Santa Claus is Comin' to Town

By DAVID WEINER

December 03, 2012

The Rankin-Bass favorite first debuted in 1970 and celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Dutifully answering practically question a kid might have about Christmas traditions and why Santa Claus does what he does, the stop-motion-animated special pits a young St. Nick (voiced by Mickey Rooney) against the nefarious Burgermeister Meisterburger and Winter Warlock (later tamed with the gift of a Choo-Choo) as he works overtime to deliver toys to a town where all playthings have been outlawed. Fred Astaire narrates and sings the title tune.
