Storyline

At the North Pole, Santa Claus (Father Christmas) and his chief dog Santa Paws worry as the whole toy processing system is threatened by the weakening of its magical power source, the icicle drawing on Christmas spirit. When harshly rebuked Puppy Paws, wishing there was no Christmas, and he a regular dog, runs away to Fernfield and joins the five Buddies siblings, power falls beneath minimum. Chief Elf Eli finds his trace, and travels in an attempt to save his and the world's Christmas spirit, but the six puppies face misunderstandings, and the grim dog catcher Stan Cruge. Written by KGF Vissers

Kids need Air Buddies films...
25 November 2009 | by crash523See all my reviews

I am a big fan of the Air Buddies series. It's hard to find clean fun in movies nowadays, even from Disney. I think my children really enjoy these films. The story lines are sweet and heartwarming but not too complicated for younger ones to misunderstand. I find each of the buddies so unique and creative in their own ways.

As soon as this movie started I noticed that, like all the buddies movies, the CG is terrible, but still believable for little eyes. The scenes of the toy factory really bring in the Christmas spirit for me. I was also surprise to see Christopher Lloyd back in films.. He has a wonderful role in this one. Also the soundtrack and all the songs are just wonderful.

If you don't like the buddies... at least rent this one for your kids.. it's a really touching Christmas tale. It teaches the kids about responsibility for your actions, friendship, giving, and the importance of Christmas cheer.
