Decent, fairly funny with good moral conclusion
9 December 2001 | by (Orangevale, California) – See all my reviews

A decent little story in which we learn how Santa is able to visit all the kids in the world in one night without being seen. Unfortunately, when he visits the Wrigley home waiting for him are chief scammer Uncle Nick and his protégée and nephew Danny. When Santa makes an error he is not only seen but ends up unconscious with Uncle Nick and Danny in his new hi-tech sleigh, but for different reasons. Danny wants to complete Santa?s mission while the larcenous Nick has altogether different plans. Good story to teach kids, and adults, the value of honesty and how cheating hurts those most important to us. 6 stars out of 10
