Juan Manuel Cotelo,
A lonely snowman finds Santa's workshop. But when he sets off the perimeter alarms and is chased away, he wonders why he couldn't be Santa and get all the love and fun this year. With the aid of "Snow Minions Made Easy", he pits his snow army against Santa's elves and captures Santa. But can he really do Santa's job? Written by
Ok, it was pretty funny, and the animation was nice, but this film destroyed my view of Santa. He is presented as an indoctrinating corporate logo/warlord! At first, I couldn't believe it was being shown for children, what with the apparent anti-Santa perspective the first part of the film gives. But the ending confirms that the main purpose of this short film is to bludgeon children into consumer-driven mindframe. And I thought those people griping about the commercialization of Christmas were just Humbugs. Now I know that they were on to something! Consumerism is the new ideology of the international marketplace, and this seemingly benign cartoon is a tool propaganda for that "Buy Toys!" doctrine. What a sad image for Christmas.
