About this item
"The Spirit of Christmas" is composed of two classic Christmas stories performed entirely with Marionettes. The first story, "Twas the Night Before Christmas", is based on Clement C. Moore's familiar poem about Santa Claus' visit. The second, "The Greatest Story Ever Told", tells the story of the birth of Christ. Both stories are beautifully recited and staged with musical backgrounds in classic and traditional style. The marionettes created for this '50s TV Christmas classic represented the cutting edge of creativity in puppeteering at the time and may have provided inspiration for future successes like "Howdy Doody", "Kukla Fran & Ollie", and much later the Jim Henson family of characters. These classic Christmas tales will be enjoyed by young and old alike. Children will discover them and adults will rediscover the warmth and charm of these classics.
