Plot Synopsis

Based on the theatrical film ELF and the Broadway show "Elf: The Musical," ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS is a one-hour stop-motion animated holiday musical special that retells Buddy's delightfully absurd yet heartwarming tale. Santa narrates the story of Buddy's travels to New York City to meet Walter Hobbs, the father he never knew he had. Along the way his unrelenting cheer transforms the lives of everyone he meets and opens his father's eyes to the magic of Christmas. There are nine songs in the special, including "Happy All the Time," "A Christmas Song" and "Nobody Cares About Santa Claus."
