Instead he is partnered with an idealistic rookie elf named Lanny (voiced by Derek Richardson) to execute a special Christmas Eve mission. While on their journey, Wayne and Lanny encounter unexpected challenges that push them to their limits and ultimately threaten Christmas for children around the world. But in the end, these two elves work together to guide Santa through a raging snowstorm in order to save Christmas.

Prep & Landing quickly became one of my favorite Holiday cartoons.  I loved this one since it first aired on ABC and was so excited to get the opportunity to own it for my kids.  Now my daughters were still alittle young to really remember the movie but my son and I did.  I especially love the gadgets that Wayne and Lanny get to use.  This dvd is magical for little kids and adults alike.  It is definitely one my kids and I will enjoy for all the Holidays to come.  Also I am super excited to see that a new Prep & Landing will be airing this Holiday on ABC.

The dvd is available now at mass retailers and online at for $13.49.  So grab a copy and watch it with your family this Holiday.
