Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf, Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas, James Stewart in It's A Wonderful Life… There are so many great Christmas movie characters. Show us your favorite.

oh my people, there is no competition.  the one, the only… Mr. Parker aka "the old man"

let me share some of the reasons why (via imdb)

Mr. Parker: He looks like a deranged Easter Bunny.
Mother: He does not!
Mr. Parker: He does too, he looks like a pink nightmare!

———————————————————————————————————————-

Mr. Parker: It's a Major Award!
Swede: Shucks I wouldn't know that. It looks like a lamp.
Mr. Parker: What is a lamp, you nincompoop? Tt's a Major Award. I won it!
Swede: Damn, hell, you say won it?
Mr. Parker: Yeah, mind power, Swede; mind power.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Mr. Parker: You mundane noodle!

The Old Man: Sons of bitches! Bumpuses!

———————————————————————————————————————-

Mr. Parker: [unveiling his major award] Would you look at that? Would you look at THAT?
Mother: What is it?
Mr. Parker: It's a leg!
Mother: But what is it?
Mr. Parker: Well, it's… A leg, you know, like a statue.
Mother: Statue?
Mr. Parker: Yeah, statue.
Ralphie: Yeah, statue.
Mother: Ralphie!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] My mother was trying to insinuate herself between us and the statue.


Mr. Parker: Holy smokes. Do… Do you know what this is? This is… A lamp!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] It was indeed a lamp.
Mr. Parker: Isn't that great? What a great lamp.
Mother: I don't know…
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] The old man's eyes boggled…
Mr. Parker: Oh WOW!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] … Overcome by art.

  1. I can't wait for the marathon!
    I had to think about my favorite Christmas movie. I adore "While You Were Sleeping". I don't care if people think it's a silly chick movie. It makes me happy. :-)

  2. Do it! It's okay to have a guilty pleasure – hidden away, of course. :-)
    I don't own movies, but that one I can watch over and over and it's still cute.

  3. My favoritest holiday movie ever with my belovedest furnace-fighting Dad ever!"My old man worked in profanity like other artists worked in oils…"

  4. You mundane noodle!Heehee, one of my favorite insults from the movie. Ralphie's parroting of his old man's language reminded me of the first time I said "Goddammit," my father's favorite oath when he hit his thumb with a hammer or dropped a tiny screw under the toolbench. My mom used dishwashing liquid, though, not Lifeboy soap.

  5. I'm way dating myself, but my favorite part about him as a character is that he used to play Karl Kolshack in the old "Night Stalker" tv show and tv movies. It's an awesome juxtaposition.

  7. I loved The Night Stalker! (dating myself, too)mariser, I just saw A Christmas Story for the first time this year! *blush* I know…it's almost anti-American! I finally know what that leg lamp is…and what "Bumpuses" are! Lol!
