A puppet-animation feature, noted for artistic values and story line, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is based on a children's story by L. Frank Baum. In the Pagan tale, Santa grows old and nearer to his death, and the story of his life is relayed to immortals who must decide whether or not Santa Claus should be one of those who gets to live forever. Thus, the way Santa came to represent Christmas is explained from the time he was taken in as an orphan by the gods through the time he decided to make it his life's work to bring happiness to children by making and bringing them toys.
