An enchanted being from the Emerald Isle must rescue his village from an evil monster in this animated adventure from Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass. Dinty Doyle the Leprechaun wants to find the ideal Christmas tree for his family's home, but just when he's found a seemingly perfect pine near the Irish coast, he discovers a terrible banshee has been trapped inside the tree. Dinty accidentally releases the creature, which soon sweeps through the Leprechaun's village, stealing the golden treasures they'd been saving for Christmas presents. Can Lord Patrick, king of the little people, conquer the banshee and save Christmas? The Leprechaun's Christmas Gold features the voice talents of Art Carney and Peggy Cass.
