Summary
For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas 'a fraudulent myth!' The skeptical rodent Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses 'and let up a little on the wonder why.' How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa's jolly return to Junctionville
