Detailed Synopsis

At the North Pole, Santa Claus and Santa Paws walk to a cave and Santa Paws tells Santa that if the Great Christmas Icicle melts there will be no Christmas magic. Santa mentions that kids these days only think about themselves instead of giving to others less fortunate. Puppy Paws flies on Santa's sleigh and rides it to Santa's workshop. He says he wants to go for another ride, but Comet tells him they are too tired. Eli the Elf and Eddy the Elf Dog sing Christmas songs in the workshop. Ellis also joins in on the singing along with Elpert. Puppy Paws walks into the workshop and turns the workshop speed knob to fast, causing chaos. Ellis walks over to Elpert and Elpert tells him he checked the speed knob just a few minutes ago. Eli and Eddy walk up to them. They all see Puppy Paws next to the knob and Puppy Paws is brought in front of Santa and Santa Paws. Eddy tells Puppy Paws the elves are very upset with him and are now behind schedule. Santa Paws tells Puppy Paws that he is grounded until further notice. Puppy Paws says he wishes Christmas would go away and then leaves.

In the town of Fernfield, Sheriff Dan leads a group of carolers while Sniffer, Buddha, Budderball, B-Dawg, Mudbud and Rosebud watch. Sniffer starts to sing along and invites the others to join in, but B-Dawg says he doesn't sing, he raps. Budderball tells Sniffer he is still in trouble for eating the Thanksgiving turkey. Sniffer asks if he is worried Santa Paws won't visit him. Mudbud tells Sniffer, if Santa Paws was real there would be more soot from him coming down the chimney. Rosebud says she also doesn't really believe in Santa Paws, but likes the presents, and Buddha chastises her for never being satisfied with what she has. Sheriff Dan thanks everyone for coming to see the annual lighting of the town Christmas tree and turns on the tree lights. Stan Cruge drives by in his vehicle and the lights on the tree explode. As Stan drives by, Tiny hides behind a trash can. She knocks over the trash can when Stan leaves and finds a large mostly uneaten steak inside. She gives a prayer of thanks, but as she is eating the steak, she is caught by Stan.

Puppy Paws stares at the melting Great Christmas Icicle and says he just wants to be a normal puppy and wishes Christmas would disappear and the Great Christmas Icicle cracks.
