Synopsis: Albert is the story of a tiny Douglas fir tree named Albert who has big dreams of becoming Empire City's most famous Christmas tree. When the search for this year's tree is announced, Albert believes he has found his calling and hits the road with his two best friends, Maisie the persistently positive plam tree, and Gene the abrasive and blisteringly honest weed, to fulfill his destiny. With a few prickly situations along the way, and Cactus Pete out to stop him, Albert learns the true meaning of Christmas.

He's not ready yet.

- Ya got the delivery

for Baker's Hill, Ma?

- It's in the back.

We just need to load the truck.

Sweetie, do Grandma a favor and

take off all those ornaments.

[mellow music]


- Lots of people think

I'm a pipsqueak too.



But my dad always says

it's okay to be small,

as long as it doesn't stop you

from doing big things.

[door thuds closed]

- And she's gone!

- Aah! I'm so glad

she plugged you in!

Oh, you look so nice

all plugged in!

- I do, don't I?




Aw, no.


- Delicious bamboo...

[panda crunching]

is the panda's favorite food.

- Aah! Turn it off,

turn it off!


[jazzy, seductive music]

- Yeah.


- Not in front of

the children!

- Aw, man!

- So the search is on

for the world-famous

Empire City Christmas tree.

I'm here with tree expert

Horton Farber.

Now, professor...


what makes

the perfect Christmas tree?

- Ha ha. Right.

Robust branches

are a must

for any Christmas tree,

the better to hold those

ornaments and lights.

Some delight

at the aroma of a tree,

or "nature's perfume"...


- As I like to call it.

But the truly perfect

Empire City Tree

that captures our hearts

and imaginations,

it radiates all the beauty

and wonder and joy that--

[voice breaks, sobs]

I'm sorry.

That is Christmas.

[uplifting music]

[gasps] Albert!

Everything he said--

that's you!


I can be that tree!

- Yes!

[overlapping encouragement]

- Ha ha ha! You?

- Why not me?

- Tomorrow, I'll be joining

Professor Farber

at Baker's Hill, Vermont,

where he will select

this year's Empire City Tree.

- All right, plants!

Baker's Hill!

We need coordinates!

- We're here,

and Baker's Hill is there.

I'd say it's about 3 inches.
