After screen and stage, the seasonal saga of Buddy the Elf gets the holiday musical animated TV special treatment in this charmer. After learning that he's a human abandoned at the North Pole as an infant, Buddy (voiced by Jim Parsons) ventures to New York City in a quest to find his real dad (Mark Hamill), and maybe provide a needed lesson in Christmas cheer. With the voices of Kate Micucci, Ed Asner, Rachael MacFarlane, and Max Charles. 60 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
