"Merry Christmas" A jolly Santa is seated at center, among five adoring children in their night clothes. A baby on Stanta's knee holds his new toy, a "jester's" rattle; a young boy kneels barefoot on the floor (embraced by Santa's large hand), the boy tries out his new gift from Santa, a toy horn; a young girl tries to kiss Santa, and two children at his back look on with gratitude and happiness. Numerous toys fill in the space at the bottom of the cartoon. An American flag is at the top of the cartoon. From Harper's Weekly, Jan. 4, 1979.
