Really fun
24 December 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I have just seen The Happy Elf on Cartoon Network and it was a charming, fun little movie.

The Character animation was great as was the character design. I really enjoyed Lewis Black as the the new boss of the main character.

I have never been fond of musical numbers in animation and after seeing this movie I'm still not But Harry Connick Jr's touch is felt here with a few jazzy numbers that are quite cool.

The Happy Elf did not set my world on fire not that it should since I'm an adult but it was a enjoyable watch.

It's a fun movie.
