It seems the children of Mars are all down in the dumps, what with watching all the spectacular holiday videos from Earth and all. The Martian leaders decide to kidnap Santa and bring him back, thus forcing the heavyset man’s goodwill and cheer upon the red planet, thus winning back the double hearts and minds of their children. An ingenious plan, but will it work? The original film has been edited down from almost 90 to just over 10 minutes in length, keeping just the galactically good parts!
A Max Fleischer classic color cartoon, in which two destitute children (of Olive Oyl’s sister?) are transported to a 3D land o’ plenty while they sleep. Fortunately enough, the kids wake up to a load of food and presents brought by local merchants.
Young siblings, Dick & Ann, are magically transported to the late 1950’s, where everything was red, and Santa lived in suburban splendor at the North Pole. Santa sends out a pushy elf in his famed ‘magic helicopter,’ to give kids a look inside his amazing world.
Santa knows who’s been naughty and who’s been nice, so he decides to treat kids in Any town, USA to a good old-fashioned violent puppet show. All the kids like it, except for one notable exception. Two puppets beating the stuffing out of each other really brings out the holiday spirit!
