Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town stands as the best of the stop-motion animated Christmas classics. Featuring the talents of Fred Astaire, Mickey Rooney, and the Westminster Children's Choir, this feature is excellently cast. The story is particularly clever in creating an origin story that interweaves and explains all the elements of the Santa Claus mythology: the red suit, flying reindeer, Christmas stockings, etc. The animation is especially well-done and is charming in an old-fashioned way. Additionally, the music plays well with the story and adds to its enjoyment. Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town is an enjoyable romp that sparks the magic of childhood.
