Funny: Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town

  • The Burgermeister falling down the stairs because of a toy duck. The choppiness of the animation is the best part of the gag: each of his limbs goes limp one after the other with a significant delay, all the while he has this slack-jawed, bug-eyed look of agony on his face.
  • The That Reminds Me of a Song that Jessica sings which is completely irrelevant to the plot, but is still funny because of the 1960's acid colors.
    • And the delightfully cheesy "animation" trick they used to let her look at her reflection in the water; the animators stuck a photograph of her at the bottom of the fountain. Which remains completely stationary even as she sings.
  • The Running Gag with people criticizing Kris' clothes. When it's brought up a second time, he responds with this:
  • The sheer amount of Narm Charm in the film.
  • The "No More Toymakers to the King" reprise is pretty funny—the Burgermeister gets so damn worked up over the toys.
  • "Uh, Winter, please."
  • "Excuse me, Sir, but you're breaking your own law."
    • Proceeded by one of the most fantastic out-of-character moments of all time:
    Burgermeister: What th...a yo-yo? I LOVE yo-yos! I used to be able to do all kinds of tricks! WHEEEEE! Hahahaha!
    • Meanwhile, the kids are watching the toy in question go up and down with blank expressions.
  • "[The South Pole] is on the other end of the Earth — you're just about as lost as you can get."
  • This exchange:
    Grimsley: Herr Burgermeister! Herr Burgermeister! Look what was discovered on your front stoop!
    Burgermeister: What? What, Grimsley? The milk? The daily paper?
    Grimsley: No, sir. A baby.
    Burgermeister: Oh, is that all. (gasps and chokes) A BABY?!
    • What really sells it are the gasping and choking noises the Burgermeister makes along with the Spit Take when he hears the news.
