"The Christmas Tree" is a Christmas special that takes place in an orphanage run by the evil Mrs. Mavilda. She steals the orphanage's funds and tricks the mayor into thinking she's a good manager. The kids are so miserable they latch onto a pine tree as a mother figure. But their lives change with the arrival of a caring assistant.
