Tom Whalen The Year Without a Santa Claus Poster Release From Dark Hall Mansion

Tom Whalen and Dark Hall Mansion bring home one of the ultimate '70s Holiday classics, letting everyone know it's time to put up the decorations, gather round the TV, and prepare for one of THE single most amazing holiday songs-EVER! YES!! The Miser Brothers are here and we are so very excited to bring you DHM's officially licensed "The Year Without a Santa Claus" limited edition prints by artist Tom Whalen.

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Warner Bros Entertainment, will release what is hands down one of Tom Whalen's holiday classics. Front and center, two of everyone's most fondly remembered '70's icons-the Miser Brothers! Hard to put into words what we feel on hearing those opening musical notes and seeing Snow Miser's eternally cool delivery belting out "I'm Mr. White Christmas, I'm Mister Snow…" and then batted back by his equally outrageous and showboating brother singing "I'm Mr. Green Christmas, I'm Mister Sun, I'm Mr. Heat Blister, I'm Mr. 101," all the while tossing off amazingly delivered flourishes like, "Sing It!!" and the most extraordinary "Thank you" you're likely to ever hear!

A timeless Rankin-Bass masterpiece from 1974, "The Year Without a Santa Claus" is also one of the most touching holiday classics, for good reason, and Tom surprised even himself with his striking composition and the sheer amount of happenings within a single 18" x 24" canvas: Santa weighing the faith of children around the world as to their belief in him, elves frantically racing to rescue one of Santa's reindeer fallen ill to warm weather, a Miser Brothers singing stand-off that must be seen AND heard, and all beautifully resolved as Santa's faith is rewarded seeing the children of the world, united, to instead bring HIM a gift this Christmas. So enough talk, turn up the Miser's song, enjoy the beauty of Tom's artwork (come on, those Miser minions!) and let his adorable Santa bring the holiday cheer into your home!
