What we have here is a classic animated Western story -featuring Santa Claus! Directed by Jeff Hale in 1963, The Great Toy Robbery is brought to you by the Film Board of Canada.
This movie has everything. A beautiful idiot who inadvertently saves the day. Toughened gangsters whose hearts are melted by teeny bears. A horse who listens to nobody. Funny sound effects. If you are in search of a Christmas tradition, I highly recommend this one.(via The Toast)
