The AquabatsAfter The Hub Network began it's slow disintegration earlier this year (disclosure: I was one of their "Hub Club" writers for about five minutes), one of the major signs that the end was near was their unceremonious non-cancelling cancellation of THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW!, almost at the same time in which The Aquabats! received five Daytime Emmy nominations, of which they'd win one. If I understand it correctly, they essentially gave the show back to The Aquabats!, leaving them free to take it to another network or service. While Netflix is the obvious choice for new episodes (and hey, I write for the Netflix #StreamTeam now!), the first season disappeared from the streaming giant on December 15th, but in a "Christmas miracle" of sorts, the entire run of the show, including the "lost" Season 2 and "3" (special) episodes have appeared on both Amazon Instant and iTunes. Why is this so important, you ask? Well, as a gift to all of you, The Aquabats! have uploaded the entire Christmas! With The Aquabats! special to YouTube, and it can be viewed now, right here on THE ROCK FATHER. Personally, I've been waiting nearly a year to see this one again...

 

For those unfamiliar, Krampus is a fantastic character from German folklore that more children in the United States should learn to know and respect. He could be considered the "Anti-Claus" - the opposite of Santa for the bad kids... and has become a point of contention between my wife and I (I love Krampus). Here, this hoofed beast faces off against one of the finest bands that the world has ever known!

Bonus: Check out when I took my oldest daughter to her first rock show, The Aquabats! at Chicago's House of Blues!
