On the way to get packages in the mail early, Fibber and Molly take stock of their gifts. First, a phone call to the operator, Mirt, reveals a young relative who had her face lifted. Fibber gets confused over casseroles, camisoles, and a gift for a relative.
Gildersleeves pops in to report on Mrs Gildersleeves. Will he be flustered with the ribbing he gets from Fibber? Stampin at the Savoy McGee tells about his old job at the post office, then Billy Mills plays some smooth dance music to travel to.
The lines are long, and the packages are heavy, but Fibber won’t be getting any privileges to cut to the head of the line. Mrs Uppington is on hand with her dog FeeFee. Teeny tells about her letter to Santa, and help with the man next door that she made mad at her. Despite the immovable line, Harlowe Wilcox manages a sponsor message.
The Old Timer appears, and tells about a lost sister. She returns to take a delivery of mail by pony express, then the Kingsmen sing, Hilda.
A man has been standing on Fibbers foot, actually Hal Peary, but the matter is settled cordially. Boomer makes an appearance in line. Let me see now… where did he put that letter he needs to mail… Ah, what’s this? Just about anything else but his letter. What’s the delay? Molly is about ready to give up, but they are next… sort of.
