Detailed Plot:
After singing (ONCE UPON A TIME), the narrator (played by the actor who will be the Gingerbread Man) introduces us to Corrie, Tyler, and their Mom. Corrie and Tyler are two typical kids who play and argue just like any other siblings. They are getting ready for their annual Christmas party (WE’RE HAVING A CHRISTMAS PARTY). As usual, Mom is baking her traditional Gingerbread cookies– but this year, she decided to make one REALLY BIG cookie (THE SECRET INGREDIENT). Mom suggests that the kids go outside and play while the cookies are cooling. Corrie and Tyler proceed to play some games with the kids in the audience. Mom calls the kids inside when the cookies are ready. When they get inside, they meet the Gingerbread Man (I’M THE GINGERBREAD MAN). Corrie and Tyler are so taken by their new cookie friend that they take him outside to play and meet the kids in the audience. But soon Mom calls them inside because it is getting near the time for the party (MOM IS CALLING). Unfortunately, the Gingerbread Man has been having so much fun, he refuses to go inside (YOU CAN’T CATCH ME). Much to the kids’ dismay, the cookie runs away, leaving them to explain things to their Mom. We soon see the Gingerbread Man running away from someone or something. He explains that he’s been chased and almost eaten many times since he was gone and he wishes he had just gone inside with the kids. He asks the kids in the audience to help him find his way back to the kids’ home. Finally, Mom and kids are reunited with their cookie friend– just in time for the party (WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS).
