HABF01 - Simpsons Christmas Stories

Much like the Simpsons' annual "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween episodes, this season's Christmas episode -- [HABF01] "Simpsons Christmas Stories" -- will feature a trilogy of Yuletide stories:

The First (Annoyed Grunt) el – When Reverend Lovejoy’s car breaks down, Homer takes over the sermon and gives his version of the birth of Christ, featuring Joseph (Homer), Mary (Marge) and the evil King Herod (Burns).

I Saw Grampa Cussing Santa Claus – Grampa’s out to exact his revenge on Father Christmas. During the war, Grampa and his gunner, Burns, were shot down and stranded on an island. They thought Santa was an enemy aircraft and shot down his sleigh. When they realised their mistake, they repaired the sleigh, and Santa rode away, promising to send help, but never did.

The Nutcracker… Sweet – The people of Springfield go about their Christmas days, to the tune of the Nutcracker. Moe attempts suicide, Marge struggles to make Christmas dinner and Homer frantically searches for Marge’s gift.

The episode will air on Sunday, December 18.

And while we're on the subject of holidays, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I'll return to blogging after the tryptophan-induced turkey hangover passes. Mmmm... turkey.
