    Is it the one where all the oprhaned kids toys break as soon as they play with them and they all go back to bed and cry. Betty Boops grampy is walking by and hears them crying and dresses up like Santa and goes in and starts building them toys out of household goods? As well as a Christmas tree?and they sing"christmas comes but once a year now its here, now it's here bringing lots of joy and cheer tra la la la la" If it's this one it's from the 30s and called "Christmas comes but once a year" if not im not sure :) It isn't exactly what you described but it seems close.

    here is a youtube of it

      I saw one that sounds a lot like that.
      In the one I saw, all these orphans live in a big house and they're crying about not having any toys for Christmas. This old bum hears them, so he puts on a santa suit, and makes toys out of pieces of their house. he basically tears their house to pieces, to make them toys. But they don't care. I guess they're rather have toys than a working oven or a bathtub. Is that the same one?

            Sounds like the Fleischer cartoon "Christmas Comes But Once A Year" from 1936.

              Whoah, that's right.
              I went and watched that silly crap on youtube just now.
              God, what a weird cartoon.

                That cartoon is pretty easy to find. It's on all those $1-2 public domain Christmas cartoons DVDs.
