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

John Kricfalusi, the creator of The Ren & Stimpy Show (1991), claimed the Mr. Hankey concept was stolen from his cartoon short, "Nutty the Friendly Dump", which was part of a cartoon book series viewable online. Kricfalusi said after the show aired, "I got nine or 10 messages from friends screaming, 'I can't believe this! They totally stole your story!' ... This idea of [poop] singing or dancing and being friends, well, that is my idea." Kricfalusi said he felt other elements of South Park (1997) were lifted from his work, and he told media outlets his company Spümcø was contemplating taking legal action against Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Comedy Central spokesman Tony Fox said Stone and Parker were not familiar with "Nutty the Friendly Dump" and that the claim was "ludicrous". Parker said he had never seen more than half an episode of Ren and Stimpy, which he said he did not enjoy because the characters were too over-the-top and the voice acting was too annoying. Parker said Kricfalusi eventually contacted them: "He wrote a letter back saying, 'Oh, OK, I see how it could just be a coincidence, but you should just admit to the press that you're a big Ren and Stimpy fan.' - I'm not a Ren and Stimpy fan." Ironically, the episode actually featured a reference to Ren and Stimpy when Mr. Mackey calls Kyle a "sick little monkey". See more »

Great Christmas episode!
25 December 2008 | by gangstahippieSee 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.
