One Christmas season, the citizens of a small town, both human and mouse, find their letters to Santa Claus have been unceremoniously returned.

While Father Mouse confronts his cynical son, Albert, who wrote the letter; their human companions, a clockmaker and his family work to find a way to regain Mr. Claus' favour.

Quotes

Father Mouse: [after Albert tries out Mr. Trundle's model clock] What's the matter with you? You wanna wake everyone up?
Albert: That's pretty neat. Does it work in a gear and pinion principle or an AC synchronous motor?
Father Mouse: Well, it's more of a - a gear, what? Synchronous uh, who?
Albert: Ever since Copernicus, Dad, it was known that...
Father Mouse: Never mind, never mind, you may know algebra, son, but this time, the whole town's counting on this clock.

An excellent Movie
9 December 1999 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Holiday cartoons. The music is catchy, the characters are involving, and the animation is fun. I find it a shame that this one isn't played much anymore as it tells a great story and is sure to be treasured by generations. I hope that this movie is brought back to holiday specials television, "cause even a miracle needs a hand."
