"This is a catastrophe! A monstrosity! A travesty! A mockery! Two mockeries and a double-kerfuffle. In other words, a really big mess!"

The evil Dr. H.Q. Crankspea has really done it this time. The dastardly villain has stolen the antlers from Santa's reindeer. Everybody knows that reindeer need their antlers to fly straight. Christmas is doomed!

Joe Mufferaw (our hero) needs help from the most unlikely of sources - the audience! Can the stolen antlers be recovered? Can Christmas be saved? Or will Joe be too late?

Excellent for grade school and family audiences.
