Role in the special
Although Mistletoe may not have seemed like the friendliest character at first, his attitude quickly changes as the movie progress, as he learns about the values of friendship and putting others before yourself. After losing his memory, all Mistletoe wanted to do was find his way home. Even while lost alone and cold in the woods, he didn't want any friends, just a way home. So when he receives a surprise visit from a overly joyous raccoon named Leon who claimed that he had what Mistletoe needed, he is shocked to find out that he was tricked into adopting three kittens named Scat, Scram, and Shoo. But he quickly comes to like the kittens, especially when he finds out they don't have a home either. He starts to value the friendship that Spookley and the Kittens offer him, and eventually decides to help Spookley get the kittens back to the farm instead of finding his home. Only when he gets to farm does he realize that that was meant to be his home all along. Not only does Mistletoe find his home, but he also learned a valuable lesson about friendship and selflessness on the way. A message that all children can imitate, as well as instilling the value of home and family in children.
