One Christmas season, the human and mouse citizens of a small town get their letters to Santa unceremoniously returned, with a message that the town has been removed from Santa's delivery itinerary because of a letter from someone in that town that insulted him by dismissing his existence. While Father Mouse confronts his cynical son Albert, the letter's writer, their human companions, a clockmaker and his family, work to regain Mr. Claus' favor.

Did You Know?
Junctionville, New York is a fictional town meant to honor author Clement Moore
, who was born in New York. It is apparently a seaside town, as one little boy, Davy Thomas, is shown sitting on a seaside cliff dropping a drawing of Santa into the ocean. Its maritime nature may have been based on Newport, Rhode Island, where Clement Moore died. See more
As Father Mouse and Albert enter the Trundles' house to see the model of the new clock tower, we see a clock that reads 10 o'clock in the long shot. After Father Mouse and Albert finish bouncing down in the next shot, the clock reads 11:10. See more
Which brings us to where we were: three minutes...
[as Father Mouse holds up his alarm clock, we hear an ominous chime, which is a signal that it's almost Christmas
Three seconds to Christmas!
[we now hear carolers singing "Silent Night"
No chimes. No song. No Santa.
