Santa and the Three Bears (1970)

** (out of 4)

Pretty bland animated film has two cubs sneaking out of their den and going to the home of the local forest ranger. Once there the ranger tells them the story of Santa Claus and when they return home they don't want to hibernate because they want to see the Jolly fat man. This causes their mother to get worried because she feels they're just going to be disappointed since there's really no such thing. At 46-minutes this film just goes on way too long and there's really not too many interesting things in it. Yes, the cubs are cute and yes there's a nice message to be had but I think most kids and especially their parents are going to be bored out of their minds. The biggest problem is the running time because there's so much stuff that happens here that could have been edited out without hurting the actual film or its message. We get way too many scenes where the cubs keep asking questions either about Santa or about other things and it just never really drew me into the story. The animation is nice and I thought the vocal performances were good but neither of these are strong enough to make the film worth sitting through.
