Countdown to Christmas: Top 30 Christmas Films(or Specials)

          
                                               #17-Santa Claus is Coming To Town
This Rankin-Bass special is one of my favorite and I love the stop-animation. Long before there was Computer Generated Images(CGI) there was stop animation.
Stop animation is where you take the object and move it slightly, take a picture then move and repeat once you have all the images when you play them at regular speed they move.
 Probably the best known for this is the legendary Ray Harryhausen(amongst the die hard fans).




  Fred Astaire narrates the story and sings the title song.


       This is an enjoyable show and is fun for all ages.
