Episode Summary

EDIT
The Miracle on 34th Street
AIRED:
One Kris Kringle, a department-store Santa Claus, causes quite a commotion by suggesting customers go to a rival store for their purchases. But this is nothing to the stir he causes by announcing that he is not merely a make-believe St. Nick, but the real McCoy.

      • Fred Gailey, Thomas Mara and Judge Harper.

        Thomas Mara: Your Honor, the defense has yet to produce one bit of authorative proof, that this man is really Santa Claus. And in view of the fact that it is Christmas Eve and we are all anxious to get to our homes, I ask that these commitment papers be signed without further delay.

        Judge: Ah, Mr. Gailey have you anything further to offer.

        Fred Gailey: I should like to submit the following evidence. Your Honor, it concerns an official agency of the United States Government. The Post Office Department on of the world's largest business concerns did a gross business last year of one billion, one hundred twelve million, eight hundred seventy-seven thousand and one hundred seventy-four dollars.

        Thomas Mara: Your Honor, I'm sure we are all deeply gratified to know that the Post Office Department is doing nicely but it hardly has any bearing on this case.

        Fred Gailey: Furthermore the US Postal laws make it a criminal offense to willfully misdirect mail or intentionally deliver it to the wrong party.

        Thomas Mara: Your Honor, I'm sure that the State of New York is willing to admit that the Post Office Department is authorative, properous and efficient.

        Fred Gailey: For the Record?

        Thomas Mara: For the Record, anything to get on with this case.

        Fred Gailey: Then your Honor, I offer these letters in evidence. They are simply addressed to Santa Claus, yet they were each delivered to Mr. Kringle by bonafide AM employees of the Post Office Department. I offer these as authorative proof that....

        Thomas Mara: Your Honor, three letters aren't hardly authorative proof.

        Fred Gailey: I have further exhibits your Honor, but I hesitate to produce them.

        Thomas Mara: Oh I'm sure we'd be all glad to see them.

        Judge Harper: Oh yes indeed, put them on my desk.

        Fred Gailey: On your desk?

        Judge Harper: Yes, yes

        Fred Gailey: Very well your Honor.

        Postal workers arrive carrying bags and bags of letters to Santa.

        Fred Gailey: Your Honor, everyone of these letters is addressed to Santa Claus and the Post Office has delivered them to my client. Therefore the United States Government recognizes this man Kris Kringle as Santa Claus.

        Judge Harper: If the United States of America believes that this man is Santa Claus, then this court will not dispute it. Case dismissed!
