What’s up, dudes? It’s Snow White in the ‘80s, and I’ve got Anthony Caruso from ‘Tis the Podcast with me to talk about it! That’s right. We’re talking “The Charmings” and its 1987 Christmas episode, ‘Yes, Lillian, There Is a Santa Claus!’

It’s Christmas time at the Charmings’ household, and Lillian is Scroogier than ever. She tries to ruin their Christmas spirit with a snowstorm! The Charmings, however, turn disaster into fun, having snowball fights and building snowmen. Even the Magic Mirror is in the holiday mood.

Thoroughly infuriated, Lillian  tells the children that there is no Santa Claus, and is convincing enough that they believe her. Snow White begs her to do the right thing, play Santa, and get gifts for the kids anyway. Lillian has quite a shock when the real Santa arrives at the Charming house and finds no “true believers” left there. Since Santa only delivers gifts to true believers, Lillian has a crisis of conscience. She uses her powers to correct the damage she has done, and get presents for everyone.

Sassy mirror? Check. One of the seven dwarves as a mall elf? Got it. Hip Santa with a leather jacket, jeans, and no beard? Only if he’s played by the waiter from “Scrooged!” So grab your sword, put on your cap, and build your He-Man village to this episode all about “The Charmings!”
