«Sagan om Karl-Bertil Jonssons Julafton» («The Tale About Karl-Bertil Jonsson's Christmas Eve») is Per Åhlin's animated movie adaptation of Tage Danielsson's short story of the same name, telling a hearth-warming tale of a modern Robin Hood who takes from the rich to give to the poor people of Stockholm on Christmas Eve. Karl-Bertil Jonsson's Julafton has gained huge popularity in Sweden, and is broadcast every Christmas Eve on Swedish and Norwegian national television.
The film was dubbed to English in 1987, with Bernard Cribbins as the voice-over, and got the title «Christopher's Christmas Mission».
