Budget : $50m, Grossed over $100 million
Animal Rights activists protested at the premier about the use of reindeer for the 'loop the loop' section, thinking the production used real reindeer on a big dipper. Of course it was done with animation. What they didn't know was that 10 reindeer were saved from slaughter in Norway to be used in the film.
This movie has a good few taglines:
"Guess Who's Coming To Town"
"The Legend Comes To Life!"
"Seeing Is Believing!"
"Santa Claus. The Spirit Of Christmas. But Who Is He Really?"
Judy Cornwell, who plays Santa's wife, played Hyacinth Bucket's sister Daisy in British T.V. show "Keeping Up Appearances" from 1990 to 1995.
