The Night Before Christmas is an animated Silly Symphony that was released on December 9, 1933, following the previous year's Santa's Workshop.


In a loose adaptation of Clement C. Moore's famous poem, St. Nick is seen delivering the toys that he made in 1932's Santa's Workshop to a house full of sleeping children. The toys come alive, and they dance around and have fun. The kids awake to find a beautiful Christmas tree with lots of toys.
