Christmas Cracker (French: Caprice de Noël) is a 1963 animated short about Christmas, co-directed by Norman McLaren, Gerald Potterton, Grant Munro and Jeff Hale. The film consists of three segments: a rendition of "Jingle Bells" in which cutout animation figures dance, a dime-store rodeo of tin toys and a story about decorating the perfect Christmas tree with a Christmas star. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada, this film without words garnered seven awards including the prize for Best Animated Short at the 1964 San Francisco International Film Festival and a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 37th Academy Awards.
