"Yes, Virginia" is a 30-minute animated Christmas special created by JWT for Macy's. Starring Neil Patrick Harris, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Alfred Molina, the show premiered on CBS in 2009 and has since become a highly-rated part of the network's annual holiday lineup.
Created in the spirit of the great holiday specials of the 50s and 60s, "Yes, Virginia" garned strong reviews from critics at USA Today,The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, among others. The song "Yes, Virginia (There's a Santa Claus)" written by Macy's own Bill Schermerhorn and Wesley Whatley for the DVD won an Emmy in 2011 for Best Original Song.
What started as one-time special has now become its own entertainment brand. The show spawned a DVD release, a children's book, a parade balloon, an iPhone and iPad app, and is annually one of the top holiday downloads on iTunes.
