Santa's Workshop is a beloved classic animated short film released in 1932. The film is only a little over seven minutes in length, but it is filled with the magic, cheer, and charm of Christmas. It features Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus, elves, and other toys, and it was created by some of the most legendary animators of all time, including Walt Disney.

The film begins in Santa's Workshop at the North Pole, where we see elves hard at work, busy preparing toys and gifts for children all around the world. The elves are all cheerful and filled with the joy of the holiday season. They are very happy to be working to create toys that they know will bring happiness to so many children.

Meanwhile, Santa is getting ready to make his deliveries. He checks his list twice and makes sure that all the toys are ready to go. Santa's reindeer, including Rudolph, are eagerly waiting for him to give the command to begin the journey. They are all attached to Santa's sleigh, ready to take off into the sky.

As they take off, we see them gliding over snowy mountains and through the sky. The reindeer are all in perfect synchronization, as they pull the sleigh full of toys behind them. We are given a glimpse of the effort it takes to deliver presents to children all over the world in just one night. However, the joy they're able to bring makes the effort seem well worth it.

The film then cuts to various destinations around the world as Santa and his reindeer make their deliveries. We see Santa descending into chimneys, delivering presents to sleeping children, and then quietly slipping away again. In one instance, Santa even takes a moment to play on a child's toy drum set, delighting the child when he discovers the gift in the morning.

As the sun begins to rise, we see Santa and his reindeer heading back to the North Pole, with the sleigh empty and the children around the world happy. Upon their return to the North Pole, the elves are overjoyed to welcome back their boss, as they chirp and cheep with excitement. Santa Claus then enters his home in the North Pole, and we see him removing his hat and coat. He waves farewell to the camera, and the film ends with the message, "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night."
