5 Things You Need to Know Today — Dec. 5, 2012

Here's what is going on today and throughout the week in Plymouth and Canton.

Trivia: Which child star had a cameo as one of Buddy the Elf's supervisors in the Will Ferrell comedy "Elf"?

Yesterday's trivia answer: Ralphie wanted an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle. The precise model Ralphie wanted never actually existed, but was a hybrid of two manufacturers' air rifles, but during the 1940s, when "A Christmas Story," takes place, Daisy air rifles were made here in Plymouth.

Buddy’s supervisor at the North Pole in the movie "Elf" is Peter Billingsley, of A Christmas Story. “You’re not a cotton-headed ninny-muggins, Buddy. You’re just … different.” Aw. Super-cool!

You can spot him immediately by his bright blue eyes - definitely Ralphie! http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/19600000/Peter-Billingsley-in-Elf-elf-19602314-320-240.jpg
