Video: Back in the early 1950s, a ventriloquist named Paul Winchell had a TV show that featured his dummy named Jerry Mahoney. The program was a hit and is perhaps most notable today for featuring Carol Burnett's TV debut. But even if you aren't interested in ventriloquism, one episode from 20 December 1953 will be amusing to fans of paleofuturism. That holiday season episode imagined what Christmas would look like in the futuristic year 2000.
