      Comments about The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus / Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey:

      I grew up watching the Rankin/Bass productions every Christmas and still can not wait to see them. Unfortunately they show less & less of their work and I am glad to see that it is being offered for sale and I would like it if even more of their artistry was brought out of the film vaults. I remember my Mom putting me in front of the T.V for them, but always sat me in her lap or next to her for Nestor. I still tear up whenever I hear "Ears Nestor" and I'm almost 50...

          Hi-
          I am a huge fan of the Rankin/Bass Holiday specials! When I was growing up in Illinois, the Holidays were always made special because of these wonderful shows. And now thanks to Warner Archive, I was able to see over and over again! Thank you so much! Hope you can make available other Rankin/Bass shows!!!

              My daughter remembered this movie from her childhood. She is now 44 years old, and mentioned it as something she had enjoyed. I purchased it to play at our annual "Christmas movie viewing" at home and was delighted with both of the movies on the DVD.

                  The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus has always been a favorite of mine and I am sad it is not one that is not shown yearly. Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey just adds to the Christmas fun...
