Consisting of two specials and an advent calendar of 24 shorts. Spike is a festive children’s animation following the adventures of a young elf who graduates to Santa’s workshop.
In this two-part holiday entry, SPIKE is the first new recruit to Santa’s workshop in a very long time. Supervisor Raymond takes the young elf in hand. Spike is enthusiastic and eager to do well. But on his very first assignment, he somehow manages to lose the mailbag with all of Santa’s letters in it! When he realizes the bag has been mixed up with the bags of fish that the penguin residents of Ping Ville have stored in their secured “fish bank,” Spike sets out to make things right in time for Christmas.
In the second story set one year later, Tony, the still-incorrigible leader of the polar bears, and his very ornery mom have kidnapped Santa’s reindeer and plan to hold them for ransom. Once again, Spike is on the case and the chase is on. Spike’s cousin Dorothy, an advocate for gender equality — she believes Santa should have female elves on his staff — is there to join Raymond and Paco and face off against the wicked bears. Spike and company must contend with a giant robot, the intimidating bears of Teddy Ville, and the many obstacles Tony sets in their way to hide the reindeer. Will Spike be able to save Christmas yet again?
