Santa's Surprise (1947)

Santa’s Surprise is a 1947 Christmas Noveltoon, produced by Famous Studios and originally released by Paramount Pictures on December 5, 1947. The short was notable to feature the first appearance of the character Little Audrey, a mischievous New Yorker.

Since Little Audrey successfully stole the show, Paramount decided to drop the rights to Marge’s Little Lulu, and created new cartoons involving the very cute all-American tomboy.

As Santa delivers presents to Audrey (an all-American girl who lived in Manhattan, New York City) and some other children, they slip into his sleigh to repay him by cleaning up his house, often with a clumsy Dutch boy’s antics.
