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.
