Neglected by her husband during the pre-Christmas rush, Mrs. Claus takes the reindeer and sleigh out for a drive, only to end up stranded in the multicultural neighborhood of Manhattan's Lower East Side of the early 1900s. Written by

After arriving In New York City, Mrs. Claus' sleigh and reindeer are berthed-stored in a city barn (which is the Universal Studios' back-lot Western barn). Stephen M. Katz
, the cinema photographer, asked Braden, the Production Designer, to "open" up the interior barn with windows, which allowed a justification for "more interior lighting" of the dark wooden finished barn stalls, and assisting lighting the "faun-brown" reindeer herd of extras! Doug Vlaming
, construction boss and "his hammer-tones" reconstructed the barn's wall siding, adding six barn window-wing-outs to each barn side, providing the interior with sunlight filling the stalls, thus enabling the additional interior lighting effects Stephen M. Katz
required for filming. This additional budget expense had not been approved by the Halmi-Hallmark Producing team, but was overlooked after dailies were reviewed. See more

It's a very worthy cause dear but, uh, the boots are not quite right.
