Freeze Frame! - Mickey Under the Tree

Mickey Mouse toys were undoubtedly on the wish lists of countless children back in 1933. Disney artists payed homage to that notion with the appearance of this push-toy in that year's holiday-themed Silly Symphony The Night Before Christmas.

I remember this short being packaged with another Santa Silly Symphony. Even as a kid I remember the models for the two Santa's being oddly different in what seemed like one cartoon.

Does any body know the name of the other toon? It was set in Santa's workshop, kind of had a very 1930's design to it.

Mark, that other Xmas-themed Silly Symphony short is titled "Santa's Workshop".
