8. ''Twas the Night Before Christmas' (1974)

What would happen if a talking mouse wrote a letter to the local newspaper trash-talking Santa and signed it "From, All of Us"? You can bet your presents that Kris Kringle would bypass your town. That's the premise of this Rankin/Bass animated special, set around the turn of the 19th century, in which that smart-alecky mouse's father and a local human clockmaker team up to make a magnificent musical clock tower to convince Santa to visit. Men and mice working together for the common good? Only at Christmas!
