* Notably, the short, dimwitted elves in ''Film/RiseOfTheGuardians'' don't actually make toys (that duty falls to the [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Yetis]]) and are generally pretty useless. North (i.e. SantaClaus) just seem to keep them around out of pity.

* ''Film/TheSantaClause'' trilogy featured child-like elves who were ReallySevenHundredYearsOld. (Bernard, Santa's second-in-command, is noticeably taller and played by a teenager.) After meeting them in his "[[OrWasItADream dream]]," Scott objects to the more "dwarf-like" interpretation of Christmas elves that his advertising company was going to use in a commercial.

Interestingly, Christmas Elves aren't actually elves in all countries. For instance, the French version of the Santa Claus mythos calls them "lutins" (the most widespread type of LittlePeople, essentially comparable to {{Leprechauns}} without the Irish stereotypes), as opposed to "elfes" (the French word for elves). Because of this, some European depictions of the elves, while generally similar to the American version, may exhibit dwarf-like beards that would look out of place on an "elf".
