L-R: Maisie, Gene, Cactus Pete, and Albert in Nickelodeon’s TV movie, Albert.

Nick's all-new holiday movie Albert tells the story of a tiny Douglas fir tree 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 palm 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. The hour-long CG-animated TV movie features a star-studded voice cast, including Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) in the title role; Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live) as Maisie, the persistently positive palm tree; Judah Friedlander (30 Rock) as Gene, the abrasive and blisteringly honest weed; Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street) as Cactus Pete; Cheri Oteri (Saturday Night Live) as a TV news correspondent; Brenna Yde (School of Rock) as Molly, Earth Mama’s granddaughter; John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) as Donny, Molly’s father; and Mary Pat Gleason (Mom) as Earth Mama, the owner and caretaker of the nursery, and features two original songs, “The Best Thing That Can Happen to Christmas” and “Christmasiest Christmas,” performed by the voice cast.
