Well, luckily for us fans all over the globe, and just ready for this years Christmas watching, 'Santa's Magic Toy Bag' has been lovingly re-released by Legend Films!

Fusco was the creator and producer of NBC's award-winning 'Alf' (1986-1990) and the writer/puppeteer/voice behind the iconic TV alien! Sherman had worked in nearly every department before he came to the mail room. After some letters to Santa were almost burned because Sherman had them put in the wrong place, he was asked to leave there too. He got a chance to help work in the kitchen with Mrs. Claus.
After that doesn't work out he finally gets to meet Santa who asks him if he is happy here. Sherman says that everything he does seems to go wrong, that he is trying but something seems to be missing. Santa entrusts him with the job of guarding Santa's Magic Toy Bag.
