For years children across the world have been captivated by the magical 'Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story', the original Elf On The Shelf programme. This would provide hours of entertainment with kids in the UK watching it over and over again as it was included in streaming services. It's funny, action packed and only 25 or so minutes long explaining the musical story of Elf On The Shelf.

We found it originally years ago on Amazon's Prime Video and then recently in 2020 it moved over to Netflix as they acquired the rights to develop it. However, as of today the programme can not be found on either streaming network.

Netflix does offer 'Elf Pets: Santa's Reindeer Rescue' for viewing, which is a sequel, but it doesn't quite cut it. 

For now maybe parent's will need to stick to the traditional Elf On The Shelf story book which arrives with the official Elf On The Shelf.

UPDATE: We found someone had uploaded the full version to Youtube 4 years ago. The quality isn't great, but it's watchable. We're not sure how long this will be available:
