Storyline

When Louie Anderson was a kid, he lived with 10 siblings and a loud-mouthed father. Now Christmas was rolling around and everyone but Dad was in the spirit. They go out and buy a Christmas tree - for $35. Then Dad literally throws lights on the house. Mom notices elderly neighbor Mrs. Stillman, who's widowed and all alone, so Mom talks Dad into decorating her house for her while Mom takes her out. Dad has Louie help him. He's hounded by cops and neighborhood kids who take him for a burglar, but soon they help out as well. Mrs. Stillman loves the surprise, and so when January comes around, guess who Dad nominates to help him take down the decorations. Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

A great Christmas special!
13 February 2002 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This television special aired on Fox... in prime time as I recall. Comic Louie Anderson tells the story of one Christmas when he was a kid, trying to bring the Christmas to a neighbor. This was a great special. The humor was top notch and it was a great story. An equally awesome Saturday morning series followed the next year. Thumbs up.
