Twas the Night Before Christmas (1974)

Movie Summary

Santa Claus is offended by an anonymous letter printed in the town’s newspaper (and signed “all of us”) claiming that he doesn’t exist. In response, Santa returns the entire town’s letters to them unopened. Upon reading the anonymous letter printed in the newspaper, Father Mouse immediately suspects that his brainy, college student son Albert is its author. The skeptical rodent must be persuaded to change his tune to pave the way for Santa’s jolly return to Junctionville.

Twas the Night Before Christmas originally premiered on CBS December 8, 1974.

    “Twas the Night before Christmas” is my favorite as a child. Too bad it is only on once during the holidays.

    Agreed! Twas the Night before Christmas has been a Christmas show tradition my entire life as well. It would be nice if I had a better time slot than on Christmas morning at 8:30.
