Storyline

On Christmas Eve, Marge admonishes the family not to open presents until 7 a.m. the next morning. Bart finds a way around the directive and opens his gifts at 5 a.m. However, his prized gift - a remote-controlled fire truck - overheats and causes a fire that engulfs the tree and presents. The family investigates and Bart tells them that a burglar has struck. As a result of Kent Brockman's human interest story, the entire town donates gifts and cash to the Simpsons for their "misfortune." Eventually, Bart admits the truth, angering his clueless family but angering the town even more (when Brockman finds out the truth). The family is made into outcasts, and Marge's attempt to win the needed funds on "Jeopardy!" (to pay everybody back) fails miserably. Eventually, the townspeople loot the Simpsons' home ... save for a dust rag.

Trivia

As Chief Wiggum leaves the Simpsons' house, he is carrying a doll of Binky, a character from the "Life in Hell" comic strip by series creator Matt Groening. See more »

Goofs

Although in real life, anyone with $0 or less at the end of the Double Jeopardy round is eliminated, when Marge is on Jeopardy!, she is seen on Final Jeopardy with a deficit of $5,200. This is obviously used as a joke, along with Alex Trebek's guest appearance as a pushy, sinister version of himself, rather than reflecting the real rules of the game show. See more »

Bart: Aren't we forgeting the true meaning of Christmas? You know, the birth of Santa.
