Santa Claus in Japan

One of the great unknown mysteries of Ozian fandom has been the early '90s Japanese anime series based on L. Frank Baum's The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus. Nobody — at least on this side of the Atlantic — has been able to track it down or learn much about it. So it helps to have a fan in Japan, I guess. Michael-sensei, a Canadian teaching English over there, has also tracked down some interesting Oz stuff over there, and today on his blog posted about Shonen Santa no Daiboken with a lot more info than I've ever seen on it before. No, he hasn't found it yet, but he's on the hunt. I just hope he'll manage to get a copy to me somehow, too...
