The Year Without a Santa Claus (1974)
Day 3 keeps the animation train going with Rankin/Bass stop-motion special about the year that Santa got SICK and he had to CANCEL Christmas. Imagine that. Crazy. Seriously though this is actually the movie that shows that even the big bearded bastard, try saying that three times fast, can be a passive aggressive little bitch sometimes. In it’s defense the songs are less problematic than Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town and by this point the Rankin/Bass animation team had the process down so the scale feels big while retaining that classic christmas special crappy animation we’ve grown to love. So look around your house for some shit to gift to Santa ‘cause milk and cookies ain’t getting his fat ass out of bed THIS year.
