This is a video that could melt all but the coldest of Grinch hearts. It must have been written by a lawyer for never have I ever heard a better case for the existance of Santa Claus expounded on any medium. Yes I have heard of and seen Miracle on 34th Street and yes it is a pretty movie but no comparision to this.

What makes this movie way too cool is that core theme hails from a real life Virginia who posed this question many years ago. The very best of the wisdom of her age shines through in this little animation. I am a grown cranky old man and this movie brings me to tears everytime I see it because of its total child like innocence.

The animation's message is one of tolerance and love. This is Christmas seen through the eyes of a child. While not a heavy religious movie its core message rings out the true meaning of Christmas without all the high tone overbearing religious Gobble-D-Gook common in other such fare. This animation only sticks its toe in the religious malstrom for a breif minute and it does not advocate any, "faith". This is just a fun animation suggesting in the holiday season we get in touch with the kinder angel's of our natures which is not at all a bad message in todays world.

I LOVE THIS VIDEO BECAUSE; IT SHOWS THE WORLD AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN, EVERYONE GETTING ALONG! The most awesome thing about this Video is not even about Santa Claus, it shows the world as it would be without the evils of racism and hate. You have a multi-racial classroom with kids all getting along as real friends. You have a peek into what our past would have been like if we could all just get along. The story weaves many beautiful messages about how love manifests itself in many unique cultures all building onto the Santa Claus message.

Looking at Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus was just like seeing an old friend. For so many years I wish that I could see this movie again and for the first time in over 40 years I can say thank you old friend and I will see you again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cartoon Message January 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This hard to find copy of a classic childrens TV special provides just the right approach to a wonderful story for children. I have seen a recent version and it is not nearly as welcoming and friendly as the original. It makes the editor more frightening and off-putting to kids. This version is a wonderful product. While product came with a damaged case, the seller was most prompt in rectifying the situation by supplying a replacement product. Excellent response and service

This is EXACTLY the DVD I've been looking for!! It's the one created by the people that did A Charlie Brown Christmas!! The second two added shorts were snooze-fest material...Christmas Thru the Ages and The Littlest Angel. I'm SO glad Yes Virginia was first!!
