Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Last year Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin got animated music videos of their most played/famous (at least as it seems to me) Christmas songs, and this year Bing is getting one of Winter Wonderland.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Frank got a new one this year, maybe from the same artist, could this become a yearly thing?

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Only some time ago I wanted to write the same thing, ModernBingFan0377!
I think that it is the most wonderful news for near future! Maybe, really they will make animated music videos for our favourite singers, for unforgettable legends.
I hope that Bing will have more videos like that. ( Can't wait! I want watch Winter Wonderland very much!)
Als I want to say, that not only Frank and Dean already got animated music videos, but also Ella Fitzgerald (Frosty the Snowman was released 16.10.2020)


Will see!

But also there were some other videos like these, for example for Brenda Lee (Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree), released in 2019, Nat King Cole (Christmas Song) in 2018 and Chuck Berry (Run Rudolph Run), released 16.10.2020.

Wow! I hadn't seen any of these.  And there were others, Brenda Lee and Nat King Cole?  Where have I been?   Those 2 are on You Tube as well, I assume.  Wouldn't it be great to see a full length Bing cartoon?

I wish he had done one of those Rankin/Bass Christmas Specials as the narrator like Burl Ives, Fred Astaire, Danny Kaye, and Jimmy Durante. I was quite happy with Bing's Winter Wonderland video, it actually told a story through the animation.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

I think that Bing's Winter wonderland video is wonderful!
We need more videos with him like this!)))
But I have one question: "Where is his pipe?!" (Who ate it?!), yes Mr. Crosby didn't always take the pipe with him, but it is an important atribute!
That's what moderm society does to change the past for young generations, because "smoking never helps people, and it is harmful to their health", so the many people from the past won't smoke (although they really did), the better! (Watch Sinatra's, Dean's and Bing's videos again.) But if it is only a mistake, I think, the autor may be forgiven.))))
Also, I agree with you, Archiefit, it would be great to see full length Bing cartoon! (But I hope,  that as Nataniel said, there will sometimes be a movie about Mr. Crosby, or TV series about him, like Netflix's The Crown, about United Kingdom's royal family.)
And, ModernBingFan0377, I think that it would be nice, If they will do videos for Perry Como, Danny Kaye, Fred Astaire (but I'm not sure that he had ever sang any Christmas songs), Maurice Chevalier and for Rosemary Clooney. Maybe they will even make cartoon wersion of Count Your Blessings ...
Also I found it interesting, that in Winter Wonderland video Bing have another family and only one child! Why not Dixie or Kathryn and where are their fthree or four (or all seven children)?
Ok, I won't ask, apparently, they are at the same place in the video, as Bing's pipe.))))

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Don’t forget that Bing didn’t smoke in his later years. As he said - it just didn’t seem the same anymore.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

I can understand that, Mr. Field, but the song "Winter Wonderland" is written in 1934 and Bing sang it in 1962, so I think that having a pipe was for him, that time, impossible.
There are some photos where he smokes his pipe, dated 1962, so it could be shown in the video.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

These days, promotion of smoking maybe not such a good idea.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

WOW!!!   I can't wait.  I hope they do the '47 version or even better, my personal favorite version, his '55 recording.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Looking at the YouTube copyright for the one it looks like it could very possibly the 1947 version.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Wow! Wow! Wow!
Christmas is really coming earlier this year!
That's very strange that they made another video for Bing, and cartoon is made by another artist, but I like it!
I like it very much!
We're getting presents now!
I hope that it will be a tradition and next year we'll have more!
That's simply amazing!

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

I think, that one of the best variants will be, if they use 1942's White Christmas (from "Holliday Inn" movie), becaue it's one of the first versions. Before that Bing performed this song on his NBC radio show The Craft Music Hall on Christmas day, 1941, but 1947's or 1955's White Christmas will be alright, too.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

I doubt they’ll use the 1955 version as they haven’t officially released at all, or if they have it hasn’t been since the 90s. The 1942 they very well could use, but I believe they’ll use the 1947 for the better sound quality and the pure iconic-ness that version has gained on the radio.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Ok, I really won't mind using any of Bing's versions/
And I want to say, that Sinatra will have another video the same time as Mr.Crosby.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

I saw that as well, although I fear they’re using the 1957 version whereas the ‘54 or ‘68 versions of The Christmas Waltz, in my opinion, are much better.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Wow. Just wow. The new White Christmas video fits the song perfectly. It shows both moods of the songs, whether happy, or very melancholy. It shows why this song meant so much to soldiers in WWII and beyond. I thought the last one was good but this blows it out of the water.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

I like this White Christmas video very much!
It reminds us about WWII and how much Bing's songs meant for people, so I agree the story is quite melancholy, but happy too.
Also, I think that there was very few Bing moments in the video and it is, kind of sad for me. I wan't talk about pipe again, but the problem is the same.
So it's very interesting and good, but in my opinion Winter Wonderland video is better, (I, personally, like it more).
Will wait for other videos!

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

I find the absence of the pipe actually disappointing in this one, as the song was recorded when he was very much known for using it. I'm fine with him not smoking, although it would've been nice in his hand at the end. I find that I prefer less Bing for a song like this, as it tells more of a story which fits this song. Bing being more present in Winter Wonderland makes a lot more sense. I love how Bing would 'radiate' through the air a couple time with the soldier listening to the radio and when he whistles.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

That White Christmas video was disappointing to me, not nearly as Christmasy as the Sinatra Christmas videos, kind of depressing actually.  I guess political correctness effects even Bing videos.  I wouldn't have minded if everyone was smoking.  Would have made the video more fun anyway.  Maybe the kid could have had a bubblegum cigar like I used to have as a kid.

Re: Winter Wonderland Animated Music Video to Premiere Tomorrow

Completely agree with last two posts!
White Christmas video is too depressing and sad ...
