This fun-filled Christmas Classic for the whole family follows Ralphie on his timeless Christmas escapades. This year, there's a gift that Ralphie wants more than anything in the world - a Red Ryder 200-Shot Carbine Action Range Model Air Rifle - but his parents don't seem to think it's such a good idea. His mother warns him, "You'll shoot your eye out," and his father is too busy tinkering with the family's furnace and evading the dogs from next door to pay much attention. Ralphie even visits the local department store, nervously hoping that Santa will endorse his wish. Ralphie and his friends make every effort to be on their very best behavior in order to impress the adults who wield power over their Christmas destinies, but staying out of trouble isn't always as easy as it should be.
