Synopsis

In this puppet animated film, all of the children on Earth would like a "beeping sputnik" for Christmas, but Santa's team up in space are worried because none of them know what a sputnik is. Santa must travel to Earth to find out, and eventually some children show him Sputnik through a telescope and give him a model of a launch vehicle. But his friends aren't so excited about the news that the humans will soon be able to research space...

 

This puppet animated film is based on a radio drama by Walter Karl Schweickert.
