"I never thought it would end this way. Gunned down by Santa Claus! Honestly, I didn't see it coming!"
"What do you do when you want the trees up?" "TREES UP!"
"Xmas Eve. Another pointless day where I accomplish nothing."
"I'll be back when you least expect it. NEXT XMAS!"
This is one of the funniest episodes af all, balanced out with a good Fry/Leela subplot.

I saw this episode for the first time last Christamas Eve, and of course it was brilliant. Cool twist with the whole Santa situation, the robotic Santa getting some brilliant lines, especially his response to Fry's offer to put out milk and cookies for him. How amusing to note that not even he can find fault with Dr Zoidberg!
The little English Dickens-style robot, Tinny Tim, was cool too (you gotta love that name!). I love the highly innocent way in which he talks, even when proposing to mug Fry and Leela! Also, the ending was really good, with clever new lyrics sung to a familiar festive tune, and Santa's warning over the closing credits was inspired. It won't ruin it for you if you haven't yet seen it.

Merry X-mas to all! The thing with the skying and Fry's problem with the trees gave me one of the laughs I ever had in this series! The atmosphere is very great! This Nudity- joke and a quite good Santa (thanks to J.Goodman for this cruel voice) make this episode worth earning 5 points.

Not nearly as good as the later Santa episode, (Which I saw first) but not awful either. The Santa moments were fun, but nothing really stood out.
