  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (18)

    • Narrator: And on that magical day, stumbling upon all of that. Was a surprised little boy, in a red poof ball hat. Stan: What the hell?

    • Woodland Critters: It's almost time of the time of year. The time that comes just once a year. We can hardly wait 'cause it's so near. It's a woodland critter Christmas!

    • Beary: Gee wiz Santa, you're not gonna kill me are y… (Santa blows his brains out)

    • Santa: Alright, what the hell is going on?! Why is there a red star glowing in the sky?! Squirrely: We finally did it Santa! We brought forth the Anti-Christ with help from our good friend Stanley! Mousey: Death and pain await all living things! Santa (stares angrily at Stan): Little boy you should be ashamed! Stan: Yea but I didn't mean to help them, I tried to stop them! Santa: Well good going stupid! There's only one way to stop devil-worshipping critters. (Pulls out a shotgun, cocks it, and blows Squirrely's head off)

    • Squirrely: Hey look it's Santa Claus! Woodland Critters: Yay!! Racoony: Let's eat his flesh!

    Notes (1)

    • 3rd Christmas special without Mr. Hankey.

    Trivia (8)

    • Spoiler alert!: The narrating closing quote is just like the one from the episode "Pip": "...And they all lived happily ever after, except for Pocket who died of Hepatitis B".

    • The narrator says it is Christmas Eve, but later when Stan takes the mountain lions to learn abortions, the doctor says its three days before Christmas. This proves that Cartman did not proofread his paper.

    • Cartman was wearing the same winter sweater he wore in the episode "Red Sleigh Down".

    • The idea of Immaculate Conception has been confused with that of virgin birth. Immaculate Conception is the idea that Mary was born without sin. This life without sin is what allows her to birth Jesus. I suppose you could just chalk this up to Cartman's an idiot, although it is a common error.

    • Towards the end of the episode when Squirrelly announces the birth of the Anti-Christ you can clearly see Rabbity standing next to him in the close up shot, despite the fact that he was sacrificed and fed upon by the other animals earlier.

    Allusions (11)

    • When Stan refuses be a part of the narrative anymore, he sits and watches T.V., and we hear the song "Movin' on Up" by Ja'net DuBois, which means he was watching The Jeffersons.

    • Welcome to Hell: The pentagram on the sacrificial altar they sacrifice Rabitty on is the same as on the cover of Welcome to Hell by the band Venom, with the goat's head in the middle and the symbols surrounding it being the same (except its all red instead of yellow).

    • Hail Hitler: When they say hail Satan they are saying it frighteningly close to the way that the German's said 'Heil Hitler'. It becomes an old commentary that equates Hitler to Satan.

    • The Jungle Book: The lion cubs call Stan "man-boy." This is similar to The Jungle Book, where Balloo called Mowgli "man-cub".

    • How the Grinch Stole Christmas: The way this episode is narrated is similar to the style used in the 1966 television special Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
