Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny (1972)

R & S Film Enterprises Inc.
Directed by R. Winer
My rating: BOMB

Santa's sleigh gets stuck in the sand near a Florida amusement park. While waiting for help, he tells the story of Thumbelina to kids who rush to listen. Thumbelina is actually another film, shown in its entirety complete with title and credits, made at the same park (Pirates World in Dania Beach). It's the familiar story, only emphasizing the psychedelic aspects for the "flower power" generation, acted by amateurs on a high-school level set. When that is over, a giant bunny shows up in a fire truck to rescue Santa on the beach. Inept on all levels, not even worth a "so good it's bad" recommendation. A leading contender for the worst Christmas movie of all time.
