Oh! Oh! Santa's sick with a bad cold. Will Christmas be cancelled? What will we do? "Never!" cries Santa, "Let's call Pete the Cat!" In a parody of the traditional The Night Before Christmas, Pete the Cat provides his typical underlying moral theme - that giving your all in the spirit of Christmas is a totally 'groovy' thing to do. As the reindeer pull his mini-bus through the sky we hear Pete's refrain - "At Christmas we give, so give it your all" - reminiscent of Santa's "Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!"
