THREE BRAND NEW STORIES! Santa sends his favorite elf and fairy on a mission to Riverdale to stir up as much Christmas spirit as possible in “Christmas Spirit Spat.” It’s girls vs. guys in the quest to show off the most Christmas spirit.

Then, it’s a pet show showdown when the nefarious Kennel Kween tries to steal Riverdale’s top pets! Can Captain Flag save the day, or will the Kween win “Best in Show”? The good captain’s own pet may have something to squawk about this!

And finally, in “Safe Space,” Veronica has locked a precious valuable inside an uncrackable safe – this looks like a job for Fireball! The only problem is, he’s not around and they’ll have to call for backup. Enter . . . Inferno the Fire Breather!
