A tribute to the original, traditional, one-hundred-percent, red-blooded, two-fisted, all-American Christmas.


The comic mishaps and adventures of a young boy named Ralph, trying to convince his parents, teachers, and Santa that a Red Ryder B.B. gun really is the perfect Christmas gift for the 1940s.
