13 Funniest 'The Santa Clause' Quotes From The Movie

Tim Allen plays Santa in 'The Santa Clause'.

Who doesn't remember Tim Allen with his epic role as the man who offed the original Santa and had to begrudgingly fill in his, well, mighty big shoes!

With three blockbuster 'The Santa Clause' flicks to go back and watch to our heart's content at any time, it isn't much of a surprise that a fourth installment to 'The Santa Clause' series was never announced.

That said, we will always love the original 'Santa Clause' movie for its enthralling antics, touching storyline and for being the biggest bag of Christmas laughs that it came to be known for, all with the help of a stellar cast and some darn good writing. With a special mention going out to the Effective Liberating Flight Squad (which is what the elves are called in the movie), we think these Christmas movie quotes will surely entertain families all across the world, just like the movie did.
