Editorial Reviews

For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas "a fraudulent myth!" The skeptical rodent Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses "and let up a little on the wonder why." How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa's jolly return to Junctionville -- and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable inspired by Clement Moore's poem. Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel are featured voices.

3.0 out of 5 stars [Bly-ray] Good Show, Decent Treatment December 1, 2011
(This is a review of the Blu-ray.) While it is nice to see this overlooked show get the Blu-ray treatment don't expect a remastered transfer. While the picture is clear and crisp they did not clean up the print that was used. Lots of dust and scratches are present throughout. Also the audio is center channel only on surround sound.

Having said that, you don't really need surround sound and perfect picture to enjoy the show. We aren't dealing with an HD cineplex blockbuster here. It is a pleasant little Christmas special. It has some touching and funny moments, a few memorable songs, and a nice atmosphere thanks to the voice of Joel Grey. You could quibble a little with the story (Why is Santa prone to holding grudges and being petty in some of these Rankin and Bass stories?)

Anyway, $13 is a little steep for what you get, but you cannot complain too much here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cup Is Half Full March 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite holiday cartoons. This review is about the product not the movie. The dvd worked fine. The Bluray did NOT work (in both my original disc and the replacement disc Amazon sent and in multiple Bluray players). The Bluray previews all had audio but different sound levels. The Bluray Menu Screen had audio. However, when clicking Play the actual movie had NO audio. Possible mass quantity manufacturing defect? I was able to compromise with Amazon and agreed on a reduced price since the dvd in the disc set was fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Santa Claus May Not Come January 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
I was glad to find this because I watched it when I was little and hadn't seen it in years. I wasn't sure it was going to be the same thing because I only had a vague memory of the storyline. Long story short it is the same story. A mouse named Albert and a few of his friends write a letter calling Santa Claus a fraudulent myth which angers him and he returns every-ones letters to him unopened. A clockmaker hoping to show Santa Claus that they really do love him and believe in him makes a clock that will play a special song for him to hear at the stroke of midnight. Santa Claus does come but first a miracle has to happen because Albert accidently breaks the clock when he climbs inside to see how it works insuring that Santa Claus may not be coming. This is a very good story and a very good show. One review complained about the lack of extras the disc has. Obviously she didn't have the Blu-ray because that gives you the DVD and what little extras are on that plus the movie on Blu-ray with at least one other extra that I haven't watched yet. Anyway like I said this is a good story and a good show. You should get it because youll regret it if you don't. Merry Christmas.
