Episode Notes

Opening theme cartoon: Unknown

This episode was originally slated to air in December of 2000, but was deemed too violent for the show's Sunday 7pm timeslot. However, the episode finally aired a year later on December 23, 2001 at 9:30PM (Eastern Standard Time).

LOOK HARD: When the guy was giving the safety message on the TV you'll see parts of Santa's rampage that we saw from "Xmas Story."

John DiMaggio (Bender) takes over the role of Santa Claus, who was voiced by John Goodman in "Xmas Story."

Episode Quotes
Professor Farnsworth: (to Fry, Leela and Bender) Cover that fireplace, confound you! I've only a few years to live! I don't want to spend them dead.
