Do you know that Christmastime commercial? It doesn't advertise any product, but it's a three minute musical story about :santa's elves named Hardrock, Coco and Joe. It's black and white claymation, probably made in the fifties, as my dad remembers it from when he was a kid.

They don't show it down here in Maryland, but I see it every year at my parents' house in west-central Pennsylvania. The local NBC affiliate plays it a lot between shows.

Does anybody (:usa or not) know what I'm talking about? If you've seen it, please share your location. Thanks! :happy

You can sing along here: http://www.toontracker.com/xmasra/xmasra.htm Scroll down to the third picture.

Ole olady olady I oh
That's Hardrock, and Coco, and Joe

Now listen my children and you shall hear
A story fantastic, a story so queer
It's all about Santa and his helpers three
There's Hardrock, and Coco, and Joe

Now Hardrock's the driver up there by his sleigh
Coco reads maps and he shows him the way
Though old Santa really has no need for Joe
But takes him cause he loves him so

Ole olady olady I ay
Donner and Blitzen away away
Ole olady olady I oh
I'm Hardrock, I'm Coco, I'm Joe

And Santa is busy with his heavy pack
He trusts his drivers and never looks back
Ole olady olady I oh
I'm Hardrock, I'm Coco, I'm Joe

Now go to bed early on this Christmas Eve
I've no way of knowing just what you'll recieve
But you'll hear their laughter that much I do know
Twill be Hardrock, and Coco, and Joe

The three little men only two feet high
Singing to Santa way up in the sky
Laughing and shouting as the sleigh bells ring
It's Hardrock, and Coco, and Joe

Ole olady olady I ay
Donner and Blitzen away away
Ole olady olady I oh
He's Hardrock, he's Coco, he's Joe

And Santa is busy with his heavy pack
He trusts his drivers and never looks back
Ole olady olady I oh
He's Hardrock, he's Coco, he's Joe

Ol' Santa will come in and set down his pack
And Hardrock will hold the reindeer till Santa comes back
If you hear a giggle as he turns to go
It's Coco, a snowball,...and Joe!

Ole olady olady I ay
Donner and Blitzen away away
Ole olady olady I oh
I'm Hardrock, I'm Coco, I'm Joe

And Santa is busy with his heavy pack
He trusts his drivers and never looks back
Ole olady olady I oh
I'm Hardrock, I'm Coco, I'm Joe
Ole olady olady I oh...

:stars I used to watch that on tv when I was a child it would come on (in the eighties) and I loved it...was classic at Christmastime. I wish they showed things like that still. I was in Illinois growing up when we saw it..live in MN now and have never seen it here.
:stars Thanks for bringing back a happy memory of childhood..those cute little elves.

:peace Heidi
