I miss WPIX, BABES in TOYLAND, and KING KONG!
Gawd, there are so many things I miss since I left NJ for VA. For instance, real Italian food, real rolls and bread, bakeries, SUBS, PIZZA, and of course "Babes in Toyland".
I have programmed my DirecTV receiver to record "Babes in Toyland"/"The March of the Wooden Soldiers" since 2005, and it has been aired only once!!!! Can you believe it?! Still every year I frantically search the guide and set the receivers to record the movie... just in case.
My husband once asked," Why can't you just buy the DVD and watch it every year?". I yelled in disbelief, "Are you kidding? This is a tradition, it isn't the same as watching it on tv!" He just couldn't understand.
I'm sure there is someone that has moved out of the metro area that can relate to my feelings. It's very frustrating not be able to find a channel that airs this holiday classic! I just can't understand why this great movie is only aired for the NY audience! It's a wonderful, holiday classic, and everyone will enjoy it!
