Suprised at the harsh rating for this one, it had a million throwbacks to old episodes long forgotten and a lot of laugh out loud moments. I just don't care for musical shows that much, so that subtracts a point for me. But other than the songs I thought it was great!

I thought this was an average episode. The Xmas segment ias okay, if rather rushed and with a sense of "been-there, done-that". I did enjoy the very brief inclusion of Dick Cheney as the late Agnew's replacement though...

Robanukah is by far the best segment, with plenty of good jokes and a good short storyline that actually works for the small length of time given to it. Al Gore's scene is, while forced, actually funny during this segment. The musical segment is also the most enjoyable of the three.

Kwanzaa starts out decent, with some funny Zoidberg and Petunia moments, but quickly becomes the worst segment when the Space Bees make a reappearance. This time, the crew can understand what they are saying, but the entire sequence is just jarring and not terribly entertaining. The musical segment is also not as strong as the previous two.

I personally don't have a problem at all with the non-canonical nature of this episode. I think the real problem with this episode is that they simply tried to cram too much into it. Perhaps if they didn't force a song, and Al Gore, into all three segments, it would have been a much stronger episode.

It is perfectly watchable and enjoyable, but it's also easily one of the weakest Futurama episodes.

Pathetic episode, watched with a friend and we were both embarassed how stupid this was, producers desperately trying to fit some xmas themes so hard that they missed the point completely. One of the worst episode(s) ever.

This episode was pretty great, except for the fact that the 3rd act needed a little rewriting, but the dark ending saved it from the krazy kwanza 3rd section, that and Coolio. Simply loved the Bender chapter though, that's why I'm giving this one a 4 star rating.

The netherlands-futurama fanclub is going to trash all merchandise articles, because this one was just pain in the as. Just useful as a hole in the head...
