Flopcast 607: This Peppermint Hangover

It's a typical holiday episode, in that we're discussing Julia Child, Pop Rocks, and Newsies. But there are some vaguely holiday-themed subjects too, including Kornflake's newfound candy cane addiction, Kevin's recent guest appearance on Gleaming the Tube (discussing old Christmas specials!), and a round or two of the Figgy Pudding Pages. We're keeping it super-short this week and passing the savings on to you. Go do something festive.

Show Notes

Don't miss a very festive episode of Gleaming the Tube, with Kevin doing what he does best!

Bebe Neuwirth, who closes out the year by turning 65, appears in Julia, but not in the title role. To be fair, Bebe is a petite 5'4" and Julia was over 6 feet tall!

Candy Cane Pop Rocks: Kornflake's perfect food?

Believe it or not, in this photo from Newsies, Max Casella (Vinnie in Doogie Howser), is 24 and Christian Bale a mere 17! We'll just call that a Christmas miracle.
