The Christmas Orange

This animated cable-TV special deftly illustrates the pitfalls of our over-litigous society. The "hero" of the piece is 6-year-old Anton Stingley, who awakens on Christmas morning to discover that Santa Claus has apparently ignored his 16-page, 600-item gift list, and has instead given Anton a single, solitary orange. Egged on by sourpuss lawyer Studpustle, Anton takes Santa to court, suing him for "breach of contract." The disillusioned old elf vows never to deliver another Christmas present--leaving it up to a chastened Anton to save the day. Based on the award-winning 1998 children's book written by Don Gillmor and illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay, The Christmas Orange originally aired December 9, 2002, as part of the ABC Family Channel's "25 Days of Christmas."
