Santa Claus: The Movie (1985)

Santa Claus is recruited to be Santa Claus. Then I think maybe Dudley Moore steals his sleigh. Presumably Santa gets the sleigh back and Dudley Moore learns a lesson, but it might be that Dudley Moore is trampled by reindeer. All copies of this movie in all media have been lost forever, so we'll never know.

Yep. Dudley Moore.


  1. I remember this movie! Dudley Moore is a "modern" elf who makes a machine to assemble toys, but they fall apart once kids use them. People give up on Santa and buy John Lithgow's magical but poisonous candy instead. Dudley Moore leaves the North Pole in shame and ends up helping a homeless kid move in with a rich girl in New York. At the end John Lithgow floats away from eating too much candy.

  2. Hahaha, wow, thanks for filling in the blanks (or the one big blank that is the entire movie). So but Dudley Moore is redeemed? And what's Lithgow's game? He sounds like the bad guys in Halloween III.
