Start

Duggee and the Squirrels are plying music and dancing. Happy is playing the symbols and Tag is playing the drums.

Set-Up

The doorbell rings. It’s Duggee’s friend Clarence. The Squirrels introduce themselves and tell him that they are getting ready for Christmas. Clarence used to get excited for Christmas too but he finds it all a bit much nowadays. The Squirrels show him some Christmas hospitality, offering him Christmas pies and Duggee’s fruit cup. He complains that Christmas pies get a bit samey after the first 3 million but he accepts the drink.

Clarence used to think that Christmas was the best time of year too. He would spend all year getting ready for it, building toys but people started wanting more and somewhere along the way it lost its magic and Clarence lost his Christmas cheer. The Squirrels want to help and luckily Duggee has his Christmas Badge.
