This episode was the very last episode following the completion of Team America: World Police (2004), which overlapped with most of this season of South Park. Trey Parker states in the episode commentary that he roared like a lion after getting in his car upon completion of this episode. See more »

Christmas time is once a year, every critter holds it dear
2 November 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

After watching the episode today for almost 100th time, I decided I should write a review. This happens to be my favorite episode of South Park. Stan finds some critters in the forest who wants to celebrate Christmas, one of the critters porcupine is pregnant and is to give birth to the savior of the critters. Stan helps them but later on discovers that the critters are evil and the porcupine is going to give birth to the anti-Christ.

This episode has references of blood orgy in critters in which they sacrifice the rabbit, that alludes to the rabbit test a long way back, where rabbit where used to confirm the pregnancy, where in the end rabbit would die. It was very cool the way they showed it here. Plus lion cubs assisting in abortions was damn funny. And, Stan's reaction during the entire episode was fantabulous.

This and Scott Tennorman must die has to be the most no holds barred kind of episodes ever made on any shows. Nobody dares to make such bold episodes other than Matt and Trey. Hats off to you, and keep 'em coming.
