Episode Recap

On Whiskers, On Lola, On Cheryl and Meryl: Brandy is upset due to the fact that Christmas is coming and she won't be able to celebrate with her family and is surprised the animals don't know what Christmas is or who Santa Claus is. She describes the Harrington Christmas to them. "The silver studded Christmas tree, the diamond studded mistletoe and snow which they import from another part of the world". Brandy than remembers that Santa Claus has access to a flying sled and figures that he would have no problem to taking her back home. She introduces Christmas to the Amazon by having the animal's giving presents to one another and to build a Christmas tree topped off with a chimney to lure Santa to her whereabouts. As the episode progresses we find out that Mr. Whiskers is very afraid of Santa since he watches you all year long which to him is a invasion of privacy and since he has the big fat gut he must want to eat him. Brandy explains numerous times that Santa is not dangerous and offers to sleep in the same bed as Whiskers so Whiskers will feel safe and Santa will be aloud to take her home. When Santa arrives Mr. Whiskers attacks Santa by throwing fruits and other household items at him which causes Santa to retreat back to his sleigh. Brandy follows him and asks for a ride but Santa refuses because she was on the naughty list due to the fact she is always mean to Whiskers. Santa hands her a lump of coal and flies off. Brandy upset to the fact that Santa rejected her throws the coal and knocks Rudolph for a loop and he crashes. Brandy becomes really upset that she ruined her chances of ever getting home and that she ruined the Christmas dreams of countless children. With Santa injured he reveals that the sleigh actually runs on ancient fairy magic since he can not afford gas. Brandy becomes happy since another person can fly the sleigh and she offers to deliver the presents and still be dropped off in Palm Beach Florida in the process. Brandy with Mr. Whiskers fly around the world doing Santa's job and soon finds her house which has all the stuff she said. We see for the first time what her living conditions are like and all the animals are preparing to leave Brandy. She has to think about it and realizes she must continue on the job. They fly around the world and deliver the rest of the gifts. When they return to the Amazon, Santa is happy that things turned out ok and he packs up and hops on his sleigh. Brandy realizes that she was wrong and Christmas is not about the materialistic goods. Santa flies off leaving Brandy high and dry and the animals all remind her next year Santa would have no problem as long as she is good all year. Brandy regains her gloomy state when the animals all start laughing as if Brandy was trapped due to it being impossible for her to be good all year.
