No Fair!

I didn't know about this until today, but it turns out that NBC is rrunning the remake of the Rankin-Bass Christmas classic "The Year without A Santa Claus" this Monday. You know the one with the Heat Miser and the Snow Miser? And the whole show was done with stop motion animation? Well this time, it's live action. With Harvey Firestein as the Heat Miser and Michael McKeon as the Snow Miser. This is wrong at least nine ways to Sunday. Don't believe me? Well, here's a clip...

For those of you who remember them properly, here's the original version of The Heat Miser's song...

And here's the original Snow Miser's version.

You wanna know who's on the naughty list? NBC if they screw this up.
