Nobody likes a skinny santa

One of our favorite family expressions is "Nobody likes a skinny Santa".
We've always thought this came from Rudolph the red nose reindeer, following the line "Eat Santa, Eat."
This December, Rudolph was on, and I was the only one at home.  After Mrs Claus said the preceding line, I leaned forward and she said: "The children will be so disappointed."  I looked at the cats and dog in disbelief.  I rewound the TV.  No skinny Santa line at all.  Has the line been cut?  How will I ever get my children to eat fatty foods again?
