Tom and Jerry: Santa's Little Helpers is a 2014 direct-to-video Christmas special starring Tom and Jerry, which also serves as a half-hour Christmas episode of The Tom and Jerry Show, produced by Warner Bros. Animation. At a post office in the desert, Tom looks at a postcard that has just been dropped off and realizes it's almost Christmas Eve. He starts writing a letter to Santa Claus, asking that Santa find him a good home (having gotten banned from the city he used to live in due to causing multiple accidents). After Tom tries to seal his letter, though, his envelope won't stay sealed, so he tries use the post office's super-sealer machine, but ends up going through the machine himself. Noticing it's almost 3:00, Tom, now stuck in a box shape with his letter, jumps into the mail pickup box, resulting in the mailman unknowingly bringing him to the airport. Tom is then dropped off at the North Pole, where he then smells some cookies that Mrs. Claus has just baked. We then see that Jerry and his nephew, Tuffy, are living in a mouse hole somewhere in Santa's workshop. Tom sneaks in to eat some of the baked goods himself, but he and Jerry get into one of their usual scuffles. Mrs. Claus then comes in and, correctly guessing that Tom came in from the cold, offers to take him in. (more...)
