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.

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
