Santa Claus Conquers The Martians (1964)

Martian kids have been watching too much Earth Christmas television and want someone to bring them presents, so the Red Planet sends Kimar and Voldar (who hates Christmas!) to the North Pole to kidnap St. Nick and Earth kids Billy and Betty. The Plan 9 from Outer Space of Christmas movies, Santa Clause Conquers the Martians offers such classic dialogue as, "Thank you, Santa, for bringing happiness to the children of Mars."
