A classic holiday special produced by Rankin-Bass. Fred Astaire stars as Kris Kringle and Santa Claus as well as the narrator of the tale, who goes to tell the story of why Santa makes toys, wears a red suit, and lives at the North Pole. The special was produced with Animagic stop-motion animation where the characters were made out of wood and plastic and animated with stop-motion photography. A timeless classic, you can still find it airing on TV every holiday season.
