Giftmas is just around the corner and everyone is getting ready for the holiday. Malina and Yata go shopping to find Kuzco some kind of gift he might actually like, while Pacha tells Chaca and Tipo a bedtime story about Papa Santos. However, Kuzco tells them that he does not exist, which fuels Tipo to find proof that he does. Meanwhile, Yzma’s fruitcake plan fails and she comes up with another way to get rid of Kuzco. She makes a game show about him (which he ironically comes in second place) in order for him to win a trip to a ski resort on Mount Reeve. However, the mountain does not have a resort and Kuzco and Kronk end up frozen. Then some gnomes show up and take the two of them to Papa Santos’ ice palace. Kuzco finally believes in him and finds out that he is on the naughty list, which is why his wishes never come true. He then sets out to correct all the wrong things he has done in order to get his wish to be Emperor. Meanwhile, Malina still struggles on what to get Kuzco.
