Great and Grumpy Holiday is a Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! episode from season two.

Characters Present


Wubbzy stops at nothing to get the perfect Christmas tree that is on Old Man Grumpus’ land.


Every year during the holidays, the people of Wuzzleburg decorate the tree in Wuzzleburg Town Square. However, the tree has been cut down by beavers, so Wubbzy and his friends look for a replacement on Mount Zubba Bubba. However, Old Man Grumpus lives there and won't let anyone take trees or even celebrate the holidays on his property. Wubbzy and his friends come up with a plan to un-grump Mr. Grumpus with a gift and tree decorations.

Mr. Grumpus chases everyone away and takes down the tree decorations before noticing the big present under the tree. When he opens it and finds the gift he's always wanted, a real working choo-choo train, he feels bad for how he treated the people of Wuzzleburg. To make things right, he redecorates the tree and takes it to town on his new train. He also gives the people presents (red long underwear) and a ride on his train. At the end, Mr. Grumpus yells "Happy Holidays!" while everyone is wearing long underwear and riding his train.

Common Elements

Walden's Exclamation

"Great gallopin' grouches!" He says this when he sees Old Man Grumpus chasing Wubbzy.

Widget's Invention:

A real, working train to give as a present to Old Man Grumpus.


Widget turns the Wubb-Mobile into the Wubb-Sled in order to climb Mount Zubba Bubba in the snow.

Post-Show Skit

Wubbzy is at the Wubb Club and wants to go outside in the snow, but every time he gets to the door, one of his friends stops him to to put on more winter clothes. By the time he makes it outside, he looks like an overstuffed bear.

The jukebox robot comes out. Wubbzy's two guesses are: "Is it bouncy-bounce time?" while he bounces on his tail; and "Is it squirrel time?" while a squirrel on his tail chatters. Then the song "Wubbzy Wiggle" is played.


  • When Wubbzy is choosing a Christmas tree, he passes the tree that Charlie Brown picked in A Charlie Brown Christmas, and says the line, "Oh, good grief!"
