A fanciful yet environmentally correct yuletide TV movie, directed by Jackie Cooper and starring Jaclyn Smith of Charlie's Angels fame. The story centres on a nasty old oil company planning to drill near Santa's home. One of Santa's elves enlists the help of a mother and her young children to try and save the North Pole, and Christmas. Singer/songwriter Paul Williams plays the elf, while Art Carney delights as Santa.


Santa's North Pole home is threatened when an oil company plans to drill in the vicinity, but the wife and son of a company employee are enlisted to help save the toy-making village from destruction. Festive fantasy, starring Art Carney, Jaclyn Smith, Paul Le Mat and Mason Adams.
