I've often had the suspicion that Santa stages his "misfortunes" on purpose. By that, he creates an excuse, such as illness, injury, or amnesia, and then gets some random sucker to do his dirty work for him. I bet if I were Santa, I would pick the perfect patsy by getting some overly-naive dope who who loves Christmas so much, a materialistic spoiled brat, or some reluctant cynic, that way I would the ol' "teach them the true meaning of Christmas" shtick as an excuse.

great minds think alike!

This is probably the best Christmas flash I've seen this year! The voices were awesome. The best part was easily when Mrs. Claus was listing the other people who have helped Santa. Yeah, he is pretty lazy. Then again, that is a lot of houses to go through. Of course, the Flintstones took place before Christmas so that must have been really desperate.

I guess I was hoping for a more optimistic ending. It's still quite funny. The music worked well. The animation came off as really unique to me too. Merry Christmas of course!

Sorry I didn't give you a more optimistic ending but glad you enjoyed it just the same... and I appreciate the comment about my animation being unique, seriously this was a really positive read, thank you and Merry Christmas!!
