Satan ... Santa ... oh, whatever

This excerpt from a 1959 Mexican documentary reveals that Satan and his imps really know how to cut a rug:

It may be true, as the saying goes, that the devil has all the best tunes. Now we know that he's also a Bob Fosse wannabe. (Jazz hands!)

It's possible that parts of this movie were ransacked as the frame story in that "Santa Claus and His Helpers" short I posted last week. According to descriptions, this film features Merlin, Stinky, and the rest of the beloved gang, too, and how many Christmas-themed movies could Stinky the Skunk have made? Also, I've yet to watch it, but there's a Mystery Science Theatre 3000 version -- part 1 is here. I'm sure this is much less painful than searching for the original feature, which is also cut up on YouTube. I'm saving this for when I've had too much eggnog (which should be any minute now, actually).

That Satan really has some showmanship.

In another time, he'd have his own variety show.
