Because he's just Santa Claus right from the start! He makes an incredible transformation in the beginning of the movie, and then throughout the movie his son keeps him believing that he's truly The Santa Claus!! Great Movie 🎥

Is because he is the best one to do it because he is funny, and he is serious when it comes down to do Santa Claus.

Tim’s Santa feels like a real person as opposed to a mythical one.

I've seen all Tim's The Santa Clause movies AND all the episodes of his new Santa Clauses. Looking forward to seeing his latest. He's truly a funny guy.

I am familiar with Tim Allen as I grew up watching Home Improvement & Last Man Standing. Maybe if I had watched Edmund's performance I would pick him but I have a feeling that it still would not change my vote and love for the one and only Tim Allen 👍🎄

This Christmas movie is the best ever made. I enjoyed watching year after year while growing up. Also, still enjoy it watching today as if it was my first time. It’s an excellent excellent movie. It’s what Christmas is all about. 🥰

I guess I'm just a traditionalist. And Edmund Gwenn represents Christmas to me. A close second would be Kurt Russell!!!

He was the epitome of a real Santa Claus that made you question if he really could be real, even as an adult.

Because he's more believable. He's so sure of himself that he'll convince the audience that he is indeed, St. Nicholas. And Miracle on 34th is my all time favorite Christmas Movie...

My mom didn't like the character of Archie Bunker & the way he spoke to his wife. Plus she hated hearing Edith's whiney voice when she'd say "Charrrllliie" & that she was cast as an oblivious air-head. She wasn't much of a Jefferson's fan either since we lived in a rural area & they were city aprtmt

George was never verbally abusive and disrespectful to Weezy. While Archie was those things as well as ignorant. As a child watching the show it always made me sad. Cause I would think about all the women being treated like that in real life.

I loved both shows , all the sitcoms from Norm Lear in the 70’s were the best , that’s when TV was so funny we had real clean comedy ,I would laugh hysterically every night . I don’t even watch tv except for the news because it’s all boring , nothing is funny . Bring all these shows back please

It showed me what I lived in poverty. However, it showed me what I could become as a mixed raced child, raised by my white grandmother...god bless her soul.

I love The Jeffersons! George was funny and he didn't take any crap from anyone. At that time he put a lot of prejudice white people in there place. The woman who played his mother was funny. His house keeper Florence was just as hilarious as George. The theme song Moving On Up was the best ever!

None of the other shows would have existed had their characters not been developed in this show. Plus Carol O'Connor, a lifelong liberal, did a masterful job portraying his bigoted big mouth character. And Edith! Jean Stapleton was a genius & she perfectly offset Archie. I still ❤️ this show!

I was a kid when it was on, but my parents - who were socially progressive for the times - watched it, and thus so did I. It was an education for me on the ways of society that I had yet to experience/observe for myself, I also enjoyed getting the same from his other shows as well!
