So, you have this problem. Christmas is hurtling towards you at the speed of light and you really want to ring it in with your favorite goofy holiday classic. You know, the Will Ferrell masterpiece, "Elf". But who has the time?!

A little Christmas magic can fix that. Or, more accurately, writer and animator David Dutton of CineFix can. He's turned the entirety of the 2003 classic into an adorable 120-second 8-bit animated film. And that, kids, is how retro animation saved Christmas. Thank you Santa CineFix!
