    BRAVO! Author! Author!I'm not sure where Batman got the impression that Santa was Clark (Superman) Kent, especially with Alfred being able to attest to the sleigh and reindeer, but otherwise a GREAT video!If DC hasn't given their okay to this one, they should!

      Don't sweat the little details like why Superman would need a sleigh and reindeer…or why Bruce would show up for the party dressed as Batman. ;-) I guessed that Santa was Superman early on.

    I sincerely do not think I was "sweating the details". For in regards to the party, from the conversation early on between Alfred and Batman, it was apparently going to be a very small gathering and everyone there knew everyone else, including their secret identities. Or maybe the animator just didn't have a Bruce Wayne doll. ;-)I personally just didn't see the point in hinting that Santa Claus might have been Superman in disguise. The story/video works just as well with Batman encountering the "real" Santa Claus, like he did in Silent Night, Deadly Night from Batman 239 as reprinted in the first Christmas With the Super-Heroes tabloid (Limited Collector's Edition C-34).
