Santa Clause - Eine schöne Bescherung

Familienvater Scott Calvin gerät am Heiligabend in eine unerwartete Zwangslage: der Weihnachtsmann ist soeben von Scotts Dach gefallen und liegt bewußtlos im Schnee: Ausgerechnet er soll ihn nun vertreten. Doch mit dem Anziehen des Kostüms verwandelt sich Scott allmählich selbst zum echten Weihnachtsmann. Er wird zusehends dicker, und sein Bartwuchs ist nicht zu stoppen. Bald begreift er, welche Konsequenzen auf ihn zukommen... Sein Sohn findet das super, doch die Erwachsenen reagieren verständnislos.

Super Noël

Scott Calvin, un père entretenant des rapports difficiles avec son fils Charlie qu'il ne voit plus qu'épisodiquement, est témoin de l'accident dont est victime le Père Noël. Scott, d'abord étonné mais surtout réticent, accepte d'assurer ce qu'il croit être un intérim incluant la distribution de cadeaux. Un elfe du Père Noël, Bernard, apprend alors à Scott que ce dernier est officiellement devenu le Père Noël.

Santa Clause

Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) è un padre divorziato con un figlio, Charlie (Eric Lloyd). La notte di Natale, vengono svegliati da un rumore sul tetto. Uscito per scoprire cosa fosse successo, Scott vede un uomo sul tetto, e urlando gli intima di allontanarsi dalla sua abitazione. Così facendo però fa scivolare l'uomo che cade a terra. L'uomo defunto sembra essere Babbo Natale, che sparisce liquefacendosi e lasciando a terra solamente il vestito e il biglietto da visita. Il biglietto non è altro che un contratto che dichiara che se fosse successo qualcosa a Babbo Natale chi ha provocato il danno avrebbe dovuto mettersi il vestito e continuare da dove Santa Claus aveva lasciato. Sopra il tetto scoprono addirittura delle renne. Scott per accontentare il figlio, mette il vestito di Babbo Natale e inizia a trasportare doni di tetto in tetto.
