Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus (1974)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A young girl named Virginia keeps getting picked on because she believes in Santa Claus. She asks one adult after another but none of them are willing to tell her so she writes a letter to a local newspaper where Frances Church posts an answer. Based on the famous 1897 story, this animated tale is a pretty good little film even if the 25-minute running time does feel a tad bit long at times. I think the film would have been much better had five-minutes or so been cut out. Early on there's a pretty long sequence where Virginia keeps asking the same question over and over and I must admit that after a while it got a bit boring. Outside of that this here is a pretty good little film and of course it has a great message behind it. The original article response to the girl is read at the end of the movie and I'm sure it will have the same impact on young children as it did when first published. The animation looks extremely good and there's no doubt that the Virginia character is quite enjoyable.
