* A few TV specials suggest Santa air drops some or many of his gifts while flying over houses, as one way of speeding up delivery of his packages to everyone (without having to physically go into every home). This is seen in a few of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' Christmas specials, plus the end credits of ''RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer''.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' 2014 Christmas special "Last Christmas" plays with this trope. At one point Santa claims that his sleigh is BiggerOnTheInside. [[spoiler: Averted in that Santa is only part of an elaborate series of nested dreams. [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Or is he?]]]]

-->'''Santa:''' There's not just one Santa delivery team. How could there be? There are five hundred and twenty six million four hundred and three thousand and twelve children all expecting presents before tomorrow morning. So, hmm, that's twenty two million children per hour. It's impossible! Obviously, I've got a second sledge.

Added DiffLines:

* Discussed in ''Franchise/ArchieComics''; In one story, Dilton posits that Santa is actually a hyper-advanced robot, but the others aren't impressed. With Chuck making sketches, the Riverdale gang makes their own guesses on what kind of person Santa could be. They determine that He'd have to be a younger, skinnier man in order to make his worldwide trip, have a long nose to smell out the cookies kids leave him, and be squinty-eyed in order to see in the dark. Much to everyone's surprise, the result comes out looking like Jughead!

Interestingly, most fiction questions ONLY how the toys are delivered, not how so many adults (even in the worlds of fiction) can fail to notice the toys, and thus not believe in him.

Added DiffLines:

* Brought up in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' during "Human Error". Ratchet dismisses the whole thing as impossible, while Prowl and Optimus suggest "multiple Santas" (Optimus having seen plenty of guys in costume while driving through Detroit).
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', Fred asks the elves this while filling in for Santa (and air-dropping presents down chimneys). They reply that they don't take coffee breaks.

* In ''Film/TheSantaClaus'' Scott spends time talking with Charlie about how Santa is able to deliver presents to every child in the world. Charlie points out that there are children that don't celebrate Christmas, and that a fireplace kind of appears magically in homes without one. Scott soon finds out Charlie was at least right about the fireplace thing.

* In the direct-to-video movie ''Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas'' Goofy and Max's neighbor Pete points out that there is no way Santa can exist because he simply cannot deliver all those presents in one night. Subverted because Goofy and Max aren't trying to find out how Santa delivers the presents, but rather to just find out if he exists. They do finally meet Santa at the end of the story who gives them just what they want, and Pete the lesson of his life for messing with their Christmas spirit.
