A young orphan boy from Sydney, Australia, who's name is Nicholas Barnsworth. His heart is pure and he believes in Santa Claus. This is how he is whisked out of Australia and brought to the North Pole. He has 15 years to learn the tricks of the “Santa Claus” trade. He needs to master such skills as dropping down chimney flues, driving the sleigh, delivering gifts, and inventing new toys. Nicholas will discover that Santa has a lot on his plate, each and every day and not only at the end of the year! Luckily Humphrey, the chief elf, Waldorf, the reindeer, Tim-Tim and Nic-Nac, the Eskimo kid twins and Rufus, the little polar bear, are more than ready to help Nicholas to become a full-fledged Santa!
