I recently purchased this DVD from Barnes and Noble and cannot get the sound to work on the movie. The picture comes on but no sound. This is the second DVD of this movie that I have bought with this problem.
Have you heard? Christmas has been cancelled! Santa Claus (voice of Mickey Rooney) believes that there is no Christmas spirit left in the world. Why deliver presents to children who don't even care? So old Saint Nicholas declares a sick day and decides to stay in bed. His elves Jingle Bells and Jangle Bells can't believe it. Mrs. Claus (voice of Shirley Booth), however, is determined to keep her husband's Christmas gift-giving tradition alive (whether he likes it or not!). Sorry, Santa, I've got to cheer for the "bad guys" this time because the scenes with the tall, cool Snow Miser fighting with his short, hot-tempered step-brother Heat Miser are the best part of the show! You can't help but sing along when the Misers sing their introductions ("I'm Mr. Heat Miser, I'm Mr. Sun.). And I love Snow Miser's chilly sense of humor. Snow Miser: "How's your hubby, Mrs. Claus?" Mrs. Claus: "He's got a bad cold, I'm afraid." Snow Miser: "He should've come to me. I would've given him a good one!" My family and I watch this show every year and it never gets old. Even viewers who think they're too old for Santa will enjoy this classic animated television special.
This is the best christmas story ever!!!
A classic that time cannot contain. This movie is great for all ages. I am a married man and love this film for its revival of my youth. Children will love the crazy twist to the story of Santa.
