A Family Tradition: Unintentionally Hilarious Christmas Classic
24 December 2020 | by Brantford_MarkSee all my reviews

Santa's Magic Kingdom is a 13 minute short film from 1964 that my family and I have been watching every Christmas since 1987. VHS tape was fairly new technology back then and my Mom gave us one for the kids to enjoy. We watched it with Grandma and tears were rolling down cheeks we laughed so hard! Still cracks me up to this day and each new generation seems to enjoy it as we premiere this classic for them. Not intended as a comedy, this is the most ambitious of K. Gordon Murray's famously awful Christmas trilogy. An expanded cast including Merlin, a menacing guy in a wolf suit, the Easter Bunny and of course Santa and his elves make this the pinnacle of his film career. There are even musical interludes with sincere elves singing their hearts out. He had some tax troubles in the 1970's and lost the copyright, so it's in the public domain. Go to the Internet Archive and you can legally download it if you wish. Enjoy!
