Where would we be without the great Dick Van Dyke?
21 December 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Nice to start my review with a rhetorical question. Anyway, the Town Santa Forgot is very well done. It has a great timeless message, never be greedy, and is really nice to watch. Sadly, I do confess this isn't a cartoon that I grew up with, I saw this for the first time today. And why did I want to see this? Because of Dick Van Dyke, I have always loved him. And I have to say he does a marvellous job as the voice of the narrator/grandpa(who begins and ends the cartoon). Others pros are the wonderful whimsical animation, the beautiful music and the heart warming ending. The story telling of a very spoiled brat called Jeremy Creek is very charming, and the script is both funny and poignant. My only qualm is that it does drag only slightly in the middle.

Other than that, this is a really nice watch. I do recommend it! 9/10 Bethany Cox
