Splat the Cat knows that it is important to write a letter to Santa and be good so that he can get what he wants for Christmas, but he (and especially his little sister) aren’t convinced that Splat has been good enough to get the really big present he wants. Splat decides to do everything he can to help his mom get ready for Christmas. He even washes the Christmas dishes that aren’t dirty. When he’s still not sure if he’s been good enough, he decides to wait for Santa so he can tell Santa how good he has been. For a while it looks like Santa may not have left any presents after all, but in the end Splat has the best Christmas ever.
