A.N.T. Farm Wiki
I've got it! We rig the next pack of jack-in-the-boxes, with boobie traps, to go off in Skidmore's face!

"sANTa's little helpers" is the nineteenth episode in Season 1 of A.N.T. Farm. It first aired on December 9, 2011.


When Principal Skidmore asks the A.N.T.s to make toys that are supposedly for orphans, they soon find out that Skidmore has been selling them online for her own profit. So, in order to teach her a lesson, the A.N.T.s booby trap the toys. However, when Skidmore reveals that she decided to donate the faulty toys, the A.N.T.s must find a way to sneak into the orphanage and get the gifts back. Meanwhile, Cameron helps Darryl find the right gift for Roxanne.


Everyone is in the Christmas spirit at Webster High School, strangely including Principal Skidmore, who asks Chyna, Olive and Fletcher to create special toys using their talents to distribute to needy kids. After starting to create musical jack-in-the-boxes, the A.N.T.s are shocked to discover Skidmore has been selling them online for a profit. They then come up with a plan to secretly booby trap the gifts so they will go off in Skidmore's face. However, when Skidmore decides to donate the last batch of toys to an orphanage, the A.N.T.s must dress up as elves (except for Chyna who is dressed like Santa Claus), sneak through the chimney, and get the toys back before they go off. Meanwhile, Cameron helps Darryl to spy on Roxanne to find out what she's getting him for Christmas so he can match the price.
