Featuring the voice of Mickey Rooney as Santa Claus and narrated
by Fred Astaire, this classic Christmas tale tells of orphan
boy Kris Kringle and how he turned into the Santa Claus we
all know and love today. Also included is the animated story
of The Little Drummer Boy...
Claus is Comin' to Town
a classic animated story which is ideal for those little children
who will be expectantly waiting for Santa to fill their stocking's
full of toys. If you have a little one who asks questions
like: "Why does Santa go down chimney's?" or: "Why
did he start taking out toys to the world's children?"
then this will help silence those inquisitive voices.
movie tells the tale of how Santa was found as a baby and
how he was brought up - following his life through to the
old man we now know. The animation is pretty good, the songs
are okay and, thankfully, the movie print has been scrubbed
up nicely for the DVD transfer. It's also amusing to see how
things have changed in recent years - would we really accept
a song asking kids to sit on Santa's lap and giving him a
kiss for a toy in these bleak and paranoid times? I doubt
addition to this 50 minute feature, there is a 25 minute animated
version of The Little Drummer Boy. This is a little
dull, the animation is a bit poor in places and the DVD transfer
is appalling - with plenty of scratches and bits of dust present.
is a magical DVD that will certainly keep the young, and young
at heart, warm over the festive period.
