The Night Before Christmas, also known as Santa's Toys, is a 1933 Christmas-themed Silly Symphony short produced by Walt Disney Producttions and originally released by United Artists on December 9, 1933, following up the previous year's Santa's Workshop.
In a loose adaptation of Clement C. Moore's famous poem, St. Nick is seen delivering the toys that he made in Santa's Workshop to a house full of sleeping children. The toys come alive, and they dance around and have fun. The kids awake to find a beautiful Christmas tree with lots of toys.
The short was featured on the A Walt Disney Christmas VHS, CED, and Laserdisc releases in 1982. It made its DVD debut as a bonus feature on the 2002 Special Edition DVD release of The Santa Clause. It was later included on the Walt Disney Treasures: More Silly Symphonies DVD set in 2006. It was included as a bonus feature again on the 2012 Blu-ray release of The Santa Clause.
