Nine-year-old Taylor McTuttle has reached a crossroads. Does he believe Santa Claus really knows who is naughty or nice? Does he even believe in Santa Claus anymore? An Elf's Story is the inspirational tale of Chippey, the young scout elf who is assigned by Santa to restore Taylor's belief in Christmas magic. When the boy breaks the number one Elf on the Shelf rule, Chippey loses his Christmas magic, the entire McTuttle family loses its scout elf, and both Taylor and Chippey lose their self-respect. Through the power of love and forgiveness, both of them learn the most important lesson of all: that true belief cannot be taught. A family holiday classic for generations to come, An Elf's Story is filled with fun, music and the timeless message that Christmas is something we carry in our hearts.

    By Eve2005
    We should have read previous comments about this only being 26 mins. We thought more episodes would be available for that price. feeling a bit ripped off just before xmas.
  • A Christmas classic!!

    By Doodle manic
    My children have seen this movie about 20 times this year--and they still ask to watch it every night! It's a beautiful story about Christmas magic and belief (and flying elves who visit the North Pole every night), and it's got some of the loveliest songs I've heard in a long time. (One of them is a Christmas lullaby, and it chokes me up every time I hear it.) It's hard as a parent to find new holiday specials that are magical, like the old classics that we still love as adults. This one is it. No surprise that it's from the same people who created The Elf on the Shelf.
  • Love it

  • What a rip off

    By yogicyclistrunner
    My kids loved this movie, but I am shocked to have paid 9.99 for a 23 minute "TV show".. Totally false advertising that you're buying the "Season Pass".. What season pass?? Just one 23 minute show.
  • What??

    By Lazurick
    My son got an iTunes card for Christmas. He spent most of it on this 26 minute show, believing there were more episodes as stated! Cute movie, but RIP OFF!!!!
  • Rip off

    By Kerrypeach
    $9.99 for 26 min. It's very misleading.
  • overpriced

    By nckooo
    It says season - but in the end you only get only one episode (26 minutes) for the price of what you would usually pay for a full movie. It’s a nice little Christmas storie - but not worth that price.
  • Full season = one episode

    By Teejuhdubya
    Completely false advertising. Not sure how one 26-minute show constitutes a full season of anything--and for $9.99? Please. I'm feeling very swindled.
  • A Thinly Disguised Commercial for Elf on the Shelf

    By Malleus Invictus
    This is an animated feature designed to sell a seasonal toy. If you have small children they may enjoy the very simple story, but it has nothing of interest for adults. The musical numbers are so ridiculous that you will be rolling your eyes back in your head. The good news is that there is nothing scary or offensive in this show and the quality of the computer animation is excellent. The scenes and characters are rendered beautifully, it is the narrative that falls flat. Set your expectations and audience age low enough and this one will barely meet expectations. That's a disappointment because the show is pretty enough to have been a classic.


  • Rip Off!

    By TonyBCM
    The show was pretty good but it was only 23 mins. I paid $10 for one show!! What about the season pass!

    By Jt8018
    7.99 for a 26 minute single episode. Should be 1.99 For 1.99 I’d tell you it was worth. But for 7.99 I just can’t say it was worth it.

    I love ❀️ this show elf on the shelf, it cool
  • Only 1 episode?

    By Sandwolf1
    I bought this 'series' thinking that there would be multiple episodes.....turns out that there's only 1 episode that is less than 25 minutes long. Calling this a series is ridiculously.

    By TonyGardner
    Great for families but crazy price. Description said β€œseason” and have NO indication of length. C’mon Apple, be more forthcoming about what we’re getting.
