Because You’ve All Been Good Boys and Girls This Year, Here’s Buster Keaton as Santa Claus

While stumbling around on youtube the other day, I unearthed a real gem. On a Christmas-themed episode of the Donna Reed Show, Donna buys gifts for children stuck in a hospital ward. But she needs a Santa to deliver the gifts. She asks the hospital’s janitor to jump into the jolly old elf’s clothes. Playing the role of the janitor, and Santa by proxy, was Buster Keaton. See the clip after the jump.
