The beloved special, first aired on ABC in 1970, will be screened at 8 pm Eastern and Pacific Standard Time, and 7 pm Central and Mountain.
The specials were shot in the “Animagic” stop-motion style, which is a feature of many of Rankin / Bass’s holiday productions, such as “Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer” and “Santa no Inai Christmas”.
The film tells the origin story of Krisklingle and features the voice of legendary actor Fred Astaire as narrator SD Kluger. Mickey Rooney who plays Chris Klingle / Santa Claus. Keenan Wynn as a winter warlock. And Paul Frees, who played various roles throughout the film.
Fred Astaire tells this timeless story of the future Santa Claus, Krisklingle, starting with an orphan baby who happened to be taken to the toy maker Klingle family.
As the name suggests, the dark city of Sonvertown is not a happy place, as Chris is run by a tyrannical burger Meister Meister Burger who does not allow toys to enter the town when all grows up. I am tasked with delivering toys to.
Chris Klingle found a way to beat the odds, but met a woman who would become Mrs. Klaus on the way, not before the entanglement of Burger Meister and Winter Warlock.
The specials also included many classic holiday songs, such as “put one foot in front of the other” and, of course, “Santa Claus is coming to town.”
