Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber appear as Cavis Appythart and Millward Phelps, respectively--two jingle writers based loosely on Gilbert and Sullivan. The setting is 1880s London, and they've written a musical called "The Princess and the Plumber", which they plan to open on Christmas Eve. Cavis thinks the production will "teach London how to love". But children at nearby St. Bart's Church are planning a nativity play for the same evening, and they plan to feature the Star of Christmas, a religious artifact unseen by the public for decades. The London Post Gazette writes a front-page story about the nativity play and the Star, and Cavis and Millward hatch a plan to make their musical better than the children's play. In the end, they learn about the true meaning of Christmas.

Christmas Night with the Stars was a television show broadcast each Christmas night by the BBC from 1958 to 1972 and also revived in 1994. The show was hosted each year by a leading star of BBC TV and featured specially made short seasonal editions of the previous year's most popular BBC sitcoms and light entertainment programs. The show was voted 24th in the Channel 4 100 Greatest Christmas Moments. Most of the variety segments no longer exist. ITV countered with its own annual Christmas variety show from 1969 to 1973, while the BBC itself resurrected the format in 1982 with a special titled The Funny Side of Christmas. In December 2004 the BBC did a one-off special hosted by Michael Parkinson.
