The North Pole is about to be shut down by a depressed Santa Claus. A group of well-meaning angels turn to Mrs. Claus to help turn things around. If she can find one child who understands the true meaning of Christmas - the North Pole will be saved. Mrs. Claus appears before Arnold Bates and convinces him to take on the task - find the true meaning of Christmas to raise Santa's spirits and keep the North Pole going. Arnold recruits his friends to help, and through a series of misadventures, they band together and discover the true holiday spirit.
Wolfgang Amadeus Schmutzinberry is about to start his next opus when the ensemble begins to criticize the fact that he has not included a meter or bar lines. He does not know what meter is or why it is important in music. His own piece slowly takes shape as he learns about accents, dance forms, duple/triple time and reviews the concepts of tempo, pulse, and rhythm.
