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>

Trivia

This short was made for FOX executive Brian Graden to send out to his friends as a Christmas card. Because of some of the content he realized when it was completed that he really couldn't send it out to all his friends. The ones that did get it, passed it around and the resulting buzz led to the possibility for a television series South Park (1997), first at FOX and finally at Comedy Central. See more »

Sick but fun
16 October 1998 | by (Forest Grove, OR) – See all my reviews

This is probably the sickest, most demented thing ever put on film. Which, of course, is what makes it so brilliant. It is disgusting and banal, not to mention perverse and profane. But simply the idea of Santa and Jesus fighting it out at a Mall to decide who Christmas is really about is something worth watching. There's a reason SOUTH PARK is such a brilliant television show and it's all here.
