Product Description

Based on Grammy®-winner Harry Connick, Jr.’s original song, THE HAPPY ELF will be sure to ring in the season with loads of holiday laughter. This delightful animated adventure is the story of Eubie, one of Santa’s helpers whose overly optimistic outlook is put to the test when he decides to bring Christmas joy to a sad little town called Bluesville. Will Eubie’s unbridled enthusiasm be too much for the town’s austere authority? Featuring the voice and brand-new holiday songs of Harry Connick, Jr. and the voice talents of Carol Kane, Lewis Black, Rob Paulsen, and Mickey Rooney. With tons of comedy and adventure along the way, THE HAPPY ELF is destined to be a Christmas classic the whole family will enjoy.

Amazon.com

Harry Connick Jr., whose original song "The Happy Elf" inspired this cheerful, animated Christmas special, provides the voice of a narrator straightening out a couple of misguided kids who think they've got Santa fooled about their naughty-or-nice status. Connick's character tells them about Eubie, the North Pole elf whose constant exuberance wears others down but which gives Santa an idea: send Eubie to Bluesville, where joy is squelched by a repressive town authority. There, Eubie meets up with a secret movement to bring happiness to Bluesville, and ultimately does Santa proud. The Happy Elf's computer animation evokes the look of those 1960s stop-motion classics Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman, though movement is much more fluid and dimension greater. Still, this is an effort to create a new classic, and with vocal performances that include Mickey Rooney (as Santa) and Lewis Black, and some charming songs, The Happy Elf could be a perennial Christmas entertainment. --Tom Keogh

Customer Reviews

The animation is great; the story line is creative, and the music is bouncy and fun.
H. M. Bollinger
I also highly recommend his CD of the same title, and even more, his first Christmas CD, "When My Heart Finds Christmas."
Monty Moonlight
It's something you can watch over and over every year during and even after Christmas time.

I purchased this DVD last week even though I had never heard of it before. I hadn't watched it yet, and the other night I was curious to see what people said about it. After reading the "review" from the lady that said it was "Disgusting", I was completely bummed and hesitant to watch the movie. Well, I just got done watching it, and now I am left wondering....LADY, DID WE WATCH THE SAME MOVIE??

First of all, in the beginning when the little girl says "shut up", it was said in the context of "nooo way", which is how kid's say it these days. And it was the ONLY time it was said. There is NO bad language, and NO HISSING CHILDREN.

It was a cute Christmas movie, with a happy conquers sad theme. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to share it with my nieces and nephews.

As for it being scary, the only way your child will "soil their pants" is if your child is scared of candy and puppy dogs!!!

Harry Connick Jr! Isn't that enough! Okay, so I'm a big fan of the man, but this show's pretty good on its own, although the music and narration wouldn't be the same without him.

Forty-five minutes is a little shorter than I cared for, but that's what they gave us (an extra few minutes wouldn't have hurt much). We get to follow a Happy Little Elf called Eubie who tries to make some naughty kids turn nice. Not too sappy, and still a possible Christmas classic.

The DVD set's not too shabby. Aside from the film there are quite a few extras including a box that lights up and plays a little tidbit from the theme music.

There are quite a few good laughs in here. This film is very suitable for the older kids, but not for babies; teens and adults with a since of humor will also enjoy this flick. It will even be nice throughout the year!

Add this to your list of favorite Christmas programs! After seeing the show on NBC, I had to own it for my 9 year old daughter (OK, so it was really for me!)

This is a very cute show based on a toe-tapping song by the incomparable Harry Connick Jr. Watch as Eubie the Elf tries to spread a little holiday cheer and niceness. Go out and get yours today- you won't want to wait until next year to see this!

This movie was so good, Eubie, the main elf is so cute and so funny. The Christmas story is really great, and I loved the animation. Christmas is my favorite time of year, and this movie really gets you into the spirit.

The music was really fun, and especially the song called The happy Elf. I loved how they showed Eubie skateboarding around Santa's workshop. I also really liked Santa. This movie is so funny, it will keep you laughing!

I hope they make more of these movies, it's one of my all time favorites!

Couldn't agree more! If you liked "The Polar Express", then you will love this movie. Boasting musical numbers and lovable characters, viewers will join Eubie on his Christmas adventures. For a preview, check out [...]. The dvd has numerous special features, including printable holiday cards and a Bluesville Coloring Book!
"The Happy Elf" is great for kids of all ages. The dvd 'sleds' into town on Tuesday, December 6th!

I saw the trailer for this movie on its website, thehappyelf.com, it is so cute! I am always looking for new Christmas movies to watch with my kids, and this one looks perfect! I have already ordered it, and can't wait until it comes out on Dec. 6th.

Watch the trailer, and there are even some really cute games on the website to play. The characters are adorable too! I think this will be a new favorite!

The Happy Elf was given to me by a friend as a Christmas gift. I have to admit I had not heard of it, even though it made an appearance on NBC. I really enjoyed the 3-D action. The story was good enough to entertain me for the whole 45 minutes. Harry Conick Jr. did an excellent job with the narration and the music! He pinned the whole original score, and I really enjoyed that.

The DVD set came in a neat box that lights up and plays some of the original soundtrack. There are also great extras including an interview with Harry Conick Jr. and a CD-Rom that allows you to make your own Christmas cards, this will come in handy for next Christmas!

This is a fun movie for old and young (but maybe not too young). I believe that all who like to be entertained, and kind of dig Christmas will enjoy this creative show!

I just happened upon this little gem when it premiered on (i believe) NBC on a friday night. I'm so glad I stumbled upon this movie. It was a great modern Christmas animated feature. Eubie, the Happy Elf, was hilarious! His facial expressions and joyful attitude were fun to watch. and those teeth of his! lol

I was surprised by how delightful this short animated feature was and i recommend it to both young and old. It's something you can watch over and over every year during and even after Christmas time.
