Maybe in order to understand mankind we have to look at that word itself. MANKIND. Basically, it's made up of two separate words mank and ind. What do these words mean? It's a mystery and that's why so is mankind.

Synopsis: Scott finds out that there is one more thing he must do or he can no longer be Santa.

Reaction: A bit more evenly toned, though that tone is definitely geared toward the young audience. It's still quite enjoyable.

Personal Rating: 7/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Toy Santa's line, "You are a sad, strange little man," is also used by Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story.
  • Originally subtitled "The Escape Clause".
  • Scott Calvin starts talking about cars and engines while talking to Carol Newman, and while walking through the toyshop, Santa picks up and tries on a tool belt. These reference to Tim Taylor, Tim Allen's character on [Home Improvement].
  • Lucy has a [Kim Possible] poster in her room when the Tooth Fairy comes inside from the window.
  • Late in the movie, when Scott is mostly "de-Santafied", he captures the Tooth Fairy. The Tooth Fairy, doubting that Scott is Santa Claus, tells him "I know Santa Claus. I'm friends with Santa Claus. You're no Santa Claus." This is a parody of [?] Lloyd Bentsen's famous retort to [?] Dan Quayle during the 1988 US Vice Presidential debate, comparing him with 'Jack Kennedy' referring to John F. Kennedy.
  • In the opening credits, several Jack-in-the-Boxes pop open. The last one to open is the same type of Jack-in-the-Box that is seen numerous times in Elf.
