Plot[edit]

Act I[edit]

The Migrator is sailing into the ocean. Rockhopper is with Yarr and saying that the Merry Walrus Party was good. He realizes that there is a viewer and begins to talk to him, breaking the "fourth wall". He notices that the viewer didn't listen his story but he has a copy from the internet. He picks up his smartphone and the camera focuses in the video.

The story starts showing penguins on the Merry Walrus Eve, decorating the island for Merry Walrus. A choir is singing A Very Merry Walrus while, in the middle of the ocean, Herbert is observing the preparations in his submarine with a periscope. He reveals for his accomplice Klutzy that he'll make a Merry Walrus surprise that penguins won't soon forget. He names his plan Operation: Silent Night.

Back to the island, Roofhowse is finishing to build his igloo, hammering a ship's wheel on the door.
