2015 Christmas Countdown: Gayla Peevey Wants a Hippopotamus

Does Gayla Peevey look like a Baby Jane Hudson in the making or what! Gayla became a child star  ~ and one-hit wonder ~ in 1953 at age 10. Watch as she struts her stuff in the attached video below. There's also a hint of Nellie Oleson to her.

Gayla certainly looks peevish as she preens and prances with lots of pizzazz, singing "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas."

She actually had another hit single in 1970 with "Robot Man," recording under the name Jamie Horton. The song was covered by Connie Francis. Her recording career was over by 1962.

But Gayla settled down, got married, became an English teacher and adjusted nicely to normal life it would seem.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, from Buddy Beaverhausen!
