I would have otherwise given this CD 5 Stars or more since it's one of the happiest Christmas albums EVER.
I compared it with my original, scratchy, vinyl version of the same album and this CD is missing: "Sleigh Ride", "Little Fir Tree" and most importantly "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas".
I stupidly assumed that a CD with the same title would have all of the songs of the original.
"Hippopotamus" is THE reason to own this album and the worst song I could think of to leave off of the CD. Everyone I have spoken to who loved this album as a child says the same thing.
A bit disappointing. Find a scratchy vinyl copy with ALL of the songs.

I love this album.
If it had all the songs the old vinyl did, it would be the best Christmas album in the world.
This CD is missing: "Sleigh Ride", "Little Fir Tree" and most importantly "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas". Those were the best songs on the album.

This was THE Christmas album for me as I was growing up in the '60s and '70s. My mother still has the original scratched-up vinyl copy. What really makes it unique (in addition to some original songs written for the album) is the dialogue between the captain and Mr. Green Jeans between the songs. It really allows children use their imagination and feel like they are out in the snow, etc., with the characters. The dialogue also leads into the songs and sets up wonderful scenes in the mind's eye.
I was amazed when I found this album on CD a few years ago. I always thought it was too obscure of a Christmas album to be released on CD. Get it while you can and enjoy!
Note: I gave this current CD version of the album 4 stars because of the unfortunate deletion of 3 songs from the original album (I love the missing "Little Fir Tree" - where else would you hear this song!). I was fortunate, however, to have purchased the CD on the "Drive Archive" label (also found on this website, but "out of stock" - probably forever). That 1998 release had all 17 songs from the original album. It is unbelievable that the current label which has released the CD this time around has deleted 3 songs! Why???!!!

I bought an old, but clean copy of the original album from the 1960's based on the glowing reviews listed elsewhere for this recording. I think that children could certainly enjoy this album, but it isn't much to listen to for those of us who did not grow up with it. Mr. Green Jeans can sing, but Captain Kangaroo can't really carry a tune. I do agree with other reviewers that the songs left out on the CD are some of the better ones on the album. If they were going to cut something, they should have cut the rendition about the Christmas Carol.
Overall, fun for kids and those who were kids when they heard it first.

Wanted to replace the old vinyl record my parents have had since I was little, 25+ years. Too bad it doesn't have all the original songs, "The hippo song"

Over 50 years ago my parents purchased the orginal vinyl ablum for me and I have always loved it. I was so excited when I discovered it in CD format on Amazon, and might even have paid the $70+ for a copy but sadly passed it by because the very song I wanted to hear "I Want a Hipopotomus for Christmas" was not on the album - the very reason I went looking for it! (The five stars are for the original album)
