CSM 12: A Very Venture Christmas

It's December, and only three days until Christmas! I've decided to do a follow up to my surprisingly popular Halloween Movie Madness. Every night through Christmas Eve, I will be watching a different Christmas movie or special and then rambling on about them, sometimes even being coherent!

A Very Venture Christmas

Venture Bros. Christmas With the Moppets

This one is going to be a bit different than the norm.  Yes, I'm watching A Very Venture Christmas tonight, but even though there has only been one Venture Bros. Christmas special, there have also been eight Christmas songs released over the years and they are glorious.

So, instead of talking about Rusty's natural gas fueled Christmas nightmare, wherein he is attacked by the Krampus (and by attacked, I mean dry humped), I present to you all eight of the Venture Bros. Christmas singles.  Some of these may or may not include some NSFW language.

Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth

The first Christmas single was released in 2004.  It was Dr. Girlfriend and The Monarch singing as Bing Crosby and David Bowie.

Hard Candy Christmas

2005 brought us The Monarch's rendition of Dolly Parton's Hard Candy Christmas from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

Venture Aid 2006

This single featured all of the recurring characters that were on the show at the time singing Do They Know It's Christmas

Fairytale of New York

This was the single from 2007.  It's Dr. Girlfriend and THe Monarch singing Fairytale of New York by The Pogues.

Wonderful Christmastime

21 and 24 recorded this version of the classic Wonderful Christmastime.  It was released after 24's tragic death.

The Chipmunk Song

This ditty from 2009 features 21, Kevin, and Tim-Tom singing that song about wanting hula-hoops.

Fan Club Christmas Album 2010

This is another one featuring most of the recurring cast members at the time.  This one has so many homages in it that I dare not list them all.

Baby It's Cold In Here

The last released single, coming from 2011, features The Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend singing Baby It's Cold In Here, which turns out to be a wonderful argument between the two.
