Yes Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus (1974)

I saw this one posted at Classic Television Showbiz and I'll be darned if I haven't seen this show in over thirty years. It was a staple of Christmas tv programming for kids back in my day and was based on a New York Sun editorial from 1897! The animated special was created by Bill Melendez, a name that should sound familiar to Cool-Mo-Dee fans as the creator of most of the animated Peanuts specials, including A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS and IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN CHARLIE BROWN. Melendez passed away in 2008.
