In the Blackbox
Christmas is near and Elf-tidings has spread the news throughout the village that Santa is searching for an elf to replace old Elf-Hammerhead who is retiring. All the young elves in the village are invited to a party to present their best gift for the children of the world— And the winner will not only join Santa’s workshop, but ride with him on his sleigh on Christmas Eve! Cinder-Elfa’s wicked Stepma-Elfa has forbidden her to attend the party and her mean step-sisters, Drizz-Elfa and Bland-Elfa, plan to take her prize Ballerina Doll and Toy Soldier to present to Santa as their own work. Cinder-Elfa’s small friends, the mice and birds, work together to repair an old stuffed bear so that she will have something to take to the party, only to have it destroyed by Drizz-Elfa and Bland-Elfa. When the toys under the tree come to life with the help of Cinder-Elfa’s Elfin Godmother, she is transformed into a magical elf who arrives at the party with nothing in hand, but with the best gift of all. If only she hadn’t run away before Santa could announce the winner.
