Great Toy Robbery (1963) Christmas cartoon

Recently discovered this rocking Canadian Christmas cartoon from 1963. Animated and scored in a very swinging, early 60s manner, this short incorporated Santa into a wild west theme and is a Christmas treat. Also created by Jeff Hale (as well as Norman McLaren, Gerald Potterton and Grant Munro) in 1963 is the second bonus cartoon - Christmas Cracker.

  1. I love the Great Toy Robbery. I haven't seen it in years. Never saw the other one. Thanks for posting these. Have a nice week. Cheers!

  2. Cool to have you checking in on the Great Toy Robbery. Did you catch it on tv? Both of these Canadian animated shorts were new to me. Great vids!
