Balladeer’s Blog’s 2017 Christmas Carol-A-Thon resumes with this look at one of the WEIRDEST and most pointless renditions of Ebenezer Scrooge outside of Dickens Slash Fiction.
SCROOGE LOOSE (1957) – Scrooge Loose is an 8 minute long Gumby stop-motion animation treat from 1957.
Gumby and his equine pal Pokey spot Ebenezer Scrooge escaping from the book A Christmas Carol and set off in pursuit. The pair are posing as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson just to make even less sense. What, no Jack the Ripper?
Scrooge, who says “Humbug” as frequenly as the Hulk says “Hulk will smash” bulldozes some children’s toys and replaces other toys with rocks before Gumby/Sherlock lassoes him and bags him in a sack Santa mistakes for his bag of toys and rides off with.
