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 can 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 <>

Did You Know?


This was considered the first musical episode of the series, and included such songs as "Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo", "A Lonely Jew on Christmas" and "Kyle's Mom is a Big Fat Bitch". Trey Parker and Matt Stone were initially concerned about making a musical because, Parker said, "The general rule was people hated musicals". See more »


Mrs. Broflovski complains that Kyle is playing Joseph of Arimathea in the nativity. She is thinking of the wrong Joseph. Joseph of Nazareth was married to Mary; Joseph of Arimathea was the man who gave up his tomb so that Jesus could be buried there. See more »


Mr. Garrison: Oh my lord Kyle, did you just throw a Doo-Doo at Eric?

Smears of Festive Joy
8 June 2020 | by injury-65447See all my reviews

This episode is so much funnier than I remembered. I was laughing so hard I was out of breath! It's probably the Funniest one I've seen on my rewatch so far.

The highlight for me is Cartman's improvised song about Kyle's mom. It's so catchy and infectious - I had to rewind and listen to it twice while dancing along.

The Mr Hankey character is so ingrained in my mind now that it's hard to remember how extremely WEIRD it actually is. So inventive and original. The way he leaves smears wherever he goes is a gloriously disgusting detail. A great running gag in the episode is the fact that he's invisible to everybody except Kyle, which makes it look like Kyle is simply playing with his bowel movements. A perfect example of the type Of gross humour the show is famous for.

This episode is pure joy to watch - I can feel the Christmas spirit shining through.
