    Living with Bud has some definite benefits; Hyde finds this out when he's having his first Christmas party at Bud's place, and Bud leaves the guys alone with a keg of beer. Eric suffers the consequences of being bad at quarters, and has to be carried home, where Red and Kitty decide that Bud needs a talking to about proper parenting practices. Meanwhile, Jackie is desperate for a boyfriend, and drags Donna out to a bar where they meet some interesting firemen. I thought that this was an excellent Christmas episode of "That 70s Show". It was very funny and the storyline was very good. The episode had a well done pacing as well. The part that really made me laugh was when Eric made an impression of Red (Red was standing behind him) and then when Eric turns out and saw that Red heard it, he threw up on Red's shoes then Red says "Son of a b***" and then Kelso says "When did you eat spaghetti?"... that part literally cracked me up. Bud acting like a real parent was also hilarious especially when he told Hyde "And eat your banana (paused for like 5 second) you dumb@$$". More parts made me laugh hard as well. Overall, this was an excellent Christmas episode of "That 70s Show" that is totally worth watching and will bring you a lot of laughs. 10/10

    Another Christmas in the 70s, and this might not be the most memorable episode, but looking back, it's probably one of the funniest of season three. We've got amazing elements that make this one of the funniest episodes of the year. With one liners that cracked me up, and the comedy continuing to be consistent, the laughter did not stop.

    We've got smoking loopy Kitty on Christmastime. Who stole the show in my opinion. We've got Drunk Eric, Fez in general, and Red of course who is the main focus of this episode regarding fatherhood. When Eric comes home drunk and pukes on his shoes, Red gives Bud, Hyde's dad, a talking too. The whole Christmas party was hilarious, from Eric failing at the cup game to Fez almost lighting himself on fire. Jackie & Donna were probably the only minor setback, I did get a few laughs, but it was not as funny as the main plot. And Jackie throwing the hat in Donna's face was incredibly cheesy and played out. Jackie: I'm going to be alone on Christmas.
    Donna: And Jesus wept.

    Probably the only hilarious line from their plot. Great Christmas episode, with amazing humor.
  • Love this episode.

    This episode is another holiday episode. In this episode, Hyde has a rager at his father's home, and he has lots of fun with that. The raging keg party turns into a huge, huge, huge, extremely huge party. Jackie and Donna have a little ' girl's night out ' when Jackie convinces Donna to go to a local bar in Point Place with her. This episode got some laughs from me, it was pretty good. It really was nothing special, though. Usually, Christmas episodes of That '70s Show are a little higher quality than this. So, I'm not that impressed by this episode.

  • Hil-freakin-arious

    Hyde's Christmas Rager is in the top ten best episodes of the series. Everyone is right on the money. You'll get to see Fez make some ice, the guys play quarters, Jackie almost get scammed and Eric mock Red and throw up all over his shoes. Instead of getting mad, Red helps out Hyde's dad and even gets Eric a Christmas present =)
  • We wish you a drunken christmas...

    This episode is possibly the funniest Christmas episode for so many reasons:

    Fez making ice
    Big Bald Party Pooper
    Bud becoming Red
    Red’s punishment/present for Eric
    The not-so fulfilled fireman fantasy
    Fez almost catching fire

    Fez lying in quarters, saying that he, for once, would not pick Eric to drink (“it’s fun to lie”) is a great moment in the episode along with Eric’s drunkenness and Red’s shoes, not to mention Kelso putting ice down Fez’s pants (fourth time and still funny…).

    Kitty’s overreaction to the olives is hilarious as is Bud clearly learning parenting skills from Red “dumbass” and overall, this is one entertaining episode.

  • An awesome episode.

    This is one of my favorite episodes of That '70s Show. Every character is funny in this episode. Eric is especially great in this episode. I miss episodes like this. Jackie's storyline was funny, as well. Just seeing the four guys together just makes me want Topher and Ashton to come back to the show.

    Eric does a really good impression of someone who is drunk. I like how he throws up on Red's shoes. I also love his impression of Red. A big, bald party pooper. Hilarious.

    Anyways, I know this episode is hard to find on TV. But you can always buy the season three DVD. I know I recommend it.
