The people of Mars are worried that their children are watching too much Earth television from station KID-TV including an interview with Santa Claus in his workshop at the North Pole.

Consulting 800-year old Martian sage Chochem (Yiddish for "genius"), they are advised that the children of Mars are growing distracted due to the society's overly rigid structure. From infancy their education is fed into their brains through machines and they are not allowed individuality or freedom of thought.

Chochem notes that he had seen this coming for centuries, and says the only way to help the children is to allow them their freedom and be allowed to have fun. To do this, they need a Santa Claus figure, like on Earth. The Martian leaders decide to abduct Santa Claus from Earth and bring him to Mars. As the Martians can't distinguish between all the fakes Santas, they kidnapped two children to find the real one.
