Christmas as it should be!
4 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A rather charming little film, which starts with Santa feeding hay to his reindeer, before moving back into his workshop to finish toymaking. The scene switches to a middle class house (parents, five children all about 4!, grandpa and maid). They tell the Christmas story, then hang up stockings before the children are packed off to bed (in two beds and one cot). The children get up, are chased back to bed, then have a proper pillow fight with feathers flying everywhere: I wonder how difficult this scene was to film. Santa checks his delivery schedule and inventory, loads up the sleigh and heads off - a superb animated sequence. Arriving at a chimney, he climbs down, fills stocking and otherwise creates a festive air before continuing his deliveries. The children and adults come down and are delighted. As a children's story, the film still works today.
