Watched this on the train to work and as with all TM2YC edits you know what you are getting...quality. This was a fun way to re-watch Santa Claus the movie and the reasons behind the edit i can totally understand - i too was never enamoured by North Pole portion of the film. I personally would have trimmed the first sleigh ride with Santa...it just goes on for too long ...i know i'm a Grinch. All in all a good bit of festive fun with some top additional FX and a quality song as the credits roll.
