Santa Claus Has Been Kidnapped!
Christmas is coming, so it's time to worry about the arrival of Kris Kringle, but much to our dismay, he's been kidnapped! I wish I could find a manga edition of this story, but in the interim, here's a copy of the story in Japanese and in English! Enjoy!
Though I've been unable to find an affordable copy of this anime, if you'd like to check out Santa's Adventures as a Boy, here's an AKSC episode guide, the lyrics to the song, and you should check out this:
Thanks to always wonderful Blog of Oz for reminding me about this story. I'd actually written this post in July and forgot to publish it!
Just in case you'd thought I'd forgotten, here is today's KitKat Kontribution. It's 紅いも、沖縄・九州から which translates to Purple Sweet Potato from the Okinawa & Kyushu regions. It looks delish, though I'm not a fan of sugary tubers. I'm sure Baum would certainly approve though.
ps. For those of you who are sick of Santa already and want some Oz with your Baum, here's a link to a 1910 version of TWWoO with Japanese Subtitles!
