22. Elf Pets: A Fox Cub’s Christmas Tale (2020)

The Elf on the Shelf – Elf Pets: A Fox Cub’s Christmas Tale is a CGI-animated Christmas special that is adapted from The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition and Elf Pets: An Arctic Fox Tradition. This very popular holiday-themed franchise has spawned a healthy following from fans and features wonderful musical numbers and heartfelt adventures. There are several Christmas cartoon specials to enjoy on the streaming service, but none of them offer the yuletide experience that The Elf on a Shelf can pleasantly provide people for the special season. If there is one endeavor you don’t want to miss this holiday season, it’s this one.

The compelling Christmas animated flick is set against the backdrop of the Northern Lights and follows the one and only Scout Elf Newsey Noel as he investigates how Santa Claus is able to make the trip all around the world in one night to be able to bring every child on the planet presents. She’ll be joined by a boy named Michael, the Elf on a Shelf Scout Elves, and tons of adorable Arctic Fox Elf Pets in order to uncover this interesting mystery and learn that there is nothing more powerful than hope.
