A Christmas Carol that tells of the elf who flies behind Santa cleaning up the reindeer poo.

WRITTEN & DIRECTED: Astrid Wells Cooper
PRODUCER: Nicholas Storr & Astrid Wells Cooper
YEAR: 2016

Douglas is an over looked elf who works tirelessly on Christmas night flying behind Santa, cleaning up all the reindeer poo. He feels unloved and hungry and is disappointed that children leave out food for Santa and the reindeers, but nothing for him. At one house, a wondrous surprise greets him when he finds a card and a slice of cake, especially for him, and his joy de vivre returns. He feels recognized and appreciated and is very happy.

This Christmas Carol encourages children to say thanks to Douglas, he works so hard, poor chap, trailing behind Santa with a great big bag of crap.
