I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas 'I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas', was sung by an 11-year-old girl, Gayla Peevey, who according to legend, was a regional child star of the Oklahoma City area. This 1953 hit was recorded as a fund-raiser to bring the city zoo a hippo. When released nationally by Columbia Records the song shot to the top of the charts, and the city zoo got a baby hippo named Matilda! This is the first Christmas song I remember hearing on a little plastic record player I had as a kid, I was 7.

I Want a Hippopotomus for Christmas As far back as I can remember, this song was the one I sang and played constantly on a little record played my folks had given me as a present around 1953. I was only 5-6 at the time, but this song made me so happy! I never did get one though...
