Episode 123: The Life & Adventures of Santa Claus

Welcome to Holiday Season 2021! It’s been a long year, but we’re determined to send this one out with a bang!

On this week’s episode, we attempt to explain the weirdo madness of Rankin/Bass’s 1985 special The Life & Adventures of Santa Claus! Based on a story written by “Wizard of Oz” author L. Frank Baum, this special features a council of immortal wood nymphs, an army of invisible trolls, and an elf that may or may not have inspired a character in The Legend of Zelda. Oh, and somewhere in all that there’s the origin story of Santa Claus.

Also in this week’s show, we take some time to sample a few holiday libations, break down what it means to be a Christmas movie, and share our pitches for The Christmas Chronicles 3!
