Santa's Workshop at the North Pole is abuzz with excitement and activity. Christmas is right around
the corner! The Elves are busily preparing toys and gifts for children all around the world, but their
tasks aren't enough to keep them from gossiping about the new Elf on the block. Poor Elfis is the
target of their ridicule and jokes because he looks unusual and acts differently than all of the other
Elves. They even accuse him of being an Elf Impersonator! Feeling unloved and downtrodden, Elfis
sings the blues and runs away from Santa's Workshop. When Santa, his reindeer and Mrs. Claus
learn what has happened, they are outraged. Santa sends the reindeer out to find Elfis and bring
him back. Meanwhile, he and Mrs. C. remind the rest of the Elves that they should accept others for
who they are, no matter what their differences. The Elves are ashamed of themselves, and when
the reindeer bring Elfis back (yay!), they apologize and ask him to lead them in a song of
celebration. He agrees, naturally, and the whole lot of them sing and dance together in a lively
Christmas finale!
