Am I alone in thinking that the Christmas TV special Santa Claus Is Coming To Town is more creepy than anything else? Is it some kind of Christmas-TV blasphemy to even say that? I know it’s a classic but the too-bright colors and weird animation style just doesn’t work for me. Strangely enough, I happen to love Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. Anyway, if you grew up loving this hour-long special, you’re in luck because ABC is airing Santa Claus is Coming To Town next week.

Set to air on Tuesday, December 2nd (8:00 -9:00 p.m. ET), the 1970 film features Fred Astaire as narrator and Mickey Rooney as the voice of Kris Kringle himself.
