Hardrock, Coco, and Joe – a Christmas classic

This vintage Christmas video is one my family enjoys watching during the Christmas season. It is, or was, aired during a show remembering the great children’s television shows that were broadcast in the Chicagoland area on WGN channel 9. The show is called Bozo, Gar, and Ray. The show features clips from the Bozo the Clown, Garfield Goose, and Ray Rainer shows. During the show three Christmas videos are shown: Frosty the Snowman, Suzy Snowflake, and Hardrock and Coco and Joe.

We enjoy Hardrock and Coco and Joe. It is a cute stop motion animation video that plays while the song about the three dwarfs is sung. I think we really like the song and the video is an added bonus. Gene Autry recorded a version of the song, but I think this version is better. The only problem I have with the video is that Santa looks a little scary. If you don’t look at Santa too closely you will find it truly is a Christmas gem.

    I remember waiting every year to see this! It’s one of my absolute favorites and last season I showed it to my grandkids. “Susie Snowflake” was another one I would come running to see.
