Warner CEO Thaddeus Plotz has had it with Ralph the security guard's inability to keep the Warner kids from running amok, and has him fired-on Christmas Eve no less. That evening, Plotz is visited by three spirits (who strangely resemble 3 familiar siblings!), that show him the error of his ways.Written by
So 'twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Some creatures was stirring
Including a mouse!
[points at Pinky and Brain]
Tonight my dear Pinky our plan is unfurled, we'll steal Santa's sleigh and take over the world!
Brain you're a genius, you simply astound me
[accidentally hits Brain with a sack he's carrying knocking him off the tower]
Narf Brain's gonna pound me!

Love animation to bits. It was a big part of my life as a child, especially Disney, Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbera and Tom and Jerry (with tastes broadening further getting older with Pixar, Studio Ghibli and some of the more mature animations out there), and still love it to this day as a young adult whether it's film, television or cartoons. Actually appreciate it even more now, with more knowledge of the different animation styles, directors, studios and what work went into them.
'Animaniacs' has always been one of my favourites. From an early age, it always stood out as one of the most colourful, unique, funniest and cleverest shows, animated and otherwise, ever made. It is not to be dismissed as a show just for children. There is plenty for children to enjoy, any child who loves great animation, humour to laugh at and unique characters will be in heaven. There is more than plenty for adults too, especially the hugely clever in-jokes/poking fun that is likely to be better understood by older viewers with more familiarity for what is being referenced and poked fun at.
This is not quite one of my personal favourite 'Animaniacs' episodes, not always as original as other episodes, the previous episode did slightly better at its depiction of the Christmas holiday. Nonetheless, it is enormously entertaining and inventive and never loses its interest value, the festive season well captured.
In all the segments throughout, the animation is very well done, with vibrant colouring, crisp beautiful backgrounds and convincing movements for the characters. The music is not only catchy it is actually memorable as well, with an instantly hummable main theme.
The script and humour are witty and hilarious with clever references and inside jokes throughout. As are the situations no matter how silly they are the characters get into. This all springs from a great concept, some shows have a great concept but don't live up to it.
'Animaniacs' was always one of the finest examples of execution of a great concept doing that and superbly, with the story lines here being funny and endearing. The characters are immensely likable with unique personalities, with no exception.
Characters that are brilliantly voiced by the likes of Rob Paulsen, Tress MacNeille, Jess Harnell, Maurice LaMarche and Frank Welker.
All in all, great episode. 9/10 Bethany Cox
