A CHiPs Christmas Episode
2 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Chirtmas Watch,thieves steal a church bell, which may dampen the holidays from some Sunday School children.

A church's bell is about to be hung just prior to Christmas but it is stolen. When the Reverend chases after the bell, he loses them. Luckily, Ponch and Jon are just around the corner.

After the briefing, the bell thieves steal a station wagon which was for sale. Then the woman who had her car stolen shows up, Jon realizes that she was called in by a fake officer and left her home unattended. He goes off to save her house. Meanwhile, at the house, the thieves took all the Christmas presents.

Ponch's concerned Mom asks him about his motorcycle accident. Later, the thieves get in an accident, give the guy $1200, and drive off. Baricza calls it in and Ponch, Jon, and Bonnie respond. They all manage to box in the van. That night at the church, the CHP shows up with the bell in the middle of "Silent Night". While the kids are ringing the bell, the CHP gets a call and moves out. They'll be on duty while we sleep in heavenly peace.

Also in it,the CHP is also preparing for Christmas.

A worthwhile Christmas episode for Season 3 of CHiPs.
