I finally watched the Year Without a Santa Claus and during the mayor’s song he really hammers home hoe much he wants a white Christmas right here in Dixie. 


Now I’m willing to give a bit of slack to an all white cast in a classic cartoon. But this was 1974, post civil rights movement. There should be at least one non white character, right? 

Like Charlie Brown. Which has Franklin. And two anthopomorohized characters. 

Guess not. 

Garfield? 

‘Twas the Night? 

Grinch? Non white, yes but I don’t think I can count green. 

There are honestly more parts for animals than for any diverse cast. 

Not to over analyze Christmas but, here we are.
