Will Ferrell's 'Elf' has long become a Christmas classic in its own right, but while NBC busies itself with live-action musicals of 'Peter Pan,' Buddy will have his own song to sing with a brand-new animated musical special 'Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas.' 'The Big Bang Theory''s Jim Parsons will lend his voice to the title role, but who else will be heard when NBC sings loud for all the world to hear?
