Quotes

Santa Claus: [Reading letter] "Dear Santy Claus, I'm Billy Brown / Here's a list I've jotted down / I want a giraffe and a duck and a whale / A cow and a pig with a seven-foot tail / A tiger that roars and a leopard with spots / A barrel of monkeys, a pony who trots / I want a baboon, a dog that'll bark / A walrus, a herring, a hog and a shark." Ha! I'll give him Noah's Ark.
Elf: But Billy Brown, for seven years, hasn't washed behind his ears.
Santa Claus: Well, ha-ha, there's still some hope. I'll just add a cake of soap.

Santa's Workshop is another excellent Christmas cartoon from Walt Disney
10 December 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this, a Walt Disney Silly Symphony, on YouTube. It's the first of two Disney cartoons that star Santa Claus (the other one was The Night Before Christmas). He checks his list which one of his elves monitor in a book that reveals each child's behavior. When one of the children is revealed to not have "washed behind the ears for seven years", Santa decides to add soap to this boy's long list of presents. Highly musically entertaining with some amusing gags like someone using a spider to scare some of the dolls' hair in an upright position and someone else painting exact checker squares in one fell swoop on a board. There's also one politically incorrect blackface doll that says, "Mammy!" to Claus that may be considered offensive today but was considered a highly amusing reference to then-star Al Jolson. Since it only lasts a few seconds, I don't think any harm is done. This was quite an entertaining animated short that I highly recommend to any animation fan especially Walt Disney completists. Children should enjoy this too.
