Oh ya!
I almost forgot Zoidberg was Jesus!
Is it too late to change my vote?

I'd always vote for a good old fashion...

It's not a picture of people enjoying themselves but generally just surviving.

But that's what makes it so funny!

I have to say my favorite part of both episodes is when they go skiing. All my threads have already been done. I think I'll only reply now.

I'd have to disagree, just the fact zoidberg is Jesus makes AToTS much funnier.  Also when santa yells at the elves while he's watching people telling them he gets new orleans on the tv and the singing number is hilarous.

Easily Xmas Story, ATOTS' song was a little catchy but the story line for it wasn't that good.


In my conclusion;

Xmas Story?  smile

ATOTS?   no no

p.s: i know that my signiture is from ATOTS but it was the only quote that i could think of.

Neptunians: Give us some food, we're starvin'
Fry: But you live in a gingerbread house!
Neptunian: Hey, its food or shelter, not both.

Xmas Story and AtoTS are two of my favorite Futurama episodes ever.   I think Xmas story edges it out though just because it seemed a little more witty and subdued then the all out mayhem of the 2nd.

Great episodes would of loved to of seen what they could of done with a 3rd.

They're both great episodes and both funny, but the skiing scene at the begining of 'X-Mas Story' was slightly better than Christberg.   tongue

ATOTS. "And i'm his friend jesus!" that line wins it instantly.

Plus, it led to these lines:

Mayor: "You people aren't Santa; you're not even robots.  How dare you lie in front of Jesus?"

and

Mayor: "Save us, Jesus!"
Zoidberg: "I help those who help themselves!"

I like Xmas story more. Naked chess rocks.. hehe. Also the Fry and Leela story is a nice touch. A Tale Of Two Santas is cool as well though.

The X-mas story,

Good news, everyone !

ATOTS for sure! What a great plot... Don't get me wrong, I'm all for shippy-ness, but nonscencical violence is just as good! The elves were great, the song was awesome, and Fry and Leela reading the letters was pretty funny. Plus, ATOTS has The HyperChicken!

"I'm sorry! I thought you was corn!"

I liked the ending better for some reason, too.

edit: And who could forget Zoidby as Jesus?

I'm literally angry with rage!

AToTS, because of Zoidberg as Jesus and Coolio as Kwanzaa-bot. "What the Hell is Kwanzaa?"

I'll just never get over "And I'm his friend Jesus!" so a Tale of Two Santas, it is.

I'm gonna go for X-mas story, mainly because of the line:
"i'm gonna deck the halls with your guts"
and the Fry n Leela story intwinned within the episode.   

Yeah, "shipper" alert init  smile

X-Mas story was a good place to start, but AToTS wins out in the end. The song, the great execution scene with zoidy and the random number generator... if only it had Goodman as Santa, it would have been perfect.

I think X-Mas Story is generally better, but seriously... What the hell is Kwanzaa?

Definitely "X-Mas Story".It had a deeper plot than "A Tale of Two Santas".I always like to think of this episode as a bit of foreshadowing for "Luck of The Fryrish" and "Leela's Homeworld".

Hmmm...I loved Fry's indecision with the parrot in the pet store. (Mostly because it reminds me of MY spaciness...) And also the classic "TOW missle" joke. Heheh...So, I'd say X-mas story. (But the fact that TO2S got that warning on Fox gives it points for me!)  big grin

I liked ATO2S and I liked the  XMas Story shows.The only thing wrong with ATO2S is there wasn't alot of Chrismas referancing.
Zoidberg was funny as Jesus!!!!  big grin   big grin

Xmas Story by far, better, funnier and original.
