Naturally, as a Rankin/Bass series, doing an adaptation of a Christmas story was inevitable. The ninth episode of the series was A Christmas Tree, loosely based on the 1850 short story written by Charles Dickens. Based upon the famous 1823 poem A Visit from St. Nicholas Clement Clarke Moore, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas was the next attempt by Rankin/Bass to turn a classic Christmas story into a special. Set in the fictional town of Junctionville, New York (based on the city where Moore spent his final years: Newport, Rhode Island), the story opens with the narrator, clockmaker assistant Father Mouse, stirring at night, unable to sleep.

Title: 'Twas the Night Before Christmas (TV Movie 1974). One Christmas season, the human and mouse citizens of a small town get their letters to Santa unceremoniously returned, with a message that the town has been removed from Santa's delivery itinerary because of a letter from someone in that town that insulted him by dismissing his existence. While Father Mouse confronts his cynical son Albert, the letter's writer, their human companions, a clockmaker and his family, work to regain Mr. Claus' favor.

He speaks not a word, just a nod and a wave, There’s an exchange of glances and the boys all behave, A leather gloved finger on the side of a nose, Then the crack of a whip and the old elf just goes. And then back to reality, everything sorted, Back home to the hangars, a crisis averted.
