Here Comes Santa Claus
30 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There was no hiding the fact it was Christmas season because this story is a real departure from the normal fare. I am not a "grinch." Christmas is very important but this episode was kind of sappy and predictable, not up to standards, although it did has neat ending.

A little boy "Laddie" (Jay North, from "Lassies") gives Josh eight cents to see if he can find Santa Clause. Josh isn't interested but two guys in the bar make it seem like he is to the kid, so the young guy goes home happy thinking Josh will do the job. Randall reluctantly (because he is a soft-hearted guy underneath) goes to the kid's house to explain to him but finds that's too tough an assignment.

He winds up hiring the town drunk to come out and play Santa Claus, so at least he and the parents will find out what special the kid keeps wanting but won't tell anyone but Santa. Of course, the drunk - despite promises he'll stay sober - gets tanked and.....well, I won't spoil the rest.
