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!

Good episode!
18 May 2009 | by (I Don't Know Where I'm From) – See all my reviews

This is an episode of South Park from season 4. It's about the 4 boys wanting to wish Mr Hankey The Christmas Poo a Merry Christmas, so they make an animated movie, which is basically "The Spirit Of Christmas", an old animated short Trey Parker and Matt Stone made back in 1995, which started South Park, which can be seen on the South park Hits DVD. Anyway, I liked this episode a lot. It's not one of the top 10 best, but it still is pretty good. Definitely worth watching online or on the season 4 DVD set (which I own, actually I own every episode of South Park)

9/10 or: A-
