Due to the success of the 1947 original, the story has been adapted three times for television and once as a Broadway [[TheMusical musical]] (''Here's Love''). The most notable television version was released in 1973 and starred Sebastian Cabot as Kris, Jane Alexander as Mrs. Walker, and David Hartman as the lawyer boyfriend, with a lot of smaller roles being filled by 1970s TV mainstays such as Tom Bosley playing the judge. There was a theatrically-released remake in 1994 written by Creator/JohnHughes. Richard Attenborough was cast as Kris Kringle, Elizabeth Perkins as Dorey Walker, and Creator/MaraWilson as Susan.

* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: All versions are on the side of Romanticism, of course. In particular, Susan and Mrs. Walker always start off on Team Enlightenment before their CharacterDevelopment converts them to Team Romanticism.

* [[FantasyForbiddingFather Fantasy Forbidding Mother]]: In all versions, Doris is the reason her daughter doesn't believe in Santa Claus. This is a much more positive example of this Trope; she only wants her daughter to see things practically and not grow up to be naive.
