Old-fashioned and good-natured with some catchy tunes and whimsical characters, this little movie will make a nice addition to family Christmas viewing for even the youngest kids. Sherman is an elf with whom everyone can identify. Who doesn't make mistakes? Who doesn't want a second chance? More than 30 years since it was broadcast on television, this is the first in what is expected to be a series of holiday television shows from the 1980s intended for release by Legend Films, a company noted for film restoration. Paul Fusco, best known for his creation of ALF, is the driving force behind this entertaining puppet special.
