Elf Bowling: The Movie (or known onscreen as Elf Bowling; The Movie - The Great North Pole Elf Strike) is a 2007 CGI-animated film (or in this case "an abstract art project"), directed by Dave Kim, based on NStorm's Christmas-themed Elf Bowling computer games.


Santa Maria Clausewitz Kringle and his brother, Dingle "Let Me Mingle" Kringle, are pirates roaming the open sea. After getting kicked off their ship by their own crew, they become trapped in ice and float until they wash ashore at the North Pole. There, they meet elves who recognize Santa as the prophesied "white beard" and they thaw him and Dingle out. Shortly afterwards, they ask Santa to lead their factory. The elves already had been making toys, but they didn't have anything to do with them, so they had to eat it in order to survive in the cold wasteland. Santa had the idea of giving the toys to the world's children, and thus, Christmas is born. After 1400 years, Santa becomes sick of his brother Dingle loafing around in his apartment and insists that he leave. This upsets Dingle, so he plots against Santa in order to take over Christmas from him. He challenges Santa to a game of Elf Bowling, but after the elves discover he cheated, his plan is foiled. He then tricks Santa into getting frozen, and writes a fake note about how Santa hates the elves and is leaving. This upsets the elves, and Dingle uses the opportunity to make them follow him on a trip to Fiji. After Santa's wife finds him, Santa must get back to the elves in order to save Christmas. While Dingle hypnotizes the elves, Santa figures out a way to reverse the process, thwarting Dingle's plan and saving Christmas
