Time Now for a, erm, Spunky Christmas Song

“Let’s Get Spunky!” is a demented spoof of all things classic television. It takes the nuclear family genre of the late 50’s/early 60’s and turns over its apple cart to play both with absurdity (Monty Python takes over Mayberry) as well as context, the way in which the golden age is portrayed versus how it actually was behind the wholesome image.

One way to describe it is to say that animated shows like “The Simpsons” took the nuclear family comedy forward and freed it to the absurd through animation, allowing the content to flourish without the boundaries of single camera sets and real actors. “Spunky” attempts to take it back again into the period context and use that as its reference to expound upon the absurd.

Robert Glenn Plotnick, SPUNKY’S creator, has decided to go all Christmas on our butts this year, resulting in one of the wildest NSFW Christmas song parodies we’ve seen in a long time. And, fortunately for all of us, also one of the best. Here’s what RGP has to say about his latest brainchild: read article
