Yoyo, Hoops and Piddles are big Santa Claus fans. They wait on the roof to see him. They sneak on his sleigh and get thrown back in time. They disrupt young stable boy Kris Kringle who is working to compete for Master Toymaker. They try to fix what they wreck. Eventually, Kris Kringle is able to fix his toy and enter into the competition. Then they discover children are strictly forbidden from the toys.
These characters will either annoy you or charm you. I bet on annoyance for most adults although little kids may like the wacky voices and bright colors. I'm willing to give them a chance. I really like the story. It's very Christmas and has a sweet message. Most importantly, it has the essence of Santa Claus and fits a Christmas TV special.
