Dewey Squirrel likes Christmas songs. Particularly silly ones. So in the spirit of holiday fun, and in tribute to the Squirrel grandparents' well-remembered record collection (stored in a hassock like the one above), we will kick off Dewey's playlist with this daddy-o classic by Jim Backus and Daws Butler.
And stay tuned for more...that record chest was a big one. Vintage hassock photo found on Etsy.
