…pretty sure he wore a Santa hat (or some kind of hat, anyway), and it would have aired on TV around 1988. This is a GeeBee—I think it even had the same paint scheme.
I’ll admit, it’s been over twenty years (oog) so I may indeed be mistaken about the aircraft model, but I’m pretty certain that was the one.
I only remember seeing the commercials for the special, but I don’t recall if I saw the actual program—so no help on plot, etc, I’m afraid. I think it may have been some kind of product tie-in, though.
Can anyone help me out on this one? Or at least tell me it wasn’t just a childhood fever dream?
