The Year Without A Santa Claus (Blu-Ray/DVD Combo)
At the North Pole, the Christmas rush is on. Everyone from elves to reindeer are merrily preparing for Santa Claus's yearly sleigh ride. Everyone except Santa! Feeling forgotten by the children of the world, old St. Nick decides to skip his gift-giving journey and take a vacation. Eager to help, Mrs. Claus and two spunky little elves set out to see to where all the season's cheer has disappeared. Aided by a magical snowfall, they reawaken the spirit of Christmas in children's hearts and put Santa back in action.]]>

Still the Miser Brothers number is the highlight of the show. So much so that even decades after first seeing it, that scene is the majority of what I remember about this special. The rest of the show is a serviceable story about Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus. Though I kind of wish that it was a little better tied to Here Comes Santa Claus. A little nod to it would have been Santa calling himself Mr. Kringle when asked who he is instead of Klaus. But that is minor. All in all, I enjoyed it as a boy and I enjoy it to this day.
I love them *still* ~ they remind me of my Christmases as a child...when they would be played on TV at Christmastime.
I so enjoy the simpler animation... After a while, as amazing as the super-up-to-date, technological, uber-digital movies can be, I prefer the more simplified animated show.
*****These are also pre-"change"******
For example, in "The Year Without a Santa Claus", at one point of the movie Santa blows his nose (after getting teary-eyed) and says, "God bless my soul."
Uhhhhhh....you can't put a price on THAT anymore... In this day and age? I'll take that over any super-modern movie any day of the week and two trillion times on Christmas!
The story of Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey is about a sweet, misfit donkey who is bullied and belittled by his peers because of his long ears but he eventually becomes the "chosen" donkey... Mary and Joseph pick him to be the donkey that carries Mary to the place of Jesus' birth... Beautiful... Yes...and at the end, he's revered by those that once treated him poorly :)
Rudolph's Shiny New Year is always a favorite... I think I especially love Morey Amsterdam as "O.M." (short for One Million), the caveman that Rudolph befriends on an Archipelago Island. Another good story with layers of history, kindness and hope.
HIGHLY recommend...even if only to keep more good and God in your fun, Christmas viewing.
What is nice is that this DVD is the deluxe edition so not only do you get The Year without a Santa Claus, you also get two other movies: Rudolph's Shiny New Year and Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey. I had never seen these other movies but they proved to be just as fun and will become Christmas staples in our house.
