That’s right folks! Santa Claus is coming to town, and this time, he’s being followed by the toy-hating Burgermeister Meisterburger and the Winter Warlock.
Watch Santa Claus in this epic classic go from an orphaned child raised by elves, to a young man who is not allowed delivering toys, to a complete toy giving king of Christmas. You’ll also get to see Mrs. Claus as his wife and hear her name for the first time (Jessica).
This classic has many wonderful messages that every kid will love and understand. It’s one of love and courage. Doing things that are right, no matter the obstacles.
It’s a must have and see for any generation full of xmas spirits and joy. The older generation will feel nostalgic and reminisce of their youth, while the newer generation will be awe-inspired and incredibly in love with the parents that gave them this gift.
