Eubie in the happiest elf at the North Pole. More than anything else, he longs to be a part of Santa’s sleigh team. Instead, he’s stuck checking the naughty-or-nice lists. But this Christmas Eve, he notices something strange: in the entire town of Bluesville, not a single person has been nice. So with a pinch of elfish magic, help from his friends, and his unending holiday spirit, Eubie sets off to turn all of those children from naughty to nice in just one day! Based on the beloved holiday song, “The Happy Elf” by Grammy Award winner Harry Connick, Jr. The Happy Elf is a new holiday classic for the entire family.
