More important to Kris throughout all of this is to get Doris and her daughter Susan to believe in him. (1959, 1hr)

Hobbs, on Santa’s naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can.
