Johnny forgets to send a letter to Santa Claus and must reach the North Pole before Christmas. When the post office tells him there is no way to get the letters to the North Pole, Johnny journeys to the North Pole himself. Unsure of where Santa lives, he agrees to take little Suzy along with him. They at first become stowaways on a plane, but after getting dropped out along with circus animals, Suzy contacts a trucker to give them a ride to the airport. There they get a lift going towards the North Pole, along the way picking up the infamous Donny Osmond.
