Two bears awaken from hibernation and go to town—literally. During their visit, they eat at a diner, dress up at a department store, and stop a couple of bank robbers, all the while mistaking the townspeople's terror for friendliness.
After an exhausting Christmas, Santa and Mrs. Claus head for sunny Mistletoe Island, where they surf, golf, and learn the hula. They even start eating healthy. (No more cookies and milk!) Vacation is so much fun that Santa decides to retire, much to the reindeer and elves' dismay. Can there be a Christmas without Santa-and can Santa be jolly without Christmas?
Santa's reindeer won't be able to fly on Christmas Eve. They're too out of shape. Fortunately the elves build Santa a fancy jet in time to deliver all the gifts. But the new jet crash-lands on rooftops and doesn't have a light as bright as Rudolph's nose. What's more, Blitzen's not on board to help choose which toys to give each child. Santa is in need of some serious help this Christmas!
