Plot Synopsis

Created and executive produced by showrunners Matthew Bass and Theodore Bressman, THE POLE is a quarter-hour animated series that centers on a twisted power struggle for Santa's Red Suit -- and the future of Christmas -- after a scandal involving "Saint" Nick rocks the holly jolly foundations of the North Pole, causing all hell to break loose. As Nick, the 20th to wear the Suit, struggles with the age-old question of naughty vs. nice, his wife Mrs. Claus (aka Gretchen) works to keep the political machine that is toy production afloat. It isn't easy as they juggle the factory elves, including Nick's head elf Matilda and the political activist Helenor, as well as parenting two sons -- Nick's mini-me Harry and the crown prince, Jack, who's not only next in line for the Suit, but also looking to rebrand it. Reporting on all the drama in THE POLE? Cocoa, host of the North Pole News Network Program, "Morning Cocoa."

On the surface Nick is jolly, super into pancakes and recreational drugs, but he struggles with the mounting discord in his own backyard. And so, THE POLE follows him on a journey of introspection as he reconsiders traditional definitions of naughty and nice. Meanwhile, Gretchen runs the political machine that has become the business of toy production. She is by far the smartest person on the North Pole and is the only thing keeping it together. Doing God's work as Nick's ride-or-die workaholic head elf, Matilda was top of her class at the Elf on a Shelf program.
