Several local children hear Santa calling them telepathically and run to him. One boy asks why Santa does not fly back to the North Pole on a plane; he explains that he cannot abandon his sleigh and needs their help pulling it out of the sand.
The kids bring him several animals, including a pig, a sheep, a donkey, a horse, and a gorilla.
The actions available -- and the results -- depend on a set of statistics, which represent the player's progress toward the game's goals: The current energy is displayed in the upper left corner of the window at (almost) all times.
The other statistics are shown in a black book, "Sonic's Journal" in the upper left corner of the Living Room.
They are Barry Mahon's previously filmed 1970 adaptations of Hans Christian Andersen's Thumbelina or Benjamin Tabart's Jack and the Beanstalk.
In Santa's workshop in the North Pole, Santa's elves sing about Christmas nearing and Santa's absence.
This had the added advantage of establishing Cream in the games before television, as she was to appear in the first episode of Sonic X in March 2003.
Cream is amongst the youngest of the Sonic characters, and still retains a childish naïveté which influences her interactions with other members of the cast.
Winer to frame Barry Mahon's Childhood Productions films for a Christmas release.
The threadbare plot concerns Santa Claus's attempts to free his sleigh from the sands of a Florida beach, assisted by local children.
Different prints of the film feature one of two films-within-the-film (that takes up a majority of the film itself).
She's also one of the few animal protaganists to have any relatives in the games: her mother, Vanilla the Rabbit, who's raised Cream to be unfailingly polite and kind to others - even Dr. At times, Cream is to Amy Rose what Tails is to Sonic: the younger and slightly awe-struck sidekick.
While Cream's innocence and enthusiasm endears her to most of the other characters, it can occasionally get on the nerves of some of her more serious comrades - notably Blaze the Cat in Sonic Rush.
The player takes the role of Sonic the Hedgehog, whose across-the-street neighbor, Vanilla the Rabbit, has a huge favor to ask: she needs to go away for a week and can't take Cream with her. Most of the time, the window displays a room, with an icon of Cream in the upper right corner.
