From his truly magical childhood through the discovery of his life’s work of making children happy, discover the origin of every tradition surrounding Santa Claus, from toys, stockings and lighted trees to reindeer and sleigh. Journey back to a time of magic and wonder, and experience this heartwarming tale that will bring joy each holiday season.

I think I'll watch it every year. This is a great story of how Santa Claus came to be from when he was a baby to a young man who helped children and of course to his old self that we know him today. It is told like a fairy tale fantasy with elves and sprites; but it is more than just any fantasy, it is a story of a life, the life of Nicholus and is very touching. Children will love it. So will adults. I am giving it to my mother, she loves Santa Claus(decorations)and now I see why. PLEASE release this on DVD!!! Their is no reason NOT to!

While this is an okay, traditionally-animated movie starring Robbie Benson of Beauty and the Beast fame, I need to point out (as a warning to Rankin/Bass fans looking for the stop-motion animation feature from 1985) that this is not the same thing. This item refers to a 2000 feature. Compare IMDB's tt0089488 (1985) with tt0267675 (2000) for a complete comparison.

Anyone who DOESN'T love this wonderful tale of Nicholas needs to look closer at the true meaning of the holidays. "Christmas" is a modern version of an anicent pagan celebration. This movie explores the idea that Santa Claus is more than a fat man in a red suit (or as some think "the oppsite of 'real' christmas").
It shows a wonderful concept that Santa was human and helped to make lives better by bringing hope back to children and adults.
The fact that he is raised by and befriended by faries, pixies, gnomes and other fantasy creatures adds to the charm and wonder of the story.
If you love Fairy Tales and have an imagination, you will love this movie !!!

This video is perfect way to explain Santa to your young ones. It explain the origins of Santa a lot better than any other movie or video out today. It doesn't show it in a materialistic way. The giving of toys was done in a heart-felt way. It brings back the mysticism of Santa that so very much of us have lost as we grew older. It once again allows us to see Santa with the eyes of a child. Innocently. All the answers to why Santa is 'Santa' is here. Its like the Ultimate Guide to Santa Claus.

I'm in my late '30s and sure, I revert back to the crib when I catch holiday movies (including gems like Nestor The Long Eared Christmas Donkey and, of course, Rudolph). I'm a sap. So I can't believe I missed this one--it's the story of how Santa Claus came to be told in the most mystical and magical way possible. I wasn't familiar with Baum's original book, so the fable of Nicholas as a baby being found and raised by faerie-folk, the love of his adopted mother (an immortal), how he grew as a boy into a young man and, finally, the ho ho ho jolly older man we all know, how he began to give gifts and how he discovered his love of gift-giving to children...all are covered in such a unique way. Even the reindeer/sleigh/chimney/stockings/Xmas tree--it's all here! Very Irish tale, as well, it's not hard to see the nearby village and the inhabitants are supposed to be in Ireland. There's good old-fashioned good vs. evil, great songs, excellent animation, beautiful and magical beings right out of Lord Of The Rings. Is it wrong that I thought Santa as a handsome young man was totally hot? If you're a Christmas junkie and also into fantasy tales, this one may be the best holiday movie (animated) you've ever seen. I blubbered through half of it...it was *that* beautiful and touching.

I am a mom of a four and six year old, and this is our very favorite Santa story to watch. The cartoon does a great job of capturing the enchantment and warmth of Frank Baum's story of Santa Claus. Many questions young children ask about Santa such as his age, etc., are magically answered in this must watch tale. I put this movie on for the kids when family came to visit and found even the grandparents sitting down and intrigued by the story. The music is perfect for the storytelling, and the lessons learned in this movie help my children appreciate their life a little more. This movie is an absolute must for children and adults of all ages. This is the perfect movie to watch with the entire family on Christmas Eve.

My son and I saw this during the summer on the cartoon network and were enchanted. We have watched it several times during this holiday season (2001)and it has become a must-view for us, along with the original "Grinch".

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!! I love the music, the voices, the story. All of it! It is calming for little ones, yet interesting to keep older ones attention. Nice way to relax in the evening with a mug of cocoa and Christmas cookies! I love how it explains Santa's immortality and reindeer and how he came to be our beloved Santa!
