The Christmas '82 showtape is a neat mix of early Christmas songs and some non-Christmas music. This showtape introduces several great songs which find their way into many future compilations.
Rolfe and Earl Versions
- This showtape contains a few Christmas songs know as the "Rolfe and Earl versions" (as opposed to the "Sun and Moon" versions). On the "Uncle Santa
" showtape, Rolfe and Earl were absent, so the Sun and Moon were recorded to fill their roles - often times with quite different dialogue.
- Duke Chauppetta (Dook) wrote this original song. This show is from an earlier tape and uses the old voice actors for Beach Bear and Mitzi. This show also got CEI in trouble with ShowBiz because it sounds like Mitzi says something other than "walking" down Santa Claus Lane. Many records were pulled from shelves on account of this.
12 Days of Christmas
- This original version includes Rolfe and Earl on the 7th and 8th day - Rolfe singing about disco records, and Earl singing about x-ray specs.
Night Before Christmas
- There's a mention by Fatz of Santa doing the "Uncle Klunk Shuffle" on a table.
Secret Agent Man
- In this show, Earl makes a refrence to wearing a "bulletproof colander".

This was a pretty good holiday themed showtape, especially when you condsider how the tracks were laid out - a holiday show, then a non-holiday show, etc. Sometimes hearing nothing but Christmas songs can become a little redundant (and in the guest's perspective, perhaps downright annoying). So for me, the alternating song pattern is really neat. So overall the tape contains a nice variety of shows, but not quite as nice as the next year's holiday endeavor - Christmas 1983
