"A perfect satire..."
Christmas starts a bit early this year for Agent Muddled. He's convinced that the spirit of St. Nicholas has taken over the body of a bank manager and is preparing for December 5th, the traditional date of Santa's visit in many European countries. Meanwhile, the FBI's assigned their best agent to keep an eye on Muddled. Posing as his stenographer, Agent Melissa Sullen soon finds herself drawn into a world of intrigue, suspense, and jolly old elves.
Based on reports of local children being tied up in sacks - St. Nick's traditional punishment for the naughty - Muddled ignores Assistant Director B.F. Skinner's warnings and sets out, hot on the trail of the bank manager. But the trail quickly splits in two as he and Sullen encounter a strange little man at an amusement park. The subsequent chase and rooftop climax will leave you wondering if you shouldn't believe as well...
"...an amusing spoof"
It's July, and producer Chris Kringle stuns the TV industry by announcing that his planned science-fiction network is going "All-Xmas All The Time" - a sure sign of Santa possession. When a kidnap attempt is made Kringle goes into hiding, but before Muddled can get to him a second attempt succeeds...or is it the first attempt of a second set of kidnappers? Either way, Muddled's convinced that the ultra-secret organization concealing the truth about Santa is at work again!
To access his ultra-secret lead-generating computer program on the off-season, Muddled needs Agent Sullen's help. She's reluctant - still in therapy to deal with her previous close encounter of the Muddled kind - but she soon realizes that someone really is after Santa, not to mention Muddled. After a visit from the Cavity Man, Sullen begins to see that the key to everything rests with Muddled's deceased father. What exactly did he do at the FBI and what secrets are held by his old 8-track tapes, the ones everybody's after?
