Merry Christmas Pets is Christmas time, and Santa Clause flies across the evening sky in his reindeer-drawn sleigh. Down on the snowy terrain, Pooch rides on a dachshund-pulled sled, and sings a jazzy version of the song Jingle Bells On the way, a hungry husky spots and starts to pursue the dog. While still struggling to get in the house, the husky notices the sleigh of Santa Claus landing nearby. The husky captures and ties up Santa. The husky then dons Santa’s clothes and beard before going down into the chimney. Merry Christmas boasted a variety of musical arrangements, sounds and genres. Carey’s goal was to provide an album that would have a “Christmas feel”, providing a mixture of soulful tracks, as well as fun and joyous holiday treats.
