RiffTrax Live! Santa Claus now available on VOD!

From the strange and ridiculously colorful world of K. Gordon Murray comes the 1959 Holiday classic Santa Claus. Made in Mexico and dubbed into glorious English, Santa Claus tells the story of, well, Santa Claus, who lives in a big white castle above us in Geosynchronous Orbit and watches over us all in a way that would make the NSA jealous. It’s Christmas Eve, and on Earth poor little Lupita wishes for a doll. Santa hears her wish and prepares for his yearly visit, helped by the heavily medicated Merlin the Wizard and Santa’s unintentionally creepy mechanical reindeer.

But wait, who’s that trying to foil Santa’s plans and ruin Christmas? It’s the Devil of course, who sends his leotard-bedecked demon Pitch to turn the children against Santa and ruin Christmas. Pitch endlessly plots, and fails, to thwart Santa’s magical ride. The tension mounts - will Santa be able to foil Pitch and his minions, will he save Christmas and get poor Lupita her doll? The answer is Yes, of course, this is a Christmas movie, people! Come on!

Bathtub house!  You specifically faked me into believing this would be released near Christmas.   You're on double secret probation.

Judging by the trailer, this copy of Santa Claus was a much better print than the one used by MST3K all those years ago. It isn't nearly so grainy and dirty.

They just ran an older version of the theme song during Santa Claus.

Thank you!

Added: Do they need an updated version of the opening video? I have one.  I bought it at some place called "Rifftrax.com"  8)

Just watching this one now. The riff is great, but goddamn the color is terrible! The reds are so over saturated it's ridiculous.
