Zoomer is the youngest of three dogs in his family. One day, Zoomer and his brothers are on the lookout for Santa in the sky, until a spaceship lands in their backyard and they meet a robot family! While the robot dad tries to fix the spaceship, Zoomer and his brothers enjoy a picnic, space games, and swimming in a force-field pool with the robot family. Robot dad determines that a key piece of the ship is missing and Zoomer sacrifices his tricycle in order to help the robots fix their vehicle. The dogs and robots part ways, but the next morning Zoomer wakes up to find a fancy new bicycle from Santa, who was impressed with Zoomer’s selfless act toward the robots.
