Storyline

It's Christmas and Jonathan and Mark's latest assignment is to try and get a divorced couple who are still bickering with each other and use their son as a pawn to stop. They go to work for the father who is a lawyer. They take their son to the department store to see Santa. The Santa there really believes himself to be Santa and doesn't approve of the stores marketing policies - he goes into a rage. He gets arrested and Jonathan defends him. The department store owner tells their lawyer, the boy's mother to get him (Santa) to shut up. So parents go at it in court. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Sentimental holiday offering
3 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is classic 80s television...and it's a classic holiday entry for this series. Landon likes episodes to focus on the resiliency of the human spirit, and he likes stories in particular that involve children. This episode, about a Santa on trial, has all that. It was written by Dan Gordon and borrows heavily from Fox's MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET. But instead of being a blatant ripoff, it is a tender, respectful homage. There are a few differences. First, the gender of the child who believes that the man really is Santa has been changed from a girl to a boy. There is also a bitter custody battle being waged between the attorneys, who are recently divorced. Throughout these proceedings, there are some scenes that address domestic problems and family unity from a rather 1980s point of view. Still, it's a very enjoyable episode. And while it's highly sentimental, it gives the viewer a lot to ponder.
