's 12 Days of Clips-mas, Day 11: Santa Goes to Night Court

To help you get into the holiday spirit, for the next 12 days, we'll provide you with one classic holiday TV clip. We've scoured through our archives and your comments on our story in which we asked you to name your favorite holiday episodes, and came up with a list of dazzling, heartwarming, and totally weird holiday clips. And instead of sharing the same ol' episodes we've all seen (don't get us wrong, we're totally down with some Festivus and Holiday Armadillo) we erred on the side of strange and obscure to keep things interesting.

Day 11: Night Court puts Kris Kringle on Trial

Okay, Night Court is one of those series that danced so well between heartfelt and ridiculous moments. This Christmas episode is a great example—a truly special installment that actually made me believe (a little bit more) in magic. A man who claims he's Santa Claus is brought into court for pretending he's Santa Claus. And well, the results are very Dickensian. (Also, keep your eyes peeled for a baby Michael J. Fox. Not literally a baby, but you'll see.)
