A hateful neighbor who had previously rained on some of the family's cherished Halloween beliefs has now told Pugsley and Wednesday that there is no Santa Claus. The family arranges for Uncle Fester to drop through the chimney, but he gets stuck, leading to a succession of less and less convincing Saint Nicks, courtesy of the family members.
Unsurprisingly, the sometimes way-off attempts to play Santa do not fool the kids at all, and when Uncle Fester (who had gotten soot blown on him from below) finally falls through, the kids are grateful but wish the real Santa could have come. To their shock, a very traditional (non-Addams) tree and gifts suddenly appear, replacing their idea of decorations, with the real Santa having snuck in and done this while their backs were turned. The family then joins and sings "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" as the episode ends.
MGM Home Entertainment made the episode available on The Addams Family: Volume 3 DVD set, released on September 11, 2007.
