During Christmastime, a pair of pilots flying a wild Tasmanian Devil over the North Pole to Australia lose the beast, who ends up inadvertently donning Santa Claus' garb and saddling in St. Nick's sleigh. Meanwhile, Bugs is reading to his nephew Clyde Twas the Night Before Christmas when "Santa" shows up. Bugs sends Clyde off to bed and has some fun with the Tasmanian Devil Santa Claus.Written by

Originally part of the Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales TV special, this cartoon starts with the Tasmanian Devil breaking free from his crate on a plane that's supposed to be taking him to Australia. He parachutes from the plane (which is kind of smart for Taz isn't it) and lands in the North Pole where he winds up dressed as Santa and taking off in the sleigh pulled by reindeer. As Bugs Bunny is reading 'Twas the Night Before Christmas to his nephew, Santa Taz arrives at their house. Taz does his usual shtick, eating everything in sight. Bugs takes this all in stride before the whole thing ends somewhat abruptly.
It's not very good, even if we don't compare it to any of the great theatrical Looney Tunes shorts. The animation is crude and the gags recycled. But it was made-for-TV so maybe we shouldn't expect too much. Speedy Gonzales appears in a throwaway joke. I didn't laugh once but perhaps little tykes will like it more.
