Pesadilla antes de Navidad

25 años de este cuento de navidad.

What’s this?

What’s this? What’s this?
There’s color everywhere
What’s this?
There’s white things in the air
What’s this?

I can’t believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, Jack, this isn’t fair
What’s this?
What’s this? What’s this?
There’s something very wrong
What’s this?
There are people singing songs
What’s this?

The streets are lined with
Little creatures laughing
Everybody seems so happy
Have I possibly gone daffy?

What is this?
What’s this?

There are children throwing snowballs
instead of throwing heads
They’re busy building toys
And absolutely no one’s dead
There’s frost on every window
I can’t believe my eyes
And in my bones I feel a warmth
That’s coming from inside
Oh, look
What’s this?

They’re hanging mistletoe, they kiss?
Why that looks so unique, inspired
They’re gathering around to hear a story
Roasting chestnuts on a fire
What’s this?
What’s this?

In here they’ve got a little tree, how queer
And who would ever think
And why?
They’re covering it with tiny little things
They’ve got electric lights on strings
And there’s a smile on everyone
So, now, correct me if I’m wrong

This looks like fun
This looks like fun

Oh, could it be I got my wish?
What’s this?
Oh my, what now?
The children are asleep
But look, there’s nothing underneath
No ghouls, no witches here to scream and scare them
Or ensnare them, only little cozy things
Secure inside their dreamland… *sigh*
What’s this?

The monsters are all missing
And the nightmares can’t be found
And in their place there seems to be
Good feeling all around
Instead of screams, I swear
I can hear music in the air
The smell of cakes and pies
Are absolutely everywhere
The sights, the sounds

They’re everywhere and all around
I’ve never felt so good before
This empty place inside of me is filling up
I simply cannot get enough
I want it, oh, I want it
Oh, I want it for my own
I’ve got to know
I’ve got to know
What is this place that I have found?
What is this?
Christmas Town, hmm…

Tod y Toby

Disney y 21st Century Fox 
«Tod and the Hound» es una película de 1981 (buen año) de la Disney, dirigida por Ted Berman, Richard Rich y Art Stevens.

Esta entrada no es por esta cinta, ni por la trama entre el zorro y el sabueso que no recuerdo, ni por su calidad según alguna crítica bastante baja.

Pero el título de la cinta, en horas bajas de la compañía, adelantaba la conversión del ratón en un sabueso para aliarse o comerse a quien se pusiera por delante, y por supuesto a la compañía del zorro.
