Movie Info

This strange children's film was partially directed by exploitation filmmaker Barry Mahon (The Beast That Killed Women).

Eventually, a man in a bunny suit gets Santa's mission operational again, bringing

Audience Reviews for Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny

Wow oh wow oh wow. Santa's sled gets stuck in the Florida sand. After the neighborhood children fail to get him out using their livestock (?), the Ice Cream Bunny (I guess) comes in a fire truck to save Christmas. In the middle, Santa pauses to tell the kids a story, and we watch an entirely different short movie (complete with credits): it looks like a high-school production of the fairy tale "Thumbellina"! Shot like a home movie with horrible children's singing and a dud of a Santa, the whole mess is actually terribly depressing, and may put you off Christmas for a while. A short list candidate for the worst movie ever made; it makes you admire the professionalism and continuity of PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE.
