|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Santa Claus Conquers the Martians|
|Martian children, raised to be devoid of emotion, watch TV shows about Santa Clause, and become depressed and withdrawn. Martian leader Kimar, disturbed by the changes in his own two children, leads a mission to Earth to kidnap Santa so as to bring happiness to Martian children.
On Earth, the Martians cannot find Santa, and must enlist the help of two Earth children, whom they also kidnap. Santa and the children are taken back to Mars, where Santa is made to work in a toy factory, in an effort to create a Martian Christmas. Santa takes the kidnapping in stride, but the Earth children become depressed. At the same time, a small faction of Martians rebels against the idea of a Martian Christmas, and tries to kidnap Santa to take him back to Earth.
