While Leonard hopes to get a Mach III Game Command for Christmas so he can play with his friends, Spot exclaims his annoyance towards always receiving dog toys for Christmas. He finds a sign for a missing dog named Moby and decides to find him, hoping to collect a $500 reward to buy stuff for himself. But once finding out that the missing dog is now with his wife Charlotte and newborn puppies, he learns that Christmas isn't about getting presents; it's about family.

Trivia

  • This episode aired in late April due to Toon Disney airing the remaining 18 burn-off episodes straight in a row since ABC was developing ABC Kids at the time. The episode "The Turkey that Came to Dinner" fell under the same trap as it aired in late March. Had this not have happened, it most likely would have aired in December.
  • The title of this episode is a pun on "The Night Before Christmas".
  • Moral: The holidays are about family. 
  • Gabrielle Carteris of Beverly Hills, 90210 fame guest stars as Charlotte.
