For Stanley, Christmas has lost some of its magic. Stanley and his sister, SuSu, set out to the North Pole to find out for themselves about Christmas. Trapped in a blizzard, they wind up in a dilapidated gas station run by a mysterious old man named Nick. Nick shows Stanley and SuSu the wonders of imagination and helps to bring his rundown gas station to life as a magic toyshop.

One of the silliest villains you'll ever see, Mr. Gasket J. Wasket shows up and tries to spoil the day. Ultimately, Mr. Wasket is foiled, and Stanley finds his renewed Christmas spirit along with the real meaning of Christmas, keeping his imagination alive and restoring his belief in the magic of the holiday.
