It badly botches what a Christmas special should be, and is worth watching mainly for unintentional laughs.
Mr. Baum's peculiar vision can be filled with all sorts of deliciously scarifying elements, but the underlying theme is unfailingly comforting.
Lacks the lighthearted charm of the earlier specials, but makes up for it in its tight plot and the best Animagic the studio ever did.
This is something like Rankin/Bass's fifth attempt to tell the back-story of the jolly old elf. But there's something so pleasingly goofy about Santa wandering into scenes that might as well be ripped from the pages of Marvel Comics.
It's Rankin/Bass doing high fantasy in ways they never did before, the stop-motion is smooth and gorgeous, and it's worth seeking out just for how strange it is.
The special is peppered with dazzling characters courtesy of Baum's highly inventive imagination, coupled with terrific stop-motion animation that brings the marvelous characters to life in extraordinary ways.
Seems like it was written by somebody who never heard of Santa Claus before. It's like a knock-off action figure at a dollar store: parts of it look vaguely familiar, yet it's all inherently wrong.
Animated tale is heavy on fantasy, has some scariness.
