| 1994 Santa Claus with Jack Perkins
Hi. Is this 1994 version with Jack Perkins available on DVD? I have an old, worn VHS copy and would like to get a DVD, if possible. It is a great presentation and explores a more in-depth history of St. Nicholas than other DVD copies do. If this is available, please contact me at

This presentation by Jack Perkins illustrates the history of Santa Claus.

Also in the production is Martin Ebon, Father George Passias and also many of the old cartoons from 1933 and 1947.

Of particular interest is Santa's Surprise from 1947 in which 7 young children, all from different cultures, surprise Santa by sneaking into his house and cleaning it.
