Merry Christmas, Splat (Splat the Cat)
It's the night before Christmas, and Splat wonders if he's been a good enough cat this year to deserve a really big present. Just to make sure, he offers some last-minute help to his mom and, in typical Splat fashion, he messes up completely! That night Splat stays awake hoping to see Santa Claus.

Splat began to do chores for mom without being asked. Unfortunately, he picked chores that had already been done, and he made bigger messes.
