Have you herd the news? Your favorite sub-zero heroes are back in a holiday adventure for the whole family! When Sid accidentally destroys Manny's heirloom Christmas rock and ends up on Santa's "naughty list," he leads a hilarious quest to the North Pole to make things right and ends up making things much worse. Now it's up to Manny and his prehistoric posse to band together and save Christmas for the entire world!
Animated fun, slapstick humor, and more than a touch of the absurd make for an entertaining 21-minute Christmas special starring favorite Ice Age characters Sid the sloth, Manny the mammoth and his wife Ellie, Diego the saber-toothed tiger, and of course the acorn-hungry saber-toothed squirrel Scratte. Manny and Ellie are excitedly preparing to share their holiday traditions with their new daughter Peaches, and the first item on their list is Manny's heirloom Christmas rock. Sid, being Sid, accidentally breaks the heirloom and earns himself a place on Santa's naughty list. When Sid tries to substitute a decorated tree for the Christmas rock, the others laugh at his efforts, and his angry tirade ends with Sid, Peaches, Crash, and Eddie heading to the North Pole to let Santa himself weigh in on the issue. Manny, Ellie, and Diego go after the others and, after encounters with a flying reindeer named Prancer, an army of mini-sloths, and a huge avalanche, it looks like there may not be a Christmas at all. Can a band of prehistoric misfits possibly save the holiday? And who would have guessed that this motley crew started some of the most famous Christmas traditions way back in the Ice Age?
