Red Sleigh Down!
25 December 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Red Sleigh Down is the season 6 Christmas special of South Park.It's pretty entertaining and an action-packed episode.Cartman finds out he needs to do something very good to get the specific toy he wants.He decides that if he brings Christmas to Iraq, Santa will see that he is good.Him and the boys go with Santa and Mr Hankey to Iraq, however some Iraqis shoot Santa down and begin to torture him.It's now up to the boys and Jesus to save him! The episode spoofs elements of the movie "Three Kings". This is a fairly good Christmas episode of South Park and it also marks the return of Kenny who was absent from this season.
