/ Early Christmas
September 30th, 1991
A Summertime Christmas, also known as Early Christmas, is an episode of The Sooty Show from 1991.
It's the middle of a scorching summer heatwave, but Soo is too busy wrapping up Christmas presents to notice. In an effort to make their own presents, Sweep ends up painting Soo's boxes of presents different colours. Unaware of what Sweep has done, Matthew opens all of Soo's boxes to reveal the Christmas presents inside. When he find out the truth, Matthew is furious and Sweep goes into hiding. Realising that he has scared Sweep, Matthew feels bad and dresses up as Father Christmas to lure Sweep out of hiding.
Everything is soon forgiven and the gang enjoy a Christmas themed tea, complete with crackers and Christmas pudding. Matthew then sings a song which proves that it is the thought that counts when choosing Christmas gifts.
