  • What becomes of Dexter?

    I think that for destroying Santa's sleigh, his house, and shaving off Santa's beard, Dexter is gonna regret the whole thing for the rest of his life. His father being Santa Claus and his mother a reindeer. Where did he learn such a ridiculous tale?
  • Well,that proves it.Dexter's Laborotry doesn't know a thing about Christmas.

    Oh,great.Another genius who ruined Christmas.I'll get to the point why this episode is the worst Christmas special ever.Dexter just thought that Santa was his dad and just ruined everything.Now that proves to kids that they just want to kill Dexter.So the real point that the message is that the creators of this show are not getting serious.Dee-Dee just ruined the real thing of Christmas and Santa said "The presents".WTH?!That is not LOL!Dexter was right about Christmas,but Dee-Dee doesn't know anything about it.All she cares about is messing around Dexter's lab and her present instead of her brother.And why are TV and Movie Santas are always so lazy and wrong about everything?So this episode proves Dee-Dee is not better than Dexter.moreless
  • I'll admit this episode was pretty cruel, but come on, it was also hilarious at the same time!

    So Dexter wants to prove to DeeDee that Santa's not real and it's just Mom (Reindeer) and Dad (Santa). Fair enough.

    So when Santa does arrive, Dexter goes to everylength to prove his theory. So let's see;

    -He tries to yank off Santa's beard

    -He rips the reindeer's horns off its head with his bare hands.

    -He chases Santa's sleigh through the sky with his chimney airplane and blasts him out of the sky and down to earth, crashing through Dexter's house's roof.

    -His shooting down of Santa's sleigh almost completely destroys the house and the decorations.

    -At to top it all off, Dexter shaves off Santa's beard just before seeing his angry parents and sister standing behind him, showing how he was wrong.

    And of course, we learn at the end that the Christmas is all about as Santa said, "The presents." LOL!

    Okay, so again, yeah, there were moments I laughed at that were truthfully sad and sadistic, e.g. Dexter's Mom's crying of the destroyed Christmas tree, The reindeers horns being riped off, etc, but overall, I found the episode completely hilarious. You may disagree with me, but hey, that's YOUR opinion. This is mine.moreless
  • Why did Dexter have to ruin Christmas?

    This episode is so painful to watch you would not believe how painful it is. I liked the episode 'Dexter and Computress Get Mandark' and 'Pain In The Mouth', but when this episode came on, I had to turn it off. I couldn't watch Dexter shave the beard off of Santa Claus. Speaking of it, Dexter had Santa confused with his own father! He also had his mother confused with Santa's reindeer. He also tried to shave Santa's beard, but when he shaved it, that wasn't Dexter's father. His father was standing behind him, angry. So was his mother and Dee Dee. I'm gonna close this review now.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Dee Dee takes the microphone from Dexter during his rap. But, in the next scene, the mic on her hand disappears.

    • Throughout the episode, the number of reindeer changed. When we see them on the computer screen, there are only two. When they were on the roof, there was only one, and when Dexter was chasing Santa, there are eight of them.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • (Dexter performs a rap number on what really happens on Christmas eve...)
      Dexter: WORD! (begins snapping to the beat) Hoooo!
      Dad dresses up in a Santa getup,
      And then he puts the car up on the rooftop!
      He makes the car look like a sleigh, here,
      And Mom dresses up just like a reindeer!
      She greases up dad so he'll slide down the chimney,
      And put all our presents around the tree!
      Then Mom pulls him up, and by and by,
      They drive down the roof and into the sky!
      You go to the window cause you heard a little sound,
      And see Santa fly by before they all hit the ground!
      Everybody say HOOOOOOO! Yeah!

    • Santa: (flies past Dee Dee's window) Ho ho ho!
      Dee Dee: Hi, Santa!
      Dexter: (flies past Dee Dee's window) Come back here, Dad!
