In 1921, “I have made a discovery that will ensure the superiority of German music for the next 100 years.” Thatʹs what Arnold Schoenberg said when he developed his 12-tone method of composition. Schoenberg started his first 12-tone work, the Wind Serenade on this day. So what tone work does “Weird Al” Yankovic use when he writes song parodies? A 27-tone method?
In 1937, The first Santa Claus training school opened in Albion, New York.
In 1943, Bing Crosby recorded “Pistol Packin' Mama,” and “Jingle Bells”
In 1947, The animated feature film, “Fun and Fancy Free” is released. It includes the animated films, “Bongo”, and “Mickey and the Beanstalk” (with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy).
In 1954, Helen Kushnick forces Steve Allen to make his “Tonight Show” radically different than the version done by his predecessor, who heʹs not even allowed to mention on his first night hosting.

Skitch Henderson and His Orchestra provided the music. Ernie Kovacs was the host from 1956-1957. The late-night show has gone through numerous changes since then. Allen served as host until 1957. He was replaced by Jack Parr, who served until 1962; Johnny Carson reigned as the king of comedy until 1992, followed by Jay Leno, Conan OʹBrien, Jay Leno again, and Jimmy Fallon.

Starring ARNOLD STANG in the lead role (of a conniving New York alleycat outwitting the cops) it also featured “SGT. BILKO” MAURICE GOSFIELD as the voice of BENNY…And while the series, debuting this night, lasted just a year in prime time, itʹs been rerun endlessly for kids ever since.

In 1996, The sci-fi sitcom “Sabrina, The Teenage Witch” debut on ABC. Sabrina episode number one: In “Pilot”, Sabrina canʹt believe her bad luck: not only is she starting out in a new school the day after her 16th birthday, but her aunts inform her that she is now a full-fledged witch with newly awakened magical powers that she must learn to control. At first she thinks they are just trying to take her mind off starting school, but after she reanimates the frog she is supposed to dissect, Sabrina begins to have second thoughts — especially when her aunts present her with a book which contains an animated picture of her father, and reveal that her cat, Salem, can talk. Her first hesitant attempts at magic backfire when she is taunted into losing her temper with a snotty schoolmate named Libby Chessler and turns her into a pineapple, she must then appeal to the Council of Witches for permission to turn time back and run the disastrous day over again. She is refused, but Aunt Hilda — who used to date Drell, the head of the Council — marches off to intervene, and Sabrina finds herself re-living the day, this time acing a history test, making a friendly date with shy hunk Harvey Kinkle, and harmlessly deflecting Libbyʹs malice. Being a teenage witch might not be so bad after all.
