Synopsis: Albert is the story of a tiny Douglas fir tree named Albert who has big dreams of becoming Empire City's most famous Christmas tree. When the search for this year's tree is announced, Albert believes he has found his calling and hits the road with his two best friends, Maisie the persistently positive plam tree, and Gene the abrasive and blisteringly honest weed, to fulfill his destiny. With a few prickly situations along the way, and Cactus Pete out to stop him, Albert learns the true meaning of Christmas.

[mellow, upbeat music]


[humming "O Christmas Tree"]


[playful music]


[leaves rustle]

[bamboo clatters softly]


[slurping sound]


[insect buzzing]


- All right.

The coast is officially clear.

- Freedom!

This girl's got

some roots to stretch!


- Get some water,

get some fertilizer.

Now's your chance, folks!

- Mmm...

[smack, smack]

- Aah!

- Whoa! Oof!

- Larry? Larry?

Has anyone seen

my pet ladybug?



- Guys, guys!

I've grown a flower.

- Whoa!

- Ooh!

- That's just glued on.

- You can't glue on a flower.

- You can glue everything.


I glued eyes to my butt.


- Everyone stay close

to your pot spots!

Don't wander too far.

- Too late, Boo! Ha ha ha!

Tag! You're it!

[yawns] Can't a bonsai

get some sleep around here?

- Can't catch me!

- Whoa! Whoa! Oof!


- Gotcha!


- Hey!

- Go back to your side!

- Can we share it?

- Whoa!

- Oh!

[comical notes]

[sadly] Oh...

- I knew it.

- Look! Winter's coming!

Herman lost another leaf.


That means it's almost Christmas!

- Shh! Don't say--

- Um, did somebody say


- Ah, yes!

Sing for us, Albert!

- Me? Sing?

Oh, I don't know

if I can...


Albert! Albert!

- Albert! Albert! Albert!

- Ha ha, come on, Albert.

- Who's ready to get

their jingle on?

[all cheering]

- Sing it, Albert!

- I'm ready! I'm ready!


- Ahhh, here we go...

- I admit that when it comes

to Christmas

I can get a little extreme

It's been a year of waiting,

so I'll start decorating

- The morning after


- Bring on the red and green

Come on, sing those carols

and chime those chimes

I'm ready,

so let's do this

Trim the trees,

let's start with me

For the Christmassy-est


So come on, everyone,

let's get our jingle on

And cover every square

inch with lights

Hang all the bling

we've got

Right there.

Ooh, you missed a spot.

- And turn up

the "Silent Nights"!

- That's not too much, right?

Ha ha ha ha!

Ring those bells

and light those lights

I'm ready,

so let's do this

If it's up to me,

this one will be

The Christmassy-est


- Christmassy-est



[music winds down, stops]

Nailed it.

- Eeew, Lola's got a weed!

- Ahhh!

- She's got a weed.

Maybe I've got a flower.

Ever think of that?




- Ooh!

- Eew!

- Ugh! Try cleaning your butt

yard once in a while, Gramps.

- Off my lawn!

- Owww!

- Oh! Get outta here, jerkweed!

- The name is Geeeen--


- Be nice.

It's Christmastime!

Goodwill towards all,


- So warm and moist.


- Ooh-whee!

Uh, 'scuse me, guys,

I don't wanna disturb

you or anything,

but there's fresh Christmas

trees on the lot!

- Oh!

- Ah!

- Get outta my way!

- I wanna take a gander!

- Calm down. Come on.

Everybody'll get to see 'em.

- Check out that bark!

- Oh ho ho ho ho!

- Check out those stems!

- It's me and the spirit!

- Hubba-hubba!

- They're big!

- That's some serious plants!

[plants murmuring]

- Hey. Why are you

so blue Christmas?


Those trees outside--

someone's gonna

take them home,

make 'em all twinkly

and shiny.

And right on top will go

a big, bright star.


Why not me?

- Uh, guys, I don't wanna

alarm you or anything,

but Earth Mama's comin' back!


Get back to your pot spots--


[grunts] Ohh!

[light, suspenseful music]

- How did you get down here

and all gussied up?

[gasps] Is that your

Christmas tree, Grandma?

- This pipsqueak?

Ha ha ha!
