The Shanty Where Santy Claus Lives

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Shanty Where Santy Claus Lives is a 1933 Christmas-themed Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies animated short film directed by Rudolf Ising.[1] The short was released on January 7, 1933.[2]

It makes use of a Great Depression setting of Christmas where Santa Claus is seeking shelter.[3] The short takes place at a shantytown; hence the name "The Shanty Where Santy Claus Lives".


On Christmas Eve, a sad and lonely boy walks past a church and listens to the people inside sing "Silent Night". He walks past a house, and watches the people celebrate Christmas with their family. Suddenly, a gust of wind blows, knocks him against the wall of a nearby tool shed, and covers him in snow. When he returns home, the boy opens his stocking, and discovers nothing inside. As he lies in a chair there crying, he hears the sound of sleigh bells ringing. He goes by the window, and sees that it's Santa Claus! The boy joins Santa for some holiday fun in the shanty where he lives, since the boy has been good all year.

The joy in Santa's shanty includes singing toys, a jazz band, and a singing doll (some albeit blackface). Eventually, a Christmas tree catches fire, and everybody does what they can to put it out. The boy manages to put out the fire by connecting a hose to bagpipes, squirting the tree, and putting out the fire.[4] Everybody cheers as the cartoon ends.
