Animated children's Christmas movie seen in 90's: wish upon a shooting star, 'twas the night before Christmas poem, take a trip down candy cane lane overnight, return home in santa's sleigh

Movie seen as a kid in 1990's. A brother and sister are getting ready to go to bed on Christmas Eve. Kids see a shooting star outside of the window and recite the poem I wish I may I wish I might wish upon a star tonight. The kids are in their beds and the poem "twas the night before Christmas" is recited and a mouse is stirring in the house. Kids fall asleep but are awakened and end up on a trip down memory lane - candy cane lane? They return home in santas sleigh.

Maybe "The Night Before Christmas: A Mouse Tale"?
I eventually found the movie name and it's called waiting for Santa by Barney and the backyard gang. Never in my life would I have remember the giant purple dinosaur in this movie, and I can't believe that Barney is what I was all thrilled about as a kid. Lmao!
