The Christmas Toy

Synopsis: When no people are around, the toys still play in the playroom. But since a toy will be frozen forever if a person catches it out of position, they have to be very careful. It's Christmas Eve, and Rugby the Tiger remembers how he was the Christmas Toy last year, and thinks he's going to be unwrapped again. And it's up to Apple the Doll, whom Rugby supplanted as favorite toy, to tell him what's in store. But Rugby won't believe her, and tries to get into the Christmas package and lets Meteora, Queen of the Asteroids loose. Unfortunately, she doesn't know she's a toy, and thinks she's landed among aliens. And it's up to Apple, Mew (the Cat's toy mouse), and the other toys to get Rugby out of the box and Meteora back in it before they're found and frozen.

Am I the Christmas toy?

The Christmas toy.


# Something special happens #

# When you leave our room. #

# You may think it's magic, #

# We don't. #

# Sometimes when you leave us #

# We still feel like playing. #

# You'll be feeling tired, #

# But we won't. #

# If we can't play

with girls and boys, #

# Then it only make sense

for toys to play with toys. #

# Toys love to play, #

# Toys love to play. #

# Toys love adventure! #

# Toys can be very brave. #

# Like me! #

# Toys can be so conceited,

like he is. #

# Toys can be pretty funny, #

# Toys can wear pretty clothes. #

Don't I look excellent?

# Toys can be pretty pretty,

like she is. #

# Toys love to play, #

# Toys love to play. #

People coming!

People coming!

Everyone back into place!


Everyone back into place!


Rugby, hurry up!

If you get caught

out of position,

you'll be frozen forever!

But I'm a tiger.

I'm too fast to get caught.


Come on, Jesse!

Let's play!

Watch this.

I can't wait to see

what Santa brings us.

Can you?

I just know

it's gonna be great.

I guess so, but how can any toy

be greater than Rugby?

He's the most special-est toy

in the whole world.

No, he's not.

Jesse, Jamie, time for bed!

But we want to play!

Well, stay up if you want to,

but you know Santa won't come

until you're both fast asleep!

Let's go.

Come on, Weegee.


# Toys are for cuddling, #

# Toys are for riding on. #

# Toys have electronic circuits

to find their own way with. #

# Toys are for loving, #

# Toys are for having fun. #

# Toys are for toys

and people to play with. #

# Toys love to play, #

# Toys love to play, #

# Toys love to play. #

Hey, everybody! Everybody!

Listen up!

I've got something important

to tell ya!

This is big! Really big!

Oh, I hope

it's nothing stressful.

My seams aren't up to it.

Oh, believe me, Balthazar,

it's not.

In fact, it's something

so stupendous,

so extra-special fabulous...

Well, let me just set the stage.

You see, I was downstairs,

as you know...

in the living room,

to be precise.

And to my amazement...

Output your input.

You can be so rude sometimes,


Oh, Belmont! Belmont!

Just tell us what you have

to tell us!

Well, in fact, I can't think

of anything more wonderful,

more fantastic, more...

Cut the rap, sap!

All right.

It's Christmas Eve!

Oh, boy! Oh, boy!

I forgot all about it.

Aw, get off the track, Jack.

Oh, tell me what's going on.

I have to know

if I'm dressed right.

All our circuits are busy.

You'll have to dial

your call again.

Oh, I hate it in there.

Now, will somebody please

tell me what's going on?

It's Christmas Eve!


Christmas Eve, huh?

Yeah, that's really great.

We toys really love

Christmas Eve.

Yep, we sure do.

We to... ooh!

What do you mean "we"?

Well, I'm a toy, too, you know.

But you're a cat toy.

So, you're a cat.

But I'm no ordinary cat!

I'm a tiger.

And besides,

you smell funny, too.

I don't...

I don't smell funny!

I smell... I smell like...

like catnip.

Cat toys are supposed

to smell like catnip!

Well, people toys

don't smell at all!

And they don't m-m-m-make me...



Eww! It's Mew!

Yeah! It's catnip!

Just catnip!

Ah, brother.

I'm as good as any people toy.

Real cats like it!

Gather 'round, everyone!

Everybody, gather 'round.

I wanted to... oh-oh-oh-oh!

I want to talk to you all

about Christmas.

I'll be ready in a minute!

Let's see.

Too casual.

Too formal.

Too sporty.

Oh, this, definitely!

Or maybe not.


I didn't know it was going

to happen again.

# I'll always remember #

# How everyone cheered #

# That wonderful moment. #

# Yours truly appeared #

# Open the ribbon, #

# And on with the show. #

# Could anyone ever

love anyone so? #

# No Christmas tree

ever felt so tall. #

# I was the greatest

Christmas toy #

# of all. #


Wake up.

Balthazar's gonna tell us

about Christmas.


I said we're going to learn

about Christmas.

Or don't you think you need to?

What's to learn?

I know everything about it.

You do? Like what?

Well, like,

I'm the most important part,

because I'm the Christmas toy.

Ahh, yes, you do know

all about Christmas.

I can see that now.

You know, it's all about you.

That's right!

And I want you to know

that I don't blame you

for being jealous.

It would be very hard

not to be.

- Rugby?

- Hmm?

You are unbelievable.

I know!

Settle down, everyone!

Settle down!

Now, Christmas is a very

important event in the playroom,

and I want to make sure you all

know what it mea-a-a-a-a-ans!

I can't wait till she opens

the box and finds me inside.

That's the best part.

Balthazar, are you all right?

No, of course I'm not all right!

Well, should we help you up?

Unless you want to wait

for me all night.

It means Rugby the tiger cub

is going to be a star.

He shouldn't do that.

He's gonna get caught!

Now, what Christmas means

here in the playroom

is that we will have new members

entering our little community.

The children will be receiving

new toys,

toys that will be confused

about the ways of the world.

What we must do is open

our hearts and welcome them

just as we did last year

and every year before that.

- Oh, don't remind me.

- Yeah.

Well, we all know that Apple
