However, the man claiming to be Santa catches up to him and once more Buzz doesn't believe while his crew regard him as crazy. After they leave, Santa complains of the lack of belief while Buzz brings up when he stopped believing. Santa then elaborates on this by mentioning a present Buzz wanted at that age. He then proves his identity by listing an incident in Buzz's childhood involving a time where Buzz hurt his pet cat Fluffy with a laser. Buzz is shocked to hear this, since nobody else knew of the incident. Santa reveals that he did and Buzz learns that the event is what caused him to not get his present at the age that he lost his belief. Now fully convinced, Buzz offers to help Santa but he has to worry about Zurg, who strips Capital Planet of their Christmas decorations. Santa says Zurg is trying to destroy The Holiday. Upon seeing this event, Buzz tells Santa that they must save the day.

Santa takes Buzz to his workshop of North Polaris while revealing that Zurg broke in and stole his Chrono-Disrupter. He states how technologically advanced he became to do his job, while revealing that the device stops time and that's how he delivered presents in one night and how Zurg is able to get past the rangers. He soon shows his elves (who are members of the Elf-GMs) have been hard at work on a new disrupter but it won't be ready for a week. Buzz asks how he used to deliver and is shown the hyper speed accelerator, which Santa denies to use but Buzz wants to for his own purposes.

Buzz contacts his team and tells them to meet on Tradeworld. Buzz formally introduces Santa to his team, as they are at a loss (except a gleeful Booster) at discovering he's real. They then help him by making the planet more Christmas-themed as bait to draw Zurg in. Buzz tells his team that Santa has armed him with a hyper speed accelerator to battle Zurg even if he freezes time. Santa tells him that he must activate it when Zurg stops time.

Zurg arrives and prepares to do his crime spree, as Team Lightyear surround him. Zurg stops time and taunts the seemingly frozen Buzz by asking the latter how he will defeat him, with Buzz revealing his façade and his intentions with the accelerator. The two engage in a fearsome battle, before Zurg loses the time device and is surrounded by the team. However, he is able to escape and Buzz states he lost but the evil emperor reveals that he actually won. Zurg explains that Santa is now unable to deliver without stopping time or flying fast, as he mentions the sadness that will come up. Team Lightyear and Santa are devastated, with XR having to admit that Zurg actually won while the latter rubs it in their face and leaves relishing in his supposed victory.

Santa brings Team Lightyear to his shop and fears his record of flawless delivering to be in danger. However, they have him show his old method and he reveals his old sleigh, which is powered by belief. After the sleigh is fully charged, Santa goes out on his delivery with Team Lightyear and they successfully save the holiday.
