Plot Summary

Olive the dog mishears a news broadcast on the radio about having to postpone when one of his reindeers is injured (she mistakes the announcement's call for help from “all of the reindeers” for “Olive the ”) and sets out to save the day. She's helped by Martini the penguin but hindered by a deranged postman, driven insane by having to deliver so many cards and presents every year…
