    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.

      Second I saw this I had to get it. Especially for the Black Friday price. So heartwarming and clever old movies will never not hold a place in my heart.

      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.

      We have watched this classic movie since our kids were very young. It is hard to find the classic movies on television now. This is a gift we can watch and enjoy. Love it!

      I bought this so I could share the fun with my little one. It may not be the most state-of-the-art movie, but she recognized all the characters and still enjoyed it.

      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 movie has actual good Christmas messages mixed with the fun nature of Santa. It’s not pure consumerism or cheesy “believe in yourself lol” junk. Gotta see if.
