"These DVD's are the Americanized version of a French animated series. There are 24 regular episodes and one special two-part expisode (one for every day in December through Christmas). The series is intended to ask the question 'What does Santa Claus do the other 364 days?' The answer is that he has adventures with his elves trying to find the perfect presents for good girls and boys around the world. Often his adventures take him into the real world, but sometimes he has adventures in places that are full of magic as well. The stories are really very clever. I particularly like the one where young Leon leads a semi-political movement against Santa Claus telling all the kids that Santa is just a trick by parents to make them be good. Leon's anti-Santa meetings look like mini-Nuremburg rallys.
I taped a bunch of these shows when they appeared on the old Family Channel. Everyone liked them so much that I bought all 7 disks when they came out last Christmas. The Disks are far superior to the video cassettes that were released a few years back. My children watch them year round."
