It's Christmas day and Dennis is disappointed that Santa didn't bring him the horse he asked for. Mr. Wilson tries to get a tree from Mr. McGuire (Ernest Truex) at a discount because it's Christmas day. Mr. McGuire makes him pay full price and tells George that he's retiring. Dennis and Tommy bring presents to the Wilson's. Margaret tells Dennis she's seen a horse and will tell him where if he looks at her doll. She tells Dennis that Johnny Fleming, another boy in the neighborhood, has gotten a pony. Dennis heads there to claim it, certain Santa must have delivered it to the wrong house. Mr. Flemming (Henry Beckman) tries to show Johnny how tame the pony is, but the boy is afraid of it. Johnny tells Dennis he'll trade the pony for a typewriter. Dennis trades his new record player for Margaret's typewriter. Mr. Wade (Stuart Nisbet) comes by and tells Henry and Alice what Dennis did and that he's trying to get a pony. Henry calls Mr. Flemming and tells him what Dennis is trying to do. Dennis returns the gifts he traded. Dennis asks Mr. McGuire if he ever thought about selling his horse, Mercury. Mr. McGuire comes up with a scheme to let Dennis think Mercury's his horse, but it will stay on the McGuire farm. The Mitchell's, the Wilson's and Mr. McGuire go for a hayride. They sing Silent Night and Dennis finishes the song himself.


The episode was made available on the Dennis the Menace: Season Two DVD set, released by Shout! Factory (under license from Sony Pictures) on July 26, 2011.
