Santa's Workshop is a Disney short film directed by Wilfred Jackson, first released on December 10, 1932[4] in the Silly Symphonies series. The film features Santa Claus and his elves preparing for Christmas in Santa's workshop. A sequel, The Night Before Christmas, partially based on A Visit from St. Nicholas, was made the year after, portraying Santa leaving the toys in a house with nine children.

In Sweden and Norway, Santa's Workshop is part of the Christmas television special From All of Us to All of You, traditionally shown at Christmas Eve. Various stereotypes in the film have been censored several times.[5]

The short features the first of the Marche Militaires by Franz Peter Schubert.
