* LiveActionAdaptation: The 2006 TV movie with John Goodman as Santa, [[DesigningWomen Delta Burke]] as Mrs. Claus, [[ThisIsSpinalTap Michal McKean]] as Snow Miser, Harvey Fierstein as Heat Miser, and Carol Kane as Mother Nature. Among other famous faces. Despite rather dramatic changes from the original story (such as Iggy's father and the mayor of Southtown becoming a CompositeCharacter and Santa Claus negotiating with the Miser Brothers instead of Mrs. Claus), it still retained [[EarWorm those SONGS.]]

'''''The Year Without a Santa Claus''''' is a StopMotion puppet-animated (called "Animagic") [[ChristmasSpecial holiday special]] by Creator/RankinBassProductions that debuted in 1974. This time, SantaClaus (voiced by Mickey Rooney, reprising the role from 1970's ''WesternAnimation/SantaClausIsCominToTown'') decides to take a holiday from Christmas when he becomes convinced that nobody really cares anymore. In an effort to get Christmas back on, Mrs. Claus (voiced by Shirley Booth) sends a pair of elves out to find enough Christmas spirit left in the world to make Santa change his mind. HilarityEnsues, contributed to in no small part by the memorable obstructiveness of the climate-ruling Miser Brothers, Snow Miser (Dick Shawn) and Heat Miser (George S. Irving).

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAttribute: During the intro song, Mrs. Claus explains how sad the children were that Santa wasn't coming, because they thought he had died. Cue the lyric "Every eye shed a blue Christmas tear" and a shot of a child crying. However, although a tear does obligingly roll down the child's face, the child is ''smiling''.
** This is likely because they didn't have any puppets of children with a sad face on hand, and for whatever reason decided that a smiling child with a single tear would do just as well.
