Santa Claus is Comin' To Town, an exciting look at how Santa began. Good to put on for young children to help answer those burning Santa questions. At some points, questions are actually asked by children about Santa, which are answered by the narrator Fred Astaire. I really like the character of BurgerMeister MeisterBurger who is one of the evil characters Santa must get past to be able to deliver his presents. The score is wonderful too, my fave being "Put one Foot in front of the Other".
The Little Drummer Boy, which is found on the same disc as Santa Claus is comin to Town is right up there with the tissue factor as another R/B special Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey. This story is about a little boy named Aaron who has had a huge tragedy in his life, bringing him to hate humans. His only friends, therefore, being a camel, donkey and lamb who dance to the beat of his drum. The strange foursome end up being a part of the very first Christmas on that very holy night.
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, is probably most R/B fans favourite. The Story based on the song of the same name, follows Rudolph as he battles to gain respect, due to his bright red nose. He is joined by Hermey, one of Santas elves who wants to be a dentist, not an elf, and together decide to be "a couple of misfits". It is narrated by Burl Ives as Sam the Snowman and probably has the best set of songs as a whole out of all the other R/B specials. Plus with so many other great characters, Yukon Cornelious, Abominable, Clarice, Donner and Mrs Donner and of course Santa and Mrs Claus, you can't go wrong.
Frosty the Snowman, although animated and not claymation, is still one of my faves every year.Read more ›
1.) Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer - Who doesn't knoww this film? (Actually there are quite a few people who I have met who have NEVER seen this! ) I am shocked when I find people who have NEVER know the story about the Reindeer with the red nose, the Dentist Elf, the carzy prospector who looks for Silver and Gold, but ends up with a Peppermint Mine (It is in the NEW Director's Cut Edition), the Abominable "Bumble" Snow Monster of the North, the Island of Misfit Toys, the Skinny Santa Claus, it's all here! This is the stuff that dreams are made of! This story, along with EVERY other GREAT Christmas film (excluding the Grinch) was written by one GREAT man, Mr. Romeo Muller. He also wrote the Puff the Magic Dragon series and several other films as well. You can not go wrong with this man's GREAT work! The man was a genius who REALLY understood children! If you have earlier editions of this movie buy this Golden Books edition, because it has over 5 minutes of footage not seen since 1964, when it originally aired. (There is even stuff in this tape that was NOT shown on CBS in the publisised restored edition that has aired for the last 2 years.) If you have seen this movie, buy this version, if you have never seen this movie, I suggest that you buy it as well! I grew up on this story as a child! I watched it all year round and you and your children will too, with no doubt.
2.) The Little Drummer Boy - This is a FINE example of what Christmas is ALL ABOUT and not being too preachy.Read more ›
The alterations are the only reason I rated this so low.
These DVD's were released before, but this set has brand new packaging, plus a Holiday music CD is included!
"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", perhaps the greatest Christmas show of all-time is in my view, the best part of this set.
A Puppet/Animated Snowman played by classic "Holly Jolly Christmas" Singer Burl Ives, tells us to "Pull up an Ice Block" and join him, as he tells us the classic story of how a Reindeer named Rudolph went from being a "misfit" to being the only one who could save Christmas from being canceled, due to the extraordinary Snowstorm.
Only Rudolph's shiny Nose (you could even say it glows) can illuminate Santa's view of the houses of all of the Good Boys and Girls, so that Santa can make his annual Christmas visit!
Lovable characters, and the classic moral story that all of us have importance combine to make Christmas magic!
In "Santa Claus is coming to town", we learn how Kris Kringle becomes Santa Claus, and what he has to go through to bring happiness to children all around the world.
We also see how Santa meets Mrs Claus! This is a wonderful story, told and sung by Fred Astaire, that adults and kids alike, will enjoy.
Who could forget the most famous Snowman of all?
I'll give you a hint....he had a special Hat that "magically" gave him life.
That's right! Frosty The Snowman!
This delightful cartoon, told and sung by Jimmy "Acha Cha Cha" Durante is considered by many to be right there with "Rudolph" as the most beloved Christmas show ever!Read more ›
