After years of being mistreated by Frank during the holiday season when he buys gifts for himself, Dennis and Dee decide to teach him a lesson by contacting his old business partner, Eugene, for help to make the mean-spirited and nihilist Frank see the Christmas spirit of giving, rather than taking. Meanwhile, Mac and Charlie reflect on their childhood Christmases, and realize that they were not as joyous and wonderful as they remembered from Mac remembering being taught how to break into peoples houses to steal their Christmas presents by his career-criminal parents, and Charlie who remembers his single, boozed-out, coked-up mother inviting a slew of "Santas"/clients over at her house.

Dennis Reynolds: How are we doing over here?
Dee Reynolds: Uh... Not well. This is ridiculous. People are definitely starting to notice.
Dennis Reynolds: Of course they're starting to notice. There's a grown man crammed inside of a couch for Christ's sake. They're going to notice. So let's just talk to somebody. Can you grab that guy?

Soon to be must see every Christmas.
13 January 2010 | by (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) – See all my reviews

This is so hilarious & I loved every second of it. It was nice to see them have some F-Bomb's in there too. This is one of those shows that has found it's rhythm & continues to get better funnier & more absurd. I can just see every script reading & how hard it must be to not just continually laugh all the way through. This show is pretty brilliant & this is one of the funnier specials I've seen. The whole old fashioned claymation(?) & the accompanying song is truly inspired & funny as hell. If you like the show you'll love this special. If you don't know the show well it's still funny but you won't enjoy it as much. I never thought I'd see a show quite as good as "Arrested Development" but this sure is close. I would say this & "Modern Family" are the funniest shows on TV right now. If you enjoy "South Park" you are sure to enjoy these absolutely classic characters & the actors who should all have plenty of work in TV & movies in the future just because of how good they all are. This is some of the best work Danny Devito has ever done & he shows why he was so good on "Taxi" some 30 years ago. If you think that garbage like "2 1/2 Men" are funny then well you don't know how to appreciate great dirty writing. However if you get sick of the same ol' so-called "JOKES," on said show, then c'mon over & jump on the hilarity bandwagon! You'll be glad you did.
