For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas "a fraudulent myth!" The skeptical rodent Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses "and let up a little on the wonder why." How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa's jolly return to Junctionville -- and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable inspired by Clement Moore's poem. Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel are featured voices. Approx. 23 minutes. Year: 1974I'd never seen this movie before, so it was fun to discover it alongside my kids. We all thought the mice were cute and liked the story a lot. I also liked the bonus feature on this title, Christmas: A Global Holiday. It's a nice little introduction to Christmas traditions in other countries of the world. The Night Before Christmas is available for purchase now, both as a DVD and as a DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack.
