Last Christmas he gave us his heart-shaped hugs, and the very next year he's back to save the day!
Last night, on the Late Late Show, full-time legend Adam King took over as host and asked Ryan Tubridy to team up with him again for a new show - Adam Saves Christmas.
The short animation will premiere on RTÉjr TV on Christmas Eve and will star Adam alongside Ryan Tubridy as the voice of Santa.
It will be really fun right before bedtime as everyone waits for the real Santa to come!
Here's the story...(and check out the trailer up top)
It's Christmas Eve and Adam, Speedy, Bubby, and Zuzu need to get back to planet Earth in time for Christmas to see what Santa will bring.
But Christmas is in trouble, as Adam discovers when Santa calls to tell them the Northern Lights aren’t working and it’s so dark, he can’t find his reindeer.
Unless Adam can figure out what’s happening to the Aurora, Christmas will be ruined!
And so the adventure begins for Adam and his crew to save Christmas!
The animation will also feature Paul Tylak as Bubby, Nina Wadia as Shelby, Bonnie O'Meara (star of Maddie + Triggs on RTÉjr Radio) as Speedy, Portia McLoughlin as Zuzu, and Seána Kerslake as Frizzle.
Kavaleer previously announced a new animated series inspired by and starring Adam, entitled Adam ❤ Adventure.
With 150 million children living with additional needs worldwide, the show will introduce much-needed on-screen representation.
Motivated by the magic of this production, the team at RTÉjr commissioned the special Christmas animation.
Eimear O'Mahony, Executive Producer Children and Young People's Programming, RTÉ : "We are delighted to be lighting up our Christmas schedule on RTÉjr with Adam Saves Christmas. Adam is a real inspiration and his message of positivity and joy is something that we think is really important to get out there. It's very hard not to be smiling from ear to ear by the end of this animation."
David King, Adam's father: "We are so excited about this collaboration between RTÉjr and Kavaleer. Adam just can't believe he is going to have his own Christmas special! The journey over the last year in developing Adam ❤ Adventure has been incredible as it has celebrated Adam, a wheelchair user, as the hero. We are delighted the people of Ireland will get an early insight into the potential of this groundbreaking animation on Christmas Eve."
Kavaleer CEO, Andrew Kavanagh said: "We are delighted to be working with Adam and RTÉjr on his very first adventure, Adam Saves Christmas. This special will introduce Irish audiences to Adam’s crew; Bubby, Speedy, Zuzu, and Shelby - and also to a particularly nasty alien who is trying to spoil Christmas for Santa and all the children!
Young audiences will also learn a little bit about how our sun helps create the spectacular Northern Lights, with a little help from our brilliant space expert - Dr Norah Patten. We always knew there was nothing Adam couldn’t do once he put his heart into it, so children all over Ireland can rest assured that the fate of Christmas is in safe hands!"
