“This DVD uses humor very appropriate for its audience and exhibits cinematographic, artistic, and musical excellence…the moral values behind the title are exceptional.

“In the end, Saint Nicholas is up there with The Star Of Christmas for classic, heartwarming and inspiring Veggie Christmas specials... it will certainly inspire to give - and give from the heart. And the fact that it frequently reminds viewers of Jesus' birth being the reason for the season, it really can't get much better than that.” –

“Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki continue to produce top-notch talent with the multiple characters they voice... the creators manage to put a creative angle on the ‘give, but not to receive,’ moral…fantastic mix of humor for all ages…” – ONCOURSE Online
