Santa Inc.

Recommended Posts

Santa Inc. is a Christmas-themed adult stop-motion animated feminist comedy series for HBO Max. The eight-episode half-hour series will premiere on December 2 on HBO Max, all the episodes will be released at the same time.

Santa Inc. is the story of Candy Smalls (Sarah Silverman), the No. 2 executive vice president, the highest-ranking female elf in the North Pole. When the successor to Santa Claus (Seth Rogen) is poached by Amazon on Christmas Eve, Candy goes for her ultimate dream - to become the first female Santa Claus in the history of Christmas.

Gabourey Sidibe is Goldie, an openly bisexual and fervently single reindeer who has been one of Candy’s best friends since childhood. Goldie is on the “B-team” of reindeer, which means she trains as hard as the all-male A-team, but she receives none of the glory.

Leslie Grossman plays Cookie, who is described as a “frazzled and loudmouthed gingerbread woman,” who also happens to be a mother and Candy’s friend. 


Craig Robinson voices Junior, the leader of the reindeer pack (aka the A-Team) that pulls Santa’s sled. He belittles the Reindeer, yells at anyone in his way, uses his fame for no good, gets into fights, humiliates the weak and really has it in for Candy.

Joel Kim Booster plays Jingle Jim, Santa’s chief of staff and right-hand man who is considered “the manipulation machine” and the man who gets his hands dirty, so Santa doesn’t have to.

Nicholas Braun voices Devin, who is a human frat boy from North Pole University who takes an internship at Santa Inc and specifically begins to work with Candy. He is burly, bearded and jolly - like a young Santa, but in sweats and cargo pants. He wants nothing more than to one day get a job at the company.

Maria Bamford voices two characters, Mrs. Claus and Big Candy. Mrs. Claus, Santa’s wife, the First Lady of the North Pole, is cheerful and polite. She is a woman who isn’t weak minded or mired in tradition. Big Candy is Candy’s mother who is also an elf. She is doting, but overbearing and wants her daughter to find a husband. Big Candy lives with and off of her daughter, Candy.
