Santa Claus is Coming To Town

Watching the old Santa Claus is coming to town, Rankin Bass special.  We already watched the Twas the Night Before Christmas cartoon this afternoon.
The Burgermeister!
I always loved this Santa Claus special.  Maybe it had something to do with the romance with a young Mrs. Claus.
And peril.  Even in these Christmas specials there is peril.  In a Jack Frost Rankin Bass, there was an evil man who captured Jack's love interest.  Jack good lord was human for a little bit and was called Jack Snip and posed as a tailor.  And then there was a love triangle where a handsome knight came in and stole his love interest away from him.  And of course Jack Frost decided to turn back into himself.

I missed Nester the Long Earred Donkey.

It seemed like one year when my kids were little, we must have watched all the Rankin Bass christmas specials.  There were quite a lot of them.

I'm leaving for my house soon, and am going to find my Its a Wonderful Life movie and watch Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed.  It's one of my all time favorites.  I love the old classics.

There's nothing like an old black and white movie.  I grew up on them.

Still watching  the Santa Claus special.  Wow!  Mrs. Claus was a singer!  I forgot that song and all the psychedelic stuff in the background.  There was definitely a 70's style that got forced into that special.
