Synopsis

SPOILER: Plot details or story follow.
The Elves at the Workshop

Three elves named Flappy, Snappy, and Mr. Jingles (played by Tasha, Uniqua, and Pablo, respectively) introduce themselves on a picnic table. They tell the viewer that they use tiny hammers to build anything. Then they tell the viewer that they are no ordinary elves - they are the Action Elves, who save Christmas. Then they report to the North Pole and enter Santa's Workshop.

Santa speaks to them by phone and tells them terrible news: his magic sack has been stolen by the Abominable Brothers (played by Austin and Tyrone). They go to the Rocket Reindeer and fly to the brothers' igloo.

The elves can not see where the igloo is, but they do see two snowmen carrying a red sack. They try to land, but accidentally land about a mile behind them.

Fat Tyrone

Tyrone and Austin as the Abominable Brothers.

Meanwhile, the brothers are hauling the sack to the igloo. They do not know that the sack is magic yet. Tyrone is pulling it while Austin is pushing. They have a conversation about how a tiny sack is so heavy. Then they wish it was lighter, and the sack turns smaller. Then they wish for more things. The sack grows legs and starts to walk. Then they head to the igloo.

The elves have landed, but the Rocket Reindeer snapped in half. They start to walk and realize it is a lot harder. Then they spot the snowmen and start running. But the brothers already opened the igloo door and wish the sack was a couch.

The Rocket Reindeer.

The elves have a plan to lure the brothers outside. Snappy makes a wind-up robot toy with her tiny hammer and drops it purposefully on the igloo floor. The robot walks outside and the brothers follow. Then Flappy and Mr. Jingles wish the sack was a sack again, not a couch. Then they start running toward the workshop.

The brothers see the elves stealing the sack and chase them. They start a snowball fight. But during the fight. they all fall into a pit. Then Snappy's cell phone rings. The brothers are extremely mad and take it. The snowmen talk to Santa and realize that the "thieves" are elves and the sack is Santa's.

The five return to the workshop and fill the sack with toys. The elves are grateful and give the brothers two action figures. Then they all see Santa flying with his sack in his sleigh. Then they all return home.
