Santa Claus came to town

by Chicago guy on 1/26/2016

and the children's classic tv show still resonates with kids. Got it for my nephew and he loves it. Nothing like passing on TV traditions in the cable/computer world we live in now.

ReviewSource SciFilm Review
Review A Special Delivery postal carrier to the North Pole tells the origin of Santa Claus. All those questions children most wanted to know with regards to the jolly individual who delivers gifts every December 24th are answered...Once again Rankin/Bass deliver Christmas animated magic. The sheer level of inventiveness shown in the story told here is more than worth noting but the real star here is the delightful music credited to Maury Laws and Jules Bass. From Kris Kringle's confidence building "Put One Foot in Front of the Other" to the more catchy "toymaker to the King" tunes, these songs are a hoot and a joy. The humor here is also such that an adult can enjoy it every bit as much as a child as long as one is willing to overlook a few silly moments. Paul Frees' Burgomeister Meisterburger and Keenan Wynn's Winter Warlock prove the most fun to watch from adult eyes while to a child, Kris Kringle/Santa (voiced by Mickey Rooney) couldn't possibly be more endearing than he is here. The only problem I have with this one is that Christ couldn't have played more of a factor into the proceedings. Also Jessica's song has dated badly and is wisely removed from most present day airings of the animated classic.
