* ''WesternAnimation/TheStoryOfSantaClaus'' has them living at the North Pole before [[SantaClaus Nicholas Claus]] and [[MrsClaus his wife Gretchen]] arrive. They save the life of an elf child and get a wish; Nicholas wishes for his dream to deliver toys to every child in one night, and the rest of the special is him working with the elves trying to achieve it. ([[MagicAIsMagicA If they can't, they lose their magic, and Nicholas can't take the wish back once he realizes how hard it is]].) The story ends with the two humans granted "honorary elf status" and the group deciding to do this every year.

* In ''Film/SantaBaby,'' full-sized actors play the elves, but they're almost all TheDitz, explaining why protagonist Mary (Santa's daughter) has to take over for her father instead of passing the job onto one of them. (Although the sequel features an elf who actually ''does'' want the job.)



* In the animated Christmas special ''WesternAnimation/SantaClausIsCominToTown'', the Kringles appear to be little old men with beards.

They all look like short men with beards.beards, except for [[TheSmurfettePrinciple their matriarch]], Tanta Kringle. Kris was about as tall as them as a child and is about twice their height as an adult.



* On ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'''s first ChristmasEpisode, two elves show up in Danville to investigate when the entire town is inexplicably declared Naughty (due to [[MadScientist Doofenshmirtz]]'s [[ThemeNaming Naughty-inator]] messing up their readings).

* On ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'''s first ChristmasEpisode, two elves show up in Danville to investigate when the entire town is inexplicably declared Naughty (due to [[MadScientist Doofenshmirtz]]'s [[ThemeNaming Naughty-inator]] messing up their readings). Notably, the first few scenes of them were at the North Pole without any humans around, so the fact that they're only a few inches high was used as a humorous [[TheReveal Reveal]].



* According to the [[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past]], elves are actually [[UnreliableNarrator martians]] enslaved by the primitive man-ape Santa Claws to fashion toys for him. Then they tried to unionize, so he replaced them with robots, leading to a war between the machines and the martians/elves that may have wiped out the martians/elves entirely...
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': The Underpants Gnomes spend December helping Santa. They spend the rest of the year in their [[MissingStepsPlan quest for profit]].

** They also do a Christmas special where Grim takes them to the North Pole to prove Santa's real. It turns out he (and all the elves) have been turned into vampires by [[spoiler: Mrs. Claus, who just wanted a break]]. They're short, cute and make toys, but mostly stay in the background.
* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': [[BadSanta Robot Santa]] has his headquarters on the polar ice caps of Neptune, and has enslaved the Neptunians, forcing them to work in his weapons factory. They're malnourished, thus their growth is stunted -- making them LittlePeople compared to the human-sized Neptunians seen elsewhere in the series. They aren't happy at all, they live in horrible conditions, and they hate Robot Santa as much as everybody else does. [[spoiler:They're also gay.]]

* ''Film/TheSantaClause'' trilogy featured child-like elves who were ReallySevenHundredYearsOld. Bernard was the oldest one and resembled a teenager.
** The film's interpretation of slow aging would appear to agree with Tolkien: The word ''yen'' can mean 100 or 144 solar years in various dialects of Quenya, yet the Eldar speak of those as men speak of years.

* ''Anime/{{Berserk}}'''s Elves are little pixie-ish creatures that fly around with wings and have the power to heal people. We have only seen Puck and Evarella so far, but we may be seeing how varied they can be when Guts and crew arrive in Elfland to see the King about Casca's madness.
