Storyline

A heart warming tale of four children trying to decide which to cheer for: Jesus, or Santa. It almost makes one wonder what Brian Boitano would do in this situation. In the end, though, they decide that Christmas isn't a time for settling old scores, Christmas is about one thing: presents. Written by Austin Williams <sporks5000@hotmail.com>

Jesus, Santa Claus and Brian Boitano visit South Park for Christmas
14 December 2012 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

The Spirit of Christmas (a.k.a South Park The Un-Aired Plot of 1995), is actually the second instalment of South Park Christmas shorts, with 1992 The Spirit of Christmas: Mr.Frost being the pioneer. And if you are looking for an original South Park short with what every fan loves most about, you shouldn't miss this one. And here is why:

* A strong character goal -->> Stan and Kyle seek the true meaning of Christmas during a discussion

* One Amazing Story Catalyst -->> Jesus descends into town in the middle of Stan and Kyle's discussion

* Not a character driven story, but story driven characters -->> One of the unique episodes that doesn't follow what Stan does, it follows instead what Jesus does

* Memorable lines -->> (1) Jesus: Tomorrow is my birthday

Stan: Your birthday is on Christmas? That sucks dude!

(2) Cartman: I say we help Santa Claus.

Kyle: Your just saying that because he brings you candy.

Cartman: Hey I don't have to take that kind of sh*t from a Jew.

Kyle: Your such a fat f*ck Cartman that when you walk down the street people go darn that kids a big fat f*ck.

* Kenny is getting killed losing her nob, alongside to 6 other Southpark civilians, her screaming for death is her only line

* And the best of all -->> Jesus combats Santa Claus hand to hand.

If my research is not wrong, this animation short has come out just before the Chipmunks' Christmas Special that year, remember where Dave tells the chipmunks that Christmas is not just about presents when Alvin collects money to buy himself a Christmas gift. Of all the Christmas animations and cartoons, I'd vote for the South Park Christmas short. This is pure and original fun.
