Cornelia offers Santa some chocolate chip cookies from Bloomingdale’s.  Santa helps himself to some cookies before saying goodbye for now.   The next day, it’s Christmas and Patch’s shoddily produced toys start falling apart much to the disappointment of kids everywhere (or, at least, somewhere in Texas).  Join us as we take a deep dive into what Santa calls his favorite cookies, reveal what Cornelia thinks of the nickname “Corny”, search for an obscure TBS promo, learn that friendship is magic, and much more! Join us as we discuss Minute 57 of Santa Claus: The Movie (1985).
