Plot

Countertop Scene

The episode begins with Larry on a stepstool decorating a christmas tree. He greets the viewers and then falls off the tree. Bob comes in holding a box of lights and asks Larry if he did all the decorating on the countertop and he says yes. Bob then notices the camera is on and Larry tells him that they are doing a christmas show. Bob suggests that they do "A Christmas Carol" but Larry tells him that they aren't doing that. Mr. Lunt then comes in with a box of Christmas ornaments and Larry falls again. And just like Bob, he notices the camera is on and Larry tells him that they are doing a Christmas Show. Mr. Lunt suggests doing "The Nutcracker" but Larry yet again says they aren't doing that. Archibald then shows up with the Star for the tree and yet again Larry falls down. Archibald then notices the Camera is on and says that he didn't know that they were doing a show. Bob tells him that they are. Archibald suggests they do "The Gift of the Magi" but like what happened with Bob and Mr. Lunt, Larry tells him they aren't doing that. Bob asks what story are they doing then. Larry says that they are doing a story about an where he is an elf and where Mr. Lunt works for Bob, whose characters they play are is hired to decorate a mall owned by the king of the Mall. Larry then hopes the views enjoy their Christmas present which is the Story of Merry Larry...
