Did you ever wonder where Santa Claus came from? Well, the delightful story of Santa Claus is Comin' to Town, released by Rankin-Bass in 1970, tells the tale.
S.D. (special delivery) Krueger, the mailman and narrator, answers some of the most common questions about Santa Claus.
He tells the story of a small baby named Kris who was left on the doorstep of the Kringle family. When Kris grew up, he wanted to deliver toys to the children in the nearby town of Sombertown. But the town's Burgermeister Meisterburger is too mean to let that happen. There is also a wizard named Winter Warlock who lived between the Kringle's home and Sombertown. But soon Kris melted the hearts of both and was allowed to deliver the toys. He also met the future Mrs. Claus, a schoolteacher named Jessica.
