This movie stars Katherine Helmond and Sid Caesar as widowed candy store owner Gertrude Mutterance and landlord Mr. Snyder. Melissa and a young actor named Kimble Joyner play Mrs. Mutterance's two children, Amy and Wallace, who were separately orphaned and adopted by her.
The story takes place in a small town, just before Christmas, circa 1954. Mrs. Mutterance is told by Mr. Snyder that she must vacate her store and home to make way for a coin-operated ``automatic laundriette''. The next morning he goes missing. Wallace and Amy celebrate, but Mrs. Mutterance tries to convince them that Mr. Snyder must be found or the spirit of Christmas will be lost forever.

I got these credits from the 1995 airing of the movie. Unfortunately, a few screens of the credits were squeezed horizontally to about 30% of the screen, so they were nearly impossible to read. When it was replayed in 1996, the credits were left full-screen, so I should be able to read everything I couldn't before. I just haven't gotten around to doing this. Full credits coming soon.
