She shows Claus what she's done and the toys demonstrate their abilities. The toys are distraught when Claus says they must be turned back into inanimate objects in time for Christmas, but the Fairy Snow Queen comes up with a plan to make everyone happy.

Something Weird Brings the Disturbing
29 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short appears to have been done in LA in 51, some of the actors went on to very limited acting careers and the ultra disturbing Jack-in-the-box Don Oreck had a somewhat successful one. This short may have been created for early TV in the LA Market. It is included in "Something Weird Videos" quite excellent "Retro Christmas" collection.

A fairy Snow Queen (who's value system is all based on the potential "fun" in any act) brings some toys to life as rather petty revenge on Santa for forgetting to give her her sugar cookie. Minor complications ensue.

If you like the strange, retro, black and white and somehow just wrong aspects of the Christmas season, this is for you in a big way. Don't miss it.
