    The movie has an avalanche of eye-popping visual effects, including a bustling Santa's village, nifty "Jimmy Neutron"-type gadgets and "Stars Wars"-like igloo walking robots - and, of course, the requisite heartwarming happy ending.

    The lively visuals, busy story, zippy pace and TV show running time will make this go down very easily with the target moppet audience.
  3. Santa Claus and the Snowman stage a scaled-down "Star Wars"-type battle for the rights to Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve in the pleasantly goofy, irreverent Santa vs. the Snowman.
  4. This is sweet-natured fun for the very young.

    If you're out shopping with the brood and need a 40-minute break, you could do worse.
  6. Dazzling in its possibilities, but the holiday message of the 37-minute Santa vs. the Snowman leaves a lot to be desired.

    Jonathan Winters voices Santa with no edge whatsover, while Ben Stein deadpans a droll tour guide.
