case in point, two scenes/songs from _Santa Claus Is Coming To Town_. Two scenes that are usually cut when the special is broadcast these days.

Scene Number One: Kris giving toys to the kids, to the tune of "If you sit on my lap today, a kiss a toy is the price you'll pay". It's a danged catchy song but ... there's a guy in the town square having kids sit on his lap and kiss him. Someone call the cops! (Song runs from 2:30 to 4:00, but stick around and you get the BurgerMeister MeisterBurger "toys!" freakout followed by yo-yo-lovefest).

Scene Number Two: Jessica's song "My World Is Beginning Today". Wow. I know this was the 60s, but there must have been a *lot* of psychedelics in use in by the special effects department. Kudos to Jessica for being able to take definite action after all that LSD. (Song runs from 1:20 to 3:30).
