La freccia azzurra

La freccia azzurra

La freccia azzurra is a 1996 Italian animated film directed by Enzo D'Alò, based on a tale by Gianni Rodari.


On the Epiphany Eve, La Befana falls ill and must take off for a night, recruiting Scarafoni to help deliver all the toys that must go to the Italian children. No one but the toys knows that Scarafoni plans to auction off the toys to the highest bidder, which means that the toys won't make it to the children who have been good all year and therefore deserve them. The toys decide to deliver themselves: the story follows them as they struggle to avoid the heartless Scarafoni and to find their true homes.
