The Griffins gear up for Christmas as they witness Mayor Wild West unveiling a nativity scene he carved himself, but Brian is feeling cynical about the holiday, mainly because of its emphasis on commercialism. After a few too many drinks at the Drunken Clam, he accidentally rams his car into the nativity scene and hides the evidence by parking it among the other clunkers in the Spirit Airlines parking lot. West begins to question everyone in Quahog about the disappearance of his art, briefly hiring Brian to try and sniff out evidence, but eventually decides to cancel Christmas until the culprit is found, much to the family’s disappointment. While picking up his aunt at the airport and getting tipped off by Stewie who wanted a Happy Asking Panda toy, West discovers an imprint of baby Jesus’ head in the hood of Brian’s car and has him arrested. From his cell at the Quahog Police Department, Brian sees how happy everyone is on Christmas, including Stewie who got his Happy Asking Panda, and discovers that the holiday is not just about commercialism, but also family. West has Brian released from his cell, explaining that it was all a ruse to help him learn the true meaning of Christmas. As Stewie uses the Happy Asking Panda’s features, its factory in China is revealed to be using its Happy Asking Panda toy to seize American assets by collecting banking information. The head of the factory learns from one of his workers that they found $17.00 in the Griffin family account, which is not enough to cover the $23.00 used to make it, leading to the factory’s collapse.
