Merry X-Mas

Most people have their favorite holiday specials they watch on or around Christmas. For some it’s Charlie Brown, for others it’s Rudolph, National Lampoons, The Christmas Story or Scrooged with Bill Murray. As you have probably guessed, the thing I watch is holiday episodes of Futurama.

Just about every year I make a Robot Santa joke on Christmas Eve, but I realized I have never properly explained the reference to those readers who might have been living under a rock for the last century or two and never experienced that splendid show. I figured I might as well show a clip or two to you before SOPA makes posting snippets of copyrighted material on the internet impossible.

So here is an abridged version of the Robot Santa story – at least as much of it as Comedy Central will allow me to show.




Have a safe and awesome holidays, whichever ones you happen to celebrate this December.

    I have seen the robot santa ep before, but it’s still annoying that the uk/us can’t share the same content. I fear things are going to get worse in the not too distant future.

    So much for a united world through a digital medium. If they won’t ‘share’, then I’ll have to pirate it. When will they learn – don’t piss off your audience!

    @ mcai8sh4:

    I know, I mean god forbid someone from outside US would watch these promotional videos and have a chuckle. TV execs have analog minds – they probably decided to block the rest of the world afraid that foreigners will waste all their bandwidth. Sigh…
