Niko 2 - Little Brother, Big Trouble

Okay, guys, let's make

this practice flight count!

How much fun is this?

Alright, let's just say...

Santa overboard!

How come is it that Santa

never comes on our practice runs?

Do you really want to be dragging

him around the sky?

Okay boys, well done.

Now... a sleigh malfunction!

Come on, Niko!

It's all in the antlers!

Now you try it!

- I did it!

- That's my boy!

Not bad. Not bad at all.

But what if we lose the sleigh?

Try not to scream like a sissy.

Why can't Santa just walk

like everybody else?

And finally, let's check

the Santa speed before C-day.

Now remember what I told you.

Clear your mind and concentrate

on your happy heart. - Got it, Dad.

Up here they call me Prancer.

- Santa Speed, men!

Niko, it'll never work!

Hey it is working! You're doing

it! You're doing Santa speed!

I can't go any... faster!

I can't see! I can't see!

That's better. I can see!


Hello. What's your name?

- Unhand me, madam!

- I love you.

- We just met!

Niko! Are you okay!?

Sorry, Dad. I guess I'll never

be able to fly Santa speed.

Of course you will. It just takes

time... and a happy heart.

You do have a happy heart don't you?

- Sure I do! Let's try it again!

Maybe next weekend.

It's getting a little late.

Your Mom will be wondering

where you are.

If you lived with me and Mom,

in New Home Valley -

we wouldn't have to keep flying

back and forth. - I know, but...

Maybe we could get her

some of that high mountain moss.

She'd really like that,

it's her favorite.

She will be happy just as long as

I bring you home safe and sound.

I guess.

Which means

we won't be doing any of this.

You mean, this?

- Exactly. Or this...

Oh, I'd never do this.

And we certainly won't be

racing home. - Certainly not.

You're going to race home,

aren't you?

Why do they always

make me worry like this?

Niko should be home by now. - He's got

Prancer and Julius to look after him.

A hotheaded reindeer and a chubby

squirrel. What could go wrong?

Finally! And what time

do you call this? Where's Niko?

Don't worry. You know as long as

Niko's with me he's perfectly safe.

- Well... pretty safe.

- Did I win?

What did I say about racing?!

But Mom, if I'm going to learn

how to go Santa speed...

We talked about this.

The boy's too young to go that fast.

I know, but...

- But I wouldn't listen!

Dad was all, like,

"You're too young to go that fast" -

and "you should listen

to your mother."

And I was all like,

"why?" and he was all like -

"because she's a very special lady"

and then his eyes went like this.

Okay. So, I'll see you next

weekend after Christmas, Niko.

Have a merry Christmas, everybody!

You want to go to the wild woods

with us tomorrow?

I hear there's lots of fresh moss

up there. - Yeah! Can I Mom?

Okay. But right now it's time

for dinner. Good night, guys.

So what do you think?

I picked your favorite. - Wow!

There's so much!

Is that just for us two?

Niko, I've been meaning

to talk to you about something.

Me too. I found out today that my

heart isn't as happy as it should be.

So I was thinking

that wouldn't it be great -

if we had someone around

who could help us out? - It would be.

Someone who could help us forage

and keep you company?

I'm really glad that you think so,

Niko. Because I have good news.

We're not going to be alone

anymore. - You mean...?

- Dad!

- No, Niko, wait!

- Hi, Niko.

- But... but...

Niko, this is Lenni.

- It's so nice to finally meet you!

I've heard so much about you.

I was nervous about meeting you. I

thought I wouldn't know what to say.

Thought I'd end up

rambling on about the weather.

But, now that I'm here,

this isn't awkward at all!

I hear it might snow.

- What are you, a weatherman?

There's someone else we'd like you

to meet. - Come and say hi, Jonni.

Hi. Are you my big brother now?

- Big brother?

- Um, so who's hungry?

Starving! Jonni and I brought

something for desert.

Some high mountain moss.

- My favorite.

So, Niko. I couldn't help but notice

it's a bit cloudy out there.

I was saying to your Mom, "I think

we might be in for some rain, dear."

Do you always talk

about the weather? - No.

I was telling a joke...

about the weather.

I don't hear anybody laughing.

"Rain dear"! I just got that!

Niko, why don't you tell us all

about your weekend at Santa's Fell?

It was nothing special.

Just hanging with the Flying Forces.

Wow! The Flying Forces!

Jonni is a big fan of the Flying

Forces. He knows all their names.

Comet, Cupid, Dancer, Dasher,

Blixen, Donner and Vixen!

You forgot Prancer.

- Oh, I always forget him.

That's all right, Jonni.

It could happen to anyone.

Not to me.

You know you'll always be my number

one, Niko, right? - I know that.

I was really hoping you'd be okay

with Lenni coming to live with us.

He's very special to me, and if you

give him a chance, you'll see why.

Well... of course I'm okay with it.

- Really?


- You've made me very happy, Niko.

Sweet dreams, my little man.

I'm really not okay with this.

What am I going to do?

Maybe you should give him a chance.

- I thought you were on my side!

I am! Look, Niko,

I know it's hard, change always is.

But your Mom deserves a happy heart

too. - Yeah. I guess.

And he seems like a nice guy.

He certainly is funny.

I can't help it... "Rain dear"!

"Rain dear"!

Before there was you

We had nothing to do

Before there was you

We were lonely and blue

Alone and estranged

Now that's all changed

And now that you are here

There's nothing to fear

That was beautiful, boys,

just beautiful.

I'm so glad I met you fellas.

I could really use some friends right

now. You are my friends, aren't you?

- Oh, yes!

- Best Friends!


- Good. Because I need a little favor.


Well done!

- Throw it higher, Julius!

This one's for the title!

How about that,

pretty high, right?

Did you hurt yourself, son?

- No, Dad. I'm fine, really I am.

Niko didn't mean any harm.

He just wants to play, too.

Can I play with Niko, Dad? - I think

we'd have to ask Niko about that.

Niko would love to play with Jonni,

wouldn't you? - What?

But we're going to the

Wild Woods with Saga and Wilma!

I think he's cute.

Me too. He reminds me of... me.

You've found yourself a new best

friend. - How could you say that?

After all we've been through, do you

really think that some little kid...

How adorable is that?

So what do you want to do, Jonni?

Do you like games? - I love games!

How about we play hide and seek?

- Really? I'm a great hider!

Let's hope so. You run deep into

the woods and hide. Off you go!

I have a better idea.

You and Niko hide together.

Hey, hang on. That's not...

- I just love hide and seek!

One, two, three...

Does this mean we're a team?

What's it like to fly?

Do you get scared?

Do you really know

all the Flying Forces?

What does Santa's beard smell like?

Will you bring me with you next time?
