Ever have one of those days? One late Christmas Eve, after delivering presents all around the world, Santa is finally crawling into bed when he makes a horrible discovery. Harvey Slumfenburger's present is still in his sack! His reindeer are already tucked into bed, but Santa must find a way to get that present to Harvey, a little boy who lives in a hut at the top of the Roly Poly Mountain. Wearily, he trudges out into the cold winter night. Fortunately, a veritable fleet of vehicles becomes available to assist him in his mission. When a jeep skids in the snow, a boy with a motorbike appears. When the motorbike can go no farther, a girl with skis picks up our wayward elfin hero. And once the present is finally deposited safely in Harvey Slumfenburger's stocking, Santa still has to make the return trip!
