I hadn’t seen any of the Santa Paws movies yet until this one. Doodle and I spent last weekend with a movie night. He had started watching it earlier in the day and when I got home he said we “had” to watch it! lol
First of all, the movie is absolutely adorable! Those puppies, how could you NOT adore them? When the movie started I was really surprised to see Cheryl Ladd as Mrs. Claus.
The other piece I was somewhat surprised about was all of the music, well, Christmas songs, that are in the movie. It’s not very often you get a fun family movie with songs like this any more! Yes, Christmas songs in the past had lots of singing, but you don’t see it that much these days.
There was a great lesson in the movie about how our attitude affects others and that we need to think of others, especially during the holidays. I liked that each of the puppies had a name that went along with a characteristic they had. Each of them had to realize that those characteristics needed to be worked on.
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.
See what I mean? A good talking point for my kids about their characteristics!
Here’s what the movie is about:
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!
