A New Christmas Classic!
19 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Happy Elf" debuts as yet another holiday special for the family - but this isn't a run of the mill show. The Christmas theme gets made over with high tech computer animation and a star packed cast featuring Harry Connick Jr., Carol Kane, Mickey Rooney, and more. The delightful animations show a myriad of nuanced facial expressions that draw the viewer into the story. The festive Christmas songs are also a great touch that really put the icing on the cake! This DVD is great holiday fun for the whole family.

The story centers around the elf Eubie, who undertakes the massive task of bringing the Christmas spirit to the aptly-named Bluesville. This sets the stage for Eubie's ebuillent optimism versus the staid conventions of the townspeople. The typical "fish out of water" motif gets made over as both the North Pole and Bluesville become frustrated with Eubie's unbridled enthusiasm and determination to do what he knows is right. The plot is a wonderful Christmas fable that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

This DVD does a great job of carrying on the traditions set forth by such 60's classics as "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Frosty the Snowman," adding a modern touch to the medium without losing any of the features that keep this cartoons near and dear to our hearts. The songs, comedy, and adventure all add up to one irresistibly fresh take on Christmas! The DVD also includes entertaining extras such as a fullscreen or widescreen options, games, storyboards, cards, a coloring book, interviews, and more! Buy this DVD and bring Christmas joy to your family for years to come!
