Apocalypse Now Spoof
March 7, 2006 8:11 AM   Subscribe

Years ago on Saturday Night Live they ran a short film (clay-mation, perhaps?) that was a hilarious little spoof of Apocalypse Now. It that out on the Web anywhere? Anyone have info on its title, creator, etc?

From Wikipedia:

Claymation cartoonist Corky Quakenbush produced "A Pack of Gifts Now", which is part of his Rudolph Trilogy (the other two being "Raging Rudolph" and "The Reinfather.") The short is set in Saskatchewan, with Rudolph in the Willard role and Santa Claus in the Kurtz role. Rudolph's mission is to "terminate the Kringle (Santa) with extreme prejudice." This short would air on the Christmas edition of MadTV in 1999.

Yup, it was on MadTV, not SNL.

Here's a Youtube video of Raging Rudolph. I'm still searching for the other ones.

Yowza! So glad people are still enjoying my little bits of demented nonsense! They were written by Spencer Green and Mary Williams (Raging Rudolph and The Reinfather), and Patton Oswalt and myself (A Pack of Gifts Now) by the way... if you want the whole set, I have them on my promotional DVD...
