Yogi was a character developed by American comedian Harry Stewart. In 1949, he recorded a single called I just go Nuts at Christmas, it was a hit! Selling over a million records. Yogi Yorgesson is Swedish guy who complains about all the family stuff that complicates Christmas. He also recorded several other Christmas related songs: Yingle Bells, and The Christmas Party and Santa at the P.T.A.
Yingle Bells (1952)
I just go Nuts at Christmas (1949)
The Christmas Party (1951)
Santa at the P.T.A. (1951)
Sadly, Harry Stewart was killed in a car accident in 1956; forever freezing his characters in a bygone era. In our new politically correct times I wonder if Yogi would have fared so well in our day. Oh well, lucky for us Stewart made these in the 40s and 50s.
