LOOK, EVERYONE, IT'S OUR VERY FIRST VCR ALERT

"Davey and Goliath" is back on the air this week, in an all-new special on the Hallmark Channel.

There are sure to be several awkward attempts to make Davey relevant for today's hip snowboarding youth culture, so don't miss it.

Dec. 19, 12 noon; will be repeated on Dec. 26 at noon.


PEOPLE TRY TO PUT US DOWN --- TALKIN' ABOUT MY GENERATION --- JUST BECAUSE WE - - KNOCK OVER LITTLE KIDS TO BEAT THEM TO THE HOT WHEELS DISPLAY

Hot Wheels collectors come out of the closet to tell the world about their magnificent obsession. So just why do these reflective gentlemen pursue tens of thousands of Hot Wheels models? Because they're faster than Matchbox cars. Can't argue with that logic.

The hidden point of interest here is that Hot Wheels have remained a top-selling toy for decades because they've remained cheap - still just about a dollar a pop (though it's really more like $1.33 when you factor in that 1 in 4 cars is lost forever under a wall unit). On the other hand, Lionel trains has declared bankruptcy in part because it has always refused to lower its family-unfriendly price points.
