Oh man, I forgot about this one.

I remember my mum having the same level of detached disappointment in me as Marge when I'd really upset her

This episode is painfully accurate

Season 1, also great but 2 and 3 are just on a whole other level imo

American Dad s6e8, “For Whom the Sleigh Bell Tolls.” Find me any other episode of television with more kills by candy cane. You can’t!

I just saw Violent Night and there's a similar candy cane scene that made me think of this episode

The michael scott show - benihana Christmas. He had to mark the waitress.


SomeDudeinCO3 t1_j1ec5i3 wrote

Came here to mention that one. The whole episode is great but marking the waitress was comedy at its best.

Love this list. Started watching and found out The Hey Arnold! Episode is actually from season 1, not season 2.

Friends had some feel-good Christmas episodes. Armadillo one stands out.

I may have some recency bias but “The Plight Before Christmas” from Bob’s Burgers hit all the right notes for me.

Going back a few decades, The “Hey, Arnold” Christmas Special is pretty great. I teach elementary school and play it for my students every year on the day before Winter Break.

Bobs Burgers: “Plight before Christmas” The most recent Christmas episode is frankly the show’s best, showcasing the loving and funny dynamic between the family as the parents try to attend 3 different Christmas performances.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: “Amends” One of the best of the show as Angel grapples with ghosts of his Christmas past as they torment him for his past deeds.

Doctor Who “A Christmas Carol” Doctor Who does a timey wimey take on the classic story.

Doctor Who “The Snowman” The Doctor is retired, but will he stay retired as he is drawn into the plight of a Victorian governess and a conspiracy involving living snowmen?

Doctor Who “Last Christmas” Every Christmas is last Christmas. This one is basically the Alien meets Inception at the North Pole.

Doctor Who “Husbands of River Song” A comedy romp where the Doctor reunites with his wife and meets her other husband.

30 Rock “Christmas Attack Zone” Jack’s family all meet each other. It’s as a sharp witted as they come.

Twilight Zone “Changing of the Guard” This 1960s episode focuses on a teacher being forced to retire and his despair as contemplates his worth.

Nathan For You - Santa; Petting Zoo (S1E2)

Nathan tries to get a mall Santa extra gigs by doing gigs in the summer time. We find out Santa has a sordid past and there’s a confrontation with mall security.

To add a different one in the mix from what I've seen so far on the thread, I think "Merry Christmas, Johnny Rose" from Schitt's Creek, while not "the best" Christmas episode, should make a shortlist.


Bigfreezer t1_j1edhuy wrote

Ted Lasso -Carol of the Bells Episode quickly became a fave for us.


west11791 t1_j1editi wrote

Bob’s Burgers is always great for Christmas episodes, but the most recent one (Season 13, episode 10, The Plight Before Christmas) was incredible. The show is always wholesome in its own way, but this episode is on another level.


downonthesecond t1_j1ee0ak wrote

Hey Arnold - Arnold's Christmas is probably the best episode.

I recently watched Regular Show's "Merry Christmas Mordecai" and "The White Elephant Gift Exchange" and they're pretty great.


Akominatos t1_j1ee3yz wrote

The Black Mirror White Christmas episode.


LordDusty t1_j1ee4l0 wrote

So many British sitcoms have great ones.

Bottom (Holy), Blackadder's Christmas Carol, Father Ted (A Christmassy Ted), My Family (Sixty Feet Under), The Good Life (Silly, But It's Fun), Porridge, Only Fools and Horses, dinnerladies, Vicar of Dibley, Last of the Summer Wine, etc, etc

  • Family Guy, 9:7 “Road to the North Pole”

  • Rick & Morty, 1:3 “Anatomy Park”

I know they’re both cartoons; I don’t care.
