Synopsis: It's Christmas Eve in a typical suburban household -- two worn-out parents, and three wildly excited children. In a desperate attempt to get the kids to sleep, their father tells them a homespun bedtime story, an instant Christmas classic -- the story of Santa's little ferrets. Although very few people know it, it seems that Santa brings an elite security detail with him every Christmas Eve -- three highly trained ferrets. Their job?
Make sure no one's awake, trying to catch a glimpse of Santa. But on this particular night the unexpected happens, and the line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred. Suddenly, the ferrets' entire security operation is in jeopardy!
Sam is a six-year-old orphan with a pet ferret named Booger. Sam is as cute as a button, but he just can't seem to find a
family who wants him. When the newest prospective parents come to visit, Sam decides to impress them with a few magic tricks. He becomes "The Great Sambini" with Booger as his assistant. When his most amazing trick flops, Sam is deflated but not defeated, and with Booger's help he conjures up a different kind of magic.
