A narrator sings the opening stanzas of the classic poem while we see the house at rest. Santa lands on the roof, comes down the chimney, and opens his bag. The toys march out and decorate the tree, with the toy soldiers shooting balls from their cannon, a toy airplane stringing a garland like skywriting, and the toy firemen applying snow. A blimp delivers the star to the top. Meanwhile, Santa fills the stockings. His laughter awakens the children, who sneak out. The toys rush to their places, and Santa escapes up the chimney just in time. The closing verse is sung.Written by

The clown dolls somewhat resemble Koko the Clown, a silent cartoon star from Max Fleischer. See more »
There's the more recent cut and the original uncut version of the short. The uncensored version features a short scene where some soot falls on the face of a blond boy. This makes him look like he's in blackface and the scene is played for laughs. See more »
A bit dated, but holds up well after seventy years.
While the cartoon does have a dated feel to it in spots, the animation is excellent (a Disney strength during the 1930s) and it still largely works for the most part, although probably not as well for the age group raised on jump-cut, fast-pace edits and Matrix style special effects. Well worth watching. Recommended.
