Twas the Night Before Christmas is the tale of Amos the mouse whose house gets missed by Santa. He and his two friends, an elf named Calliope and a spunky little girl, Emily, go to great lengths to ensure that Santa doesn't miss him again. They set off on wild adventures that involve a heist, a crazy airplane flight, and an elf's stint as a secret agent in this playful tribute to the holiday season.
