The Year Without a Santa Claus
Mrs. Santa Claus tells the story of the year that Santa Claus, feeling ill and unwanted, decided to take a holiday. But when the elves show Santa all the toys they are preparing--and the children eagerly awaiting Christmas--Santa dons his red suit and drives his gift-laden sleigh for his annual rounds in this stop-motion animated family special.
