Storyline

Santa stops at a home to drop off Christmas presents and, spying a tray of goodies, sits down for a snack. While he eats, the presents come to life. A toy sailor in a sailboat cruises around to explore, until he attracts the notice of a pretty shepherdess spinning on top of a music box. They flirt until she catches the eye of the evil, black-clad jack-in-the-box. He blows the sailor away, but she spurns his advances. So black-jack cranks the music box up to high and, while she spins around, he throws some rope at her, wrapping her up and binding her. Then he carries her over to a toy train set and lays her on the tracks. The sailor finally rights himself and, despite black-jack's best efforts, manages to save the day! Santa finishes his snack and rewraps the gifts keeping the new lovers together in one package and chastising the jack-in-the-box as the cartoon comes to an end. Written by Anonymous

Twas the Night Before Christmas
29 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA.

This cartoon is fun. Santa Claus brings the toys but some of them are very bad. All the fun begins when Santa is at a house eating the gifted cookies. When the toys get out of line of site the toys start behaving badly.

Again this cartoon is fun. It has some very clever moments. You can stream for free

Everyone should love this. Family safe
