I wonder whether the choice of the name "Cornelius" was an accident? And isn't Herbie, really Herbert, the guy in the Lolita movie?
I never could stomach that dental/yeti/misfit christmas movie. The first time I saw it (i think i was still a kid) it flew in the face of what I knew about Christmas. I thought the same thing when I saw the first Peanut's Christmas TV show. At first you're charmed but you will feel awful later.
Give me Alistar Sim in the "Christmas Carol" - loosely based on Dicken's book. But this 1951 classic is full of spirit not found in the book. It really outdoes the book.
