TV.com's 12 Days of Clips-mas, Day 4: Community's Holiday Brawl

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 4: Community's Holiday Brawl

Community's holiday episodes have all been great, but Season 1's "Merry Happy" entry stands out because it signified one of the first times the gang progressed beyond their status as a patchwork band of school losers and took a step toward becoming Greendale's Super Friends. And in the series' true wacky fashion, that meant we saw the gang bonding over a shirts-and-skins schoolyard fight with Anthony Michael Hall. Yes, everybody wound up bloody and bruised, but they won together, and that's what the Christmas spirit is all about.

Ed. Note: On account of our looming holiday vacation, we're cheating a bit today and letting this story count as the weekly dose of Community coverage we've promised you. We'll be back in 2012 with more study group goodness!)

Try as I might, I can never get the Forest Whitaker eyes right.



Also, I love Anthony Michael Hall as Mike.

Okaaaaaay. Totally understandable, everyone needs to take holiday. This is a good one though, but I was thinking of Season 2's animated fight/song at the end. Either way, a clip from Community means you can't lose.
