The cartoon is done largely in pantomime, with the occasional (unintelligble) bickering of elves, many of which look like miniature versions of Elmer Fudd with elf-like ears (anticipating a similar role played by Elmer 10 years later). The twist on the usual story is that the bedridden shoemaker, suddenly feeling much better upon seeing the elves working feverishly, tries to sneak out to play golf. The elves drag Jake back to bed, tie him down a la Gulliver, and are seen dragging the golf clubs out of the house for themselves to play a round with, at iris-out.
After one of the elves fell into a bucket of water, the other two elves look like snakecharmers, and one of the two is playing the flute to tie the boot's shoelace neatly. When it aired on Cartoon Network, it was cut out.
