Big Bird is saddened that Mr. Snuffleupagus is going to Cincinnati to visit his grandmother for Christmas, but he assures him he'll be back the day after. Elmo does manage this year, but is surprised when Santa gets stuck in the chimney. Elmo pulls him out, and he is frustrated at Lightning, a fast-footed young reindeer who hopes to pull Santa's sleigh one day, hiding in his bag of toys, which made it so big it couldn't fit through the chimney. After scolding him, Santa explains to Elmo that when he pulled him out of the chimney, he saved Christmas and offers him a magic snow globe which gives him three wishes (he picked it over a pink bear).

Cute, but Fierstein is grating
5 December 1998 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Elmo wishes that every day is Christmas, wreaking havoc on the world. But why did they put Harvey Fierstein in a singing role? This guy has the worst voice I've ever heard!
