Watch "Santa Claus is Comin to Town" with the kids tonight!

No wonder they call this the most magical time of the year – every night seems to bring a new holiday special for your kids to watch! Tonight it’s “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” on ABC at 8 p.m. Less famous than “Frosty” and less profound than “Charlie Brown Christmas,” it’s still an unappreciated gem that the whole family can enjoy. Keep reading for some history and video!

It tells the story of young Kris Kringle and how he becomes Santa Claus. The 1970 special was produced by Rankin-Bass, the same company that did “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Recognize the narrator’s voice? That’s Fred Astaire. And Kris Kringle is voiced by Mickey Rooney.

Here’s a sneak peek video. Did you watch tonight? Did your kids like it?
