Mickey Rooney: Kris Kringle, Santa Claus



  • Kris : You better watch out, better not cry, better not pout.

    Children : Why?

    Kris : I'm telling you why!

    Children : Yeah?

    Kris : 'Cause I came to town. And look what I brought!

    Children : Toys!

  • Burgermeister Meisterburger : Stop! In the name of the law! You brats are under arrest! Take them away.

    Kris : Don't arrest those children. It was my fault. I gave them the toys.

    Burgermeister Meisterburger : You? How dare you! You are obviously a nonconformist and a rebel!

    Kris : Me? Rebel?

    Burgermeister Meisterburger : Arrest this man immediately!

    Kris : [pulls out a toy]  For you.

    Burgermeister Meisterburger : [sputters]  A yo-yo? I love yo-yos! I used to be able to do all kinds of tricks! Ooh wheeeeeeeeee! Hoo hoo hoo hoo!

    [plays with the yo-yo] 

    Grimsley : Excuse me, sir, but you're breaking your own laws.

    Burgermeister Meisterburger : What? What are you saying?


    Burgermeister Meisterburger : Ooohh, I have been bamboozled! Arrest him! Arrest him!

  • Kris : Changing from bad to good's as easy as taking your first step.

  • Jessica : If the Burgermeister saw you, we would all be in real danger!

    Kris : In danger from toys?

  • Kris : Watch out for that dolly. She's a hardened criminal, I hear.

  • Kris : Look, uh, before you do me in, would you tell your tree friends to let me loose for a second? You see, I have something for you.

    Winter : What is this? A trick?

    Kris : Oh, no sir, Mr. Warlock. Or, may I call you Winter?

    Winter : Mr. Warlock if you please!

    Kris : Oh. Well, I managed to save one little toy and I'd like you to have it.

    Winter : You wish to give me... a present? A... a toy?

    Kris : Yes, sir.

    Winter : But, no one ever gives mean old Warlock a toy.

  • Kris : Come on. There's a lot more chimneys to explore tonight!

  • Narrator : Kris made a list of all the children and the toys they wanted. He checked it over once, then checked it over twice. He tried to figure out just who was naughty and who was nice.

    Kris : Well, I guess they're all pretty nice.
