Grumpy saves an elf named Gingersnaps from drowning, who in return vows to act as Grumpy’s servant for the rest of his life.
- Cheri Oteri as Gingersnaps.
Jolly Day is approaching, and the 7D is feeling the holiday spirit. But their activities annoy Grumpy. To escape from it all, he went to an icy lake to fish with the goat Gizelle. Suddenly, he hear cries for help from a person who's close to being drowned. Grumpy pulls him to safety and the person thanks him for saving his life. He then introduces himself as Gingersnaps the Pfeffernüsse elf, and because of Grumpy's unselfish act, Gingersnaps will be his servant per Pfeffernüsse tradition.
Grumpy brought along Gingersnaps to the cottage, where The 7D welcome him. The next morning, Gingersnaps serves Grumpy a nice breakfast and then he thought it's great to have him around. However, as time goes on, Grumpy is increasingly getting annoyed with the elf's frantic behavior and also because he's doing all the work Grumpy usually enjoys. After Gingersnaps nearly slips out the fact that elves will leave if they save the life of the person one serves, Doc hatches a plan based on his knowledge on elf traditions he learned while attending school years back.
While Grumpy goes out fishing with Gingersnaps, the rest of The 7D put on with much difficulty a bear suit to stage an attack on Grumpy. But a real, live bear comes up on Grumpy and Gingersnaps at the lake. After the elf saves Grumpy from the bear, The 7D (still halfway inside the suit) appears, making Grumpy realize that he had encountered a real bear. Grumpy thanks Gingersnaps and tells him to leave, but since Gingersnaps is a Pfeffernüsse elf, the arrangement is very tough to break because of his kind's traditions (Doc admits he was absent from school at the time). Back the cottage, Grumpy sadly gives Gingersnaps a cookie, and suddenly, Gingersnaps is no longer his servant (it appears that you need a cookie to end a Pfeffernüsse elf's servitude)! The elf thanks Grumpy and goes home; and while The 7D resume their holiday joy, Grumpy goes upstairs and finds a present on his bed. Inside is a pair of ear muffs from Gingersnaps to drown out The 7D's joy, and as the episode ends, Grumpy admits he likes him after all.
