Storyline

Sniffles is determined to stay up until midnight on Christmas Eve in order to see Santa Claus. As the time grows later, and his eyelids grow heavier, Sniffles desperately tries to rid his home of all sleep-inducing sights and sounds, but no matter how hard he tries, he just can't seem to stay awake.

Yawn

In this short, Sniffles the mouse is trying not to fall asleep so he won't miss the arrival of Santa Claus. Needless to say, he doesn't have much success...and neither did I. I found the images and sounds that made Sniffles droopy eyed had the same effect on me. This isn't a bad short, just don't view it late at night.
