The Search for Santa Paws

Disney’s latest direct-to-DVD release The Search for Santa Paws is a prequel to the popular 2009 DVD Santa Buddies.  It is fun and enjoyable, but also somewhat dark and scary in places. 

When Santa goes to New York, he is hit by and taxi and mugged (some of the scary stuff) and wanders aimlessly around NYC with amnesia, getting separated from his dog Paws.  But, when he gets a job as a toy store Santa, some of the holiday magic starts. 

At the same time, Mr. and Mrs. Huckle come to NY to sell a toy store they inherited.  Quinn (Kaitlyn Maher-America’s Got Talent) – an adorable little girl whose parents just died – is dropped off at an orphanage.  Sad and frightened, Quinn meets wonderful little girls, but they are all treated terribly by Ms. Stout (more of the scary stuff) who runs the orphanage. 

From early on though, you know that their paths are going to cross and it will turn out all right.  You may need to reassure your kids though – I did. 

All in all, The Search for Santa Paws was an enjoyable holiday movie with the end filled with seasonal magic and happiness.  Kids will love the fun musical numbers and the exciting adventures though out will undoubtedly want to see it because of their love for the other Bud movies in the past. 

Available on DVD and Blu-Ray.  Extras include deleted scenes and a music video “Deck the Halls” performed by Disney’s Debby Ryan.  Other fun extras are a Sing-Along Mode which brings up the lyrics so your family can sing a long to some of the musical numbers and a interactive animated pop-up book where Buddies Rosebud reads a holiday story.
