Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber appear as Cavis Appythart and Millward Phelps, respectively--two jingle writers based loosely on Gilbert and Sullivan. The setting is 1880s London, and they've written a musical called "The Princess and the Plumber", which they plan to open on Christmas Eve. Cavis thinks the production will "teach London how to love". But children at nearby St. Bart's Church are planning a nativity play for the same evening, and they plan to feature the Star of Christmas, a religious artifact unseen by the public for decades. The London Post Gazette writes a front-page story about the nativity play and the Star, and Cavis and Millward hatch a plan to make their musical better than the children's play. In the end, they learn about the true meaning of Christmas.

Did You Know?
originally wanted to use Rebecca St. James
' recording of 'O Come, O Come Emmanuel' for the end titles for this video, but was unable to acquire the rights (a new recording was used instead, but with a similar musical arrangement). However, because of the contact he had with St. James during the negotiations, he was able to arrange for her to do the character voicework as Hope in the sequel, An Easter Carol
(2004). See more
