One windy night, Mr. Flinch tells his Junkyard friends about the days after Christmas when he was just a young possum, and the townspeople would ring bells and gather in the park to sing songs, drink cider and eat fruit cake. His enticing story sparks the curiosity of both Spiro, the fun loving skunk, and Ben Thompson, the clever cat. "Do you think it's still happening?" asks Ben. The unstoppable pair venture out into the weather to see if they can find the reveling townsfolk and sneak some cake. The cold wind and rain nearly dampen their spirits, until they come across an opportunity to discover the true meaning of the Twelfth Night of Christmas.
