Storyline

As the holiday season approaches in South Park, Kyle finds himself in a bind. On the one hand, he feels left out as the only Jew when everyone is celebrating Christmas. On the other, none of the other kids believe him when he tries to tell them about Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo. When the real Mr. Hankey shows up, only Kyle and see him and ends up getting locked in a mental hospital. Meanwhile, the rest of the town is in an uproar, with everyone finding something in the school holiday pageant to be offended by. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

The unsuccessful efforts by the South Park Elementary School in the episode to include people of non-Christian denomination were inspired by similarly failed attempts Trey Parker and Matt Stone witnessed growing up. Parker cited as an example a chorus concert in which the single Jewish student was asked to sing her own Hanukkah song while everybody else sang Christmas songs; although the idea was to make the student feel special, Parker said it only made her feel more lonely and isolated.

Goofs

Mrs. Broflovski complains that Kyle is playing Joseph of Arimathea in the nativity. She is thinking of the wrong Joseph. Joseph of Nazareth was married to Mary; Joseph of Arimathea was the man who gave up his tomb so that Jesus could be buried there. See more »

Quotes

Great Christmas episode!
25 December 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

I always enjoyed the Christmas episodes of South Park! I even bought the DVD compilation of all the Christmas episodes recently! This is the first Christmas episode that was out(not counting the spirit of Christmas shorts).This was a fairly good episode and I enjoyed it.Christmas has come to south park but Kyle feels left out because he is Jewish while virtually everyone else is Christian and celebrating Christmas.Kyle keeps seeing this talking piece of poo named "Mr.Hankey", but everyone else thinks he is crazy.Meanwhile, Kyle's mother is upset about the nativity scene being in a school play, which starts everybody else asking for things to be removed from the Christmas play that seem offensive.This is a funny and great Christmas episode! Two interesting notes: 1.This marks the first time the school counselor Mr.Mackey is seen. 2.In this episode, Cartman sings the "Kyle's mom is a b*tch song" which was later used in the South Park movie.
