"Holiday Time" is the Christmas episode of the Disney/Pixar animated series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. The holiday season has arrived on Capital Planet, and Mira and XR are walking around town. Mira loves how nice everyone is to each other this time of year, but XR says that he simply does not understand this holiday. The two then catch up with Buzz, who is working as a street corner Santa. Just then, a large bearded man comes up to them, saying that he is Santa Claus and he needs Buzz's help. He says that something of his has been stolen, but he will not divulge what it is, and Buzz does not believe that this man is in fact Santa Claus. Later, however, Buzz receives a call from Commander Nebula, saying there's urgent business at hand. Team Lightyear reports to Star Command, where Commander Nebula informs them that Evil Emperor Zurg is about to make a "whole lotta moves" - sabotaging Star Command's fleet, releasing all the prisoners in PC-7, and stealing Buzz's morning newspaper. Despite Star Command's best efforts, Zurg manages to pull off all of these deeds, seemingly in the blink of an eye. (more...)
