Hawthorneis the outgoing Mr. Claus, facing mandatory retirement from the North Poleat age 200. Whoopi is the TV executive who thinks Christmas is nothing but humbug in the first place.Mr. Claus must persuade her to take his place on the throne, lest the ice capsmelt and the world's children weep. Co-executive-produced by Goldberg and featuring original tunes from Garth Books, this TNT television movie is holiday fun for the whole family!
