Excerpt (Sample)

This is a sample from the middle of the skit.

Rudolph: Hey you guys, what's going on?

Santa: Ho, Ho, Ho! Merry Christmas!

Frosty: Hi Santa. Hey Rudolph. We were just talking about the reason for the season.

Rudolph: The reason for the season?

Ginger: Yeah, see I found this sign. (holds up note)


Frosty: He thinks he's the reason for the season.

Ginger: And he thinks he's the reason.

Santa: I'm afraid you're both wrong.

Rudolph: Yeah, way off!

Frosty: Why's that?

Santa: Because everybody knows the real reason for the Christmas season is....

Rudolph & Santa: (at the same time) Me! (looking at each other, then speaking at the same time again) You?

Santa: Come on Rudolph, everybody knows I'm the reason we have Christmas. I'm the one who brings the children all their presents.

Rudolph: But without me you wouldn't be able to deliver all the presents. I pull the sleigh!

Santa: Of course you do, Rudolph, and I appreciate the job you do for me, but let's face it, without me there would be no presents to deliver.

Ginger: He's got you on that one, Rudolph.

Rudolph: But I'm the head reindeer and I'm known everywhere. Why, there's even a song about me and my red nose, so I've got to be important to Christmas.

Frosty: There's a song about me too!

Santa: Just one? Please, I've got dozens of songs written about me!

Ginger: Am I the only one without a song? I've got to get a better agent!
