In the movie The Santa Clause, one becomes Santa by putting on the red coat after the death of the previous Santa. Even ignoring how morbid this premise is on its own, it’s possible that there’s another even darker level to the story. When Scott Calvin shows up at the North Pole as the new Santa, not only do the elves not appear surprised, they seem happy to see him and not at all upset about the Santa he replaced. And furthermore, at the very beginning of the movie, we see an elf standing with a crowd of children outside a toy store near Scott’s house. Why would she already be there if she didn’t have some sort of prior knowledge of what was going to occur? This leaves me no choice but to conclude that the elves not only hated the previous Santa but actually orchestrated his demise.
tl;dr: In The Santa Clause, the elves totally murdered the previous Santa.
Update: In The Santa Clause 2, the Easter Bunny says kids are 86% happier since Scott became Santa. 86%. Clearly, the last Santa was so terrible, the elves had to off him.
Also, according to The Santa Clause 2, Santa has to be married in order to remain Santa, which means that the previous Santa must have been married - but there’s no Mrs. Clause around when Scott gets to the North Pole. What happened to her?
And finally, I think this raises some pretty serious questions about Bernard’s sudden disappearance in between The Santa Clause 2 and 3. Just how badly did Curtis want to be Head Elf?
Just how many people have the elves murdered? Clearly those rosy cheeks and innocent, childlike faces are hiding some pretty dark secrets.
