I watched the MST3K version of Santa Claus, man that was a trip and not just the guys making comments, the whole movie is a trip in its own right. Definately check it out for some laughs.

It's almost as if these movies were made soley for the purpose of showing up on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The Magic Christmas Tree is not the weirdest, but probably the worst Christmas movie ever.  Here is the tagline from the trailer, "You'll want to see the happy witch, the greedy giant, the runaway lawnmower!"  I watch the trailer every year.

I've thought for awhile that the time is ripe for a remake of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. It would make an excellent CG animated movie by someplace like Dreamworks. Done in a similar style as the Shrek movies with tongue in cheek humor for adults I could see it as a hit.

@Svaragog - I know, right? It's like they knew a man and his robots would need solid holiday riffing material in the not to distant future.

@DarthBob - I'm totally adding that to my wacky trailer YouTube playlist. Thanks man!

The only way to watch these movies is the MST3K/Rifftrax way. I've only seen Santa Claus conquers the martians and Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny with the riffs, but I did buy a copy of Santa Claus before I even knew MST3K had a version of it.

That is one terrible movie, and slightly different from the MST3K version. there is no children's choir scene in the beginning of my version, but it does have an extra scene with Santa and Merlin, with Merlin describing the gadgets he's giving to Santa to take on his trip. Kind of like a James Bond and Q scene if those scenes sucked.

 Just first saw part of Santa Claus this year and wow, is that a weird movie! A Chistmas movie in which a horned devil gets more screen time than Santa...
Something I always found interesting about Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is that it is virtually the only movie to show Santa smoking a pipe, as he was described for many many years. He's puffing constanly on one here.

Remake "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" and get Arnold Schwarzenegger on board to star!
