Kris Kringle

"You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is Coming to Town."

Here's Kris Kringle (aka Santa Claus), from one of Rankin/Bass's hit holiday specials, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". ;) I have to admit; the film was one of my favorite holiday specials while I was growing up with Rankin/Bass holiday special. :nod:

As for Mickey Rooney (before he voiced Todd the fox (as an adult) from Disney's "Fox and the Hound" ), I think so far he did a pretty good job for voicing Kris Kringle during the short. Heck, from Kris's character, I say that he has a good sense of humor, with full of joy for giving others some gifts. ;) Kris is such a cool character when he was young, and still is when he became Santa Claus. ;)

Eh, forgive for this drawing, though. I could've done better in the drawing, but.... I kinda messed up. XP I did my best for using the references, especially for the shoulder. Even though I drew him, he almost reminded me of one of my old friends back in middle school. XD Can't tell you why, though. :XD:

Anway, hope you enjoy this pic. Happy Holidays!

I don't know if it's true, but I think that the young adult version of Kris (right here) is a caricature of Mickey Rooney himself.

You don't say? XD
Even though this pic was based on the references from the original film, but I never knew it was a caricature of the actor who voiced him. Didn't realized that until you mentioned it. XD
