About the DVD
Parents will once again enjoy these beloved, 1980s, holiday puppet specials – not seen since their original Showtime Network debut and never before available in any video format. This is a unique chance for families and children to discover them again for the first time!

From Paul Fusco – creator and producer of NBC’s award-winning Alf (1986-1990) and the writer/puppeteer/voice behind the iconic television alien – these popular holiday TV specials showcase classic, wholesome, family entertainment at its best.

First to be released in the series is Santa’s Magic Toy Bag (1983), on DVD Sept. 30.

In Santa’s Magic Toy Bag, Christmas is bustling, festive and exciting for Santa, Mrs. Claus and all the Elves at the North Pole… Sherman, an aspiring apprentice Elf, tries his best to fit in but can’t seem to do anything right! He’s worked in nearly every department at the North Pole and has triggered a series of disasters everywhere he goes.

Santa tries to bolster Sherman’s self-esteem by entrusting him with the special task of guarding his Magic Toy Bag until Christmas Eve. When Sherman accidentally shrinks the bag by washing it, he fears there might not be a Christmas this year … Unless the accident-prone Elf can finally make things right!

Featuring an original holiday soundtrack and the voice and puppeteering talents of Paul Fusco.

My Take on the DVD
This is a short DVD Christmas story.

Sherman is an apprentice elf in the North Pole and it is almost Christmas Eve. He desires to become a full fledged elf but he is unable to find the right spot for his talents. He is moved from department to department and just about gives up and leaves until Santa shows him how very special he truly is.

This is a story about finding the "magic" in you. All the other elves knew you had to find your own confidence and talent and magic. They could not help Sherman. Sherman finds his talent and magic through accidentally shrinking Santa's magic toy bag. 

It is a delightful story. The characters are similar to the Muppet puppet characters. There is singing in the movie . It is a nice family story.
