Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus is another charming animated holiday special from Bill Melendez
17 December 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

"He will continue to make glad, the heart of childhood." So answered New York Sun editor Francis Church at the end of his editorial to one Virginia O'Hanlon one day in 1897 to her question of is there a Santa Claus. Taking a break from the "Peanuts" specials, director Bill Melendez put the same charm he visualized in those on this one to sentimental effect with once again children voicing the kid characters. I loved the scene between that street cop Virginia asked about the red-suited man and that cop's superior on the phone and his reply to Virginia about what that superior said about Santa. And how nice was it to hear Jim Backus as the narrator here. Since I don't want to spoil anything, you'll have to watch this to find out who he's supposed to be in relation to the story. So, yes, that's a recommendation...
