''Spike'' is a French computer-animated Christmas Movie about a novice Elf at Santa's Workshop who accidentally loses the mailbag containing the letters from children to Santa (actually it was the fault of his friend, a blue penguin)inside the bank vault of the local Penguin Village, and must then break into it to recover them with the help of an older Elf overseer, unaware that a couple of polar bears are trying to rob the bank at the same time!

The film had a sequel, titled simply Spike 2 (they were released together in DVD.) Taking place a year later, Tony (the polar bear thief from the first part) has been forced to work at the Workshop to make amends. He claims to be rehabilitated- but no sooner he leaves than Santa's reindeer are kidnapped! Spike and his friends (with the help of female elf cousin, a would-be TV reporter) must find and rescue them.
