Trivia

Originally South Park started as two animated shorts, both named "The Spirit Of Christmas", clips of which could be seen in the original opening title sequence on screens they passed (the title sequence used until this season's "4th Grade"). The first featured Baby Jesus battling an evil Frosty, the second featuring an adult Jesus fighting Santa. In this episode, the boys make the latter version as their special. This episode depicts the difficulties Matt Stone and Trey Parker had when making the original shorts. See more »

Goofs

When Kyle asks Stan to try and do Cartman's voice, Stan has a script in his hand. Next frame Stan has no script, then Kyle gives one to Stan. See more »

Quotes

Kyle: [about Butters' cutouts of the boys] Of course, Stan's got blue eyes and I have a sharper nose, but these are pretty close!

Gives us glimpses of the "Spirit Of Christmas 1995" short film
25 December 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Before South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone made two animated Christmas short films featuring early versions of the South Park characters.You can find them both on youtube, but this episode gives us some glimpses of the 1995 Spirit of Christmas.The boys see that nobody is buying them presents because they do not want to celebrate with material things.So the mayor asks them to create a Christmas short which should send them into a shopping frenzy.The boys try to make one.They make the spirit of Christmas short and their experiences with it mirror the ones Trey and Matt had when they made it.Meanwhile, Mr Hankey has a family which is why he has been busy this year.This is a funny and good Christmas episode!
