"Family Business"

What You Need To Know:

In the first three episodes of THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two, Scott Calvin comically trains his son to succeed him as Santa Claus. The problem is, Cal is afraid of heights and has some crazy ideas about the future. Meanwhile, Scott’s teenage daughter, Sandra, has problems dealing with her new magical North Pole powers. Neither Scott nor his wife, Carol, understand what’s happening. Also, a set of accidents unleashes the worst Santa who ever lived, a man from the 15th Century named Magnus Antas. Released from the prison where the elves trapped him, the Mad Santa wants to reignite his North Pole powers and take control.

The first three episodes of THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two have many funny, entertaining, heartwarming scenes. Tim Allen’s wisecracks as Santa Claus and as a father are hilarious. He also exudes lots of warmth, however. THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two has a pro-family worldview with positive references to Christmas. However, Scott’s daughter starts taking lessons in witchcraft from the local witch. This becomes a major subplot in the third episode of THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two.

More Detail:

The first three episodes of THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two shows Scott Calvin comically trying to train his son to take over the role of Santa Claus while a set of unexpected circumstances unleashes the worst Santa who ever lived, a man named Magnus Antas, from the prison that the elves managed to trap him centuries ago. The first three episodes of THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two have many funny, entertaining and heartwarming scenes, but a subplot occurs in Episode Two and especially Episode Three where Scott’s daughter, is taking lessons in witchcraft from the local witch at the North Pole.

The second season opens with Scott Calvin naming his son, Cal, to succeed him as Santa Claus. The only problem is, Cal is afraid of heights. Meanwhile, the head elf, Betty, is forced to take a vacation for the first time in centuries. Betty names Edie (“Ee-Dee”) to take over for her, but Gary, the head of security, is turning out to be a handful.

Scott starts trying to train Cal. His daughter, Sandra, who works with Santa’s reindeer, is having problems handling her new magical powers, which let her hear everything every animal at the North Pole is saying. He parents don’t understand what she’s going through. Also, she’s becoming estranged from her mother, Carol, aka Mrs. Clause. So, Sandra turns to the local witch, the eccentric La Befana.

Back on Earth, Kris Kringle, the owner of a failing North Pole attraction, accidentally breaks a magical Nutcraker artifact, which unleashes the “worst Santa” who ever lived, a man from the 15th Century named Magnus Antas, aka “the Mad Santa.” The elves rebelled against his tyrannical rule and converted him into the magical artifact. Magnus gets help from a mean little ogre named Olga, who tries to help him come into contact with North Pole magic so that he can return there and assume power.

The elves have been keeping the story of the Mad Santa from Scott and his family, but Mrs. Claus is tracking down the secret.

The first three episodes of THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two have many funny, entertaining, heartwarming scenes. As usual, Tim Allen’s wisecracks as Santa Claus and as a father are hilarious. He also exudes lots of warmth, however, as he tries to deal with crazy family situations and all the quirks associated with his job at the North Pole.

THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two has a pro-family worldview with positive references to Christmas. However, Scott’s daughter is taking lessons in witchcraft from the local witch at the North Pole. This becomes a major subplot in the third episode of THE SANTA CLAUSES: Season Two. Hopefully, though, the series eventually will denounce the use of witchcraft in the final three episodes of Season Two. MOVIEGUIDE® will let you know what happens.
