Donald forgets to mail the nephews' letter to Santa Claus and discovers on Christmas Eve that they want a steamshovel. Donald gets the money for the steamshovel from Uncle Scrooge but Scrooge, upset because Santa and not he will get the credit for the gift, buys a steamshovel of his own to give to the nephews. He and Donald meet and fight in their steamshovels, wrecking them. Then they disguise Donald as Santa so that he can tell the nephews he's out of steamshovels.
