Synopsis


Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
The story of how Santa Claus came to be is brought to life through the magic of stop-motion animation in this Christmas-themed production for the family. A friendly postman (voiced by Fred Astaire) explains how friendly Kris Kringle (voice of Mickey Rooney), a foundling taken in by a family of toymakers, took it upon himself to bring some happiness to the children of Sombertown, despite the grumpy opposition of Burgermeister Meisterburger (voice of Paul Frees) and the Winter Warlock (voice of Keenan Wynn). Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town was directed and produced by Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin Jr., who created another popular animated story of the season, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This is one of those movies I grew up with as a child. Its nice having it on hand and being able to watch it with my kids. Compared to modern technology and smoother FPS these older movies are kind of choppy. I felt like I was going to get sick during the first few minuets. I think kids would not pick up on it as much... I never did.

    This is a title I remember from my youth, with the classic animation style many of us from this era remember. They age to varying degrees but it was still a trip down memory lane and fun to expose my 6 year old to the same shows I saw at her age.

    This was a favorite from my childhood. The Rankin-Bass stop motion is dated, but the story is heart-warming. The quality was good except for 2 spots where the picture suddenly went black for a second.

    This is a classic film. With all of the high tech animation in the movies today, it's nice to see some old fashion artwork. A step back in time.

    Santa Claus is coming to Town is one of the better classic Christmas movies for kids. My grandson liked watching this movie, especially the Penquin.

    Bought this for my little children and they love it just as much as I did when I was a child. The DVD is great quality and this is a classic that has stood the test of time.
