Synopsis: Nine year old Ralphie Parker is on a quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Goldblatt's Department Store; the constant response? "You'll shoot your eye out."  All elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental furnace, Scut Farkas; the school bully, the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost, Ralphie's dad winning the lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking as well as all of Ralphie's fantastic scenarios.
