1950s Merry Christmas

Santa Claus' North Pole Workshop and His Elves!
Merry Christmas (1950) Short Film, Black and White. We begin with a visit to the North Pole and as the camera zooms in the icy window, we see a great looking Santa Claus and his elves in the workshop making toys. There we meet Santa and his three elves Peppy, Zippo and Click. Were these poor elves named after cigarette lighters? It's possible since everyone were chain-smokers in 1950. The elves work at making and playing with toys as Santa reads the letters he's received from children around the 50s fashion world.
