A street urchin is looking at a toy store window and sees a toy soldier dancing whose limbs are so loose, the owner throws him in the trash. The boy rescues that wooden soldier and takes him home to try to give the toy a nice Christmas. He tells him how much fun they're going to have when they get home. Together, they await Santa's arrival on a pathetic Christmas Eve. After the boy falls asleep, the wooden uniformed man turns on the radio as it plays music. The toy soldier repays the kindness, bringing Santa Claus to the boy's shack with a ton of toys and food. The toys put on a show. Among them are a goat that sounds like Bing Crosby, an Ed Wynn-like fire chief, and a man inspired by long-forgotten comedian Joe Penner with a duck who asks Penner's catchphrase, "Wanna buy a duck?" The boy, the wooden soldier, and a cat who also lives in the house are having a swell time frolicking among the new presents as the cartoon ends. This poignant story includes carols and other songs, along with some odd vocalizations and quotes from toys.
