twas the night before christmasAnother wonderful Christmas movie from the team of Rankin/Bass inspired by the Clement Moore of the same name. The animation, story and songs are sweet and engaging.

THE STORY

For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas a fraudulent myth!

The skeptical rodent Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses and learn to think not only with his head but with his heart. How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa’s jolly return to Junctionville — and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable.
