McKenzie Brothers - 12 Days of Christmas


Bob and Doug McKenzie and The Twelve Days of Christmas

Bob and Doug McKenzie are a pair of fictional Canadian brothers who hosted "Great White North", a sketch which was introduced on SCTV for the show's third season when it moved to CBC Television in 1980. Bob is played by Rick Moranis and Doug is played by Dave Thomas. The duo became a pop culture phenomenon in both the United States and Canada. Their album, The Great White North, went platinum in sales, won a Grammy nomination and broke the top ten on Billboard's Top LPs and Tapes list in March, 1982. On this album, they also sing their own improvised version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas."
