The first two times Claus walks through the village to deliver the gifts, the valley looks like it's summer time, when in fact the movie takes place in a snowy village called The Laughing Valley. See more »
I have watched this movie since i was little, and for all i do admit the subject and the themes used in the movie are slightly darker then the average kids movie, it is one of the best i have seen. I've always loved the entire premiose of the story, and the characters are brilliant, especially the Commander of the Wind Daemons (The Bat like Creature) and Blinky the Cat.
