[All the children gather with the Conductor and elves in the North Pole city square. The elves bring the reindeer out]

[singing] It's the spirit of the season! You can feel it in the air! You can hear it if you listen! Everywhere, so much care, like a prayer, whatever it is, you need to share it! [the reindeer are lined up] It's the spirit of the season! [Horns are played. The elves bring the harnesses out] It's the spirit of the season! You can feel it in the air! [Everyone cheers. The elves place the harnesses on the reindeer]

Hero Girl:
Aren't those bells the most beautiful sound?

[The Hero Boy is unable to hear the bells. The entire square grows silent]

[singing] Ohhh, you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I'm tellin' you why! Santa Claus is comin'... TO TOWN! [Santa finally emerges from the doors. A massive cheer erupts from the children and elves as Frank Sinatra's 1948 recording of "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" begins blaring over the city's PA system]

Recorded music:
[singing] You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout. I'm tellin' you why! Santa Claus is comin'... to town. He's makin' a list--

Hero Girl:
[elated] He's here! He's here!

Hero Boy:
[confused] Where!?

[ecstatic] I see him! He's over there!

Hero Boy:
I can't see him!

Recorded music:
Santa Claus is comin' to town. [The Conductor takes off his hat in respect. The Hero Boy is unable to see Santa, due to the elves stacking themselves on top of each other, blocking his view] He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake! Oh, you better watch out--

Hero Boy:
I can't see him! I CAN'T SEE HIM!!!

Recorded music:
Santa Claus is comin' to town. [Suddenly, a loud clatter erupts from the reindeer, who prance about excitedly. The camera zooms in on the Hero Boy's eyes. The sequence begins to slow down] You better watch ouuuut, beetteer noot cryyyy, [a bell breaks loose from the harness and is thrown into the air] beetteer noot pooouut, [the bell falls back down, bounces on the ground and rolls right to the Hero Boy] III'm teeellin' yooou whhyyyy! Saaanta Clauus iis cooomiiin'... too toooooown.
