The Robot Santa is a classic character. While the episode is slow in its first half, it makes up for it in the second half with its fast-paced story of both Fry finding his parrot and the Robot Santa's attacks.

Hehe. Great ep! Too bad the reset button was pushed on Leela after this or she probobly would be dating Fry. Grr! I have to say, I'm a shameless shipper of Fry+Leela. they just belong together! ARRRRGH!!!!! Anywho, I love all the bits on Evil Santa! "Oh God! He doesn't know about Santa!" Then Fry replies: "I know about Santa..." LoL! I also like: "Uh, your present may need some assembling." Brilliant! oh and "Leela! You saved my life! I am gonna get you SO many lizards!" lol lol lol! Superb! Still not my fave, I don't think ANYTHING could possibly top "The Sting" but a wonderful ep.

By the way, the song at the end: GOLD! loved this ep! And after Fry risks his life to get Leela a presant she STILL isn't dating him. sigh, some things just don't make sence in this world of ours (and the animated Si-Fi world)

Magnificent episode! Matt Greoning, I tip my hat to you... just let me find it and put it on first.

As far as Christmas episodes go, this could be a lot worse, but the plot and humour are just a little below Futurama's usual standard and I guess I'm the only person in the world who doesn't think John Goodman is the funniest thing in the world.

One of my all-time favorite episodes. "You're lonely, and I'm lonely--but together, we're lonely together" is not only one of my favorite lines in the series, but also such a bittersweet way of describing the losses both Fry and Leela have endured. This episode has a lot of heart, *and* it brings the funny. What more could you ask for?
