Not so long ago
And not very far
Lived a jolly young man
With a lowrider car

His name it was Felix
Navidad was his name
And he was known ’round the world
So great was his fame

He was just a man
Just like you or like me
He couldn’t fly through the air
Or walk on the sea

But his heart it was big
And his soul knew no cages
And wherever he went
He brought gifts for all ages

He didn’t have elves
Way up at the North Pole
But he knew lots of Hopi
Maya, Navaho and Huichol [Mas…]

Here’s maybe the most famous scene from K. Gordon Murray’s English dub of the low-budget live-action Mexican classic Santa Claus vs Satan. In this scene, which has given kids nightmares for years, Lupita’s dreams are interrupted by the Devil. Santa is able to peep the action from his cloud in outer space thanks to the dream-scope, created by Merlin the Magician.

Here’s the full movie AND the MST3K TV version: [Mas…]
