Wasp Movie is the fifty-seventh episode of Count Gauntly's Horrors from the Public Domain.
Santa arrives in the Crypt. Having just endured another grueling Christmas season, he has begun to evaluate his long-term goals. In order to continue in his job as Santa for as long as possible, he has recently undergone experimental rejuvenation treatments involving royal jelly extracted from wasps. As the episode progresses, side effects from these treatments become increasingly apparent, with Santa growing more and more bee-like in appearance and behavior.
Gauntly encourages Santa to drink some blood to reconnect with his humanity. Unfortunately, the blood is of indeterminate origin, and contains further bee-based contaminants. By the end of the episode, Santa has gone full bee, with Gauntly well on the way himself. However, the two join together to sing "Que Sera, Sera," acknowledging that "whatever will bee, will bee."
