Santa’s Work­shop

In keep­ing with the hol­i­day spirit, today’s Car­toon of the Day is Santa’s Work­shop. From the mid­dle of the Silly Sym­phonie series, this short was pro­duced in Tech­ni­color, and directed by Wil­fred Jackson.

Santa is assigned by his elves in prepa­ra­tion for the famous sleigh ride on Christ­mas Eve. As Santa reads off the list of good or bad boys and girls, the elves go about con­struct­ing the toys and mak­ing things ready for Santa’s long trip. As the toys are fin­ished, they come to life, and they march into Santa’s big bag.

Because they are con­sid­ered polit­i­cally incor­rect, sev­eral scenes are deleted from cur­rent video releases: one in which dolls are fright­ened by a spi­der, so their hair sticks up on end and gets curled; a stereo­typ­i­cal black doll say­ing “Mammy”; and a black doll rid­ing a don­key cart.
