Question: I remember seeing a Christmas special when I was a kid that featured Snow Miser and Sun Miser. Can you please tell me the name of the special? It's driving me crazy because no one that I've talked to remembers it. — Sherry P., Decatur, Ill.

Televisionary: Then you've gotta hang out with people who are either older or more fun, Sherry. It's actually Snow Miser and Heat Miser you're thinking of, and they're among the more memorable characters in Rankin and Bass's The Year Without A Santa Claus, which featured Mickey Rooney voicing Santa and Hazel's Shirley Booth as his narrating wife. You can buy it on VHS or, if you're among the DVD-enabled, on a disc with Nestor, the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey and Rudolph's Shiny New Year.
