In the film, the North Pole has a new litter of playful pups! However, when the frisky foursome — Hope, Jingle, Charity and Noble — practically destroy Santa’s Workshop with their mischievous gamboling, they realize the best way to prove that they’re responsible enough to become Santa’s Helpers is to show how well they can spread the Christmas spirit all by themselves. With help from a magic crystal, they start granting everyone’s wishes. But their good intentions backfire when one unhappy boy asks that Christmas go away forever! With his wish impetuously fulfilled, and the joyous spirit quickly disappearing from the planet, Mrs. Claus and the pups have to find a way to reverse the spell — or risk losing Christmas forever!
This cute litter consists of three female pups and one male pup: Hope is the daring tomboy who wears a backwards red cap and rarely looks before she leaps; Jingle is the diva with a bell on her collar who loves to sing, but can’t carry a tune; Charity is the girliest and most self-centered of the pups, with a mistletoe barrette, who has yet to learn the meaning of her name; and Noble is the mischievous only brother and self-appointed leader who is distinguished by a cheeky black spot around his eye.
Will these pups save Christmas and make everyone jingle their bells and shoot their eyes out? Of course! Uh..spoilers.
Starring Cheryl Ladd, Danny Woodburn, Pat Finn, Kaitlyn Maher, Josh Feldman, George Newbern, and Obba Babatunde, with voices by Marlowe Peyton as Jingle, Tatiana Gudegast as Hope, Aidan Gemme as Noble, and G. Hannelius as Charity. Directed by Robert Vince and written by Robert Vince and Anna McRoberts.
