The Secret World of Santa Claus: Elves in Toyland & The Secret World of Santa Claus: A Present for Santa
Kids and families will count down to Christmas with the DVD debut of this beloved international sensation. The two special two-disc sets each feature a dozen episodes of the timeless animated series. In The Secret World of Santa Claus: Elves in Toyland, Santa, his nine reindeer and trusty elves visit the real world before sleighing into a land full of enchantment. But when they arrive, they discover the meddlesome Gruzzlebeard has cast a wicked spell on all the toys, making them come to life. With Christmas fast approaching, Santa and his elves must undo the maleficent magic before it’s too late. And in The Secret World of Santa Claus: A Present for Santa, children from a nearby village work together with Santa’s elves to make him a gift so he won’t be the only person on the planet who never receives presents on Christmas. While they’re hard at work, the dastardly Gruzzlebeard unleashes a pair of hungry termites that nearly eat Santa’s house, along with his trademark suit with special powers. Santa is very distressed, but when he awakens to a big present outside, courtesy of the children, he discovers that all hope is not lost.
