Ugh I accidentally voted for the Holiday Spectacular, which is not only not the best Xmas episode but the worst episode over all. A Tale of Two Santas is the best in my opinion. The episode is high quality throughout but the fact that it has one of my favorite moments from the entire series pulls it ahead.

Poopenmeyer: "My God! The real Santa! Get him, Jesus!"

Zoidberg: "I help those who help themselves!" 

That sounds like Fry missing the button in ABPOG, so now we have two votes for Holiday Craptacular, this really won't do :nono:...

So based one what I posted, what part makes you think I did it on purpose?

Edited for context.

Cause everyone else was waiting for someone to purposely press it.

Voted for Holiday Craptacular? There was only one vote for it when I made my last post mere hours ago, and there are now two votes now after you saying "Ugh I accidentally voted for the Holiday Spectacular". It won't do no matter how it happened...

To be honest, that episode that shall not be named was so bad it doesn't even deserve to be in the poll voting at all! I think the two people who voted it probably misread the topic title as "Worst Xmas Episode" :laff:

I went with A Tale of Two Santas here. Bender taking over for Santa was great, and symbolic as John DiMaggio was literally taking over the role (John Goodman's) of Santa at the same time. The whole thing with Bender Santa being put on death row and into the electric chair gave this episode a bit of a nice dark feeling. I don't think any of the Xmas episodes were great, but ATOTS was very good.

I think the first Christmas episode was the best. Maybe because it was all so fresh and new when it aired.

I second the MadCapper's opinion. It is wise, and not very mad at all.

The first Xmas episode set the bar, and it set it high. It should be no surprise that of the other two, one squeaked under and one fell about as short as it possibly could.

I really enjoyed the Tale of Two Santas, however, I quite liked the Holiday Spectacular episode too, although a lot of people would say otherwise.

Off the top of my head, I would say that Tale of Two Santas had some funnier moments, but Xmas Story was more consistently amusing (as well as a cameo by Conan), so that gets my vote.

While "Xmas Story" is great, I love the dark tone of "A Tale of Two Santas." The whole episode is pretty brutal, but hilarious the whole way through. "Holiday Spectacular" is one of the few Futurama episodes I actively dislike. As for BBS Part 3, the segment itself is just decent, but I've been humming "This Toyshop's Going To War" for the past week since watching the movie, so it has that going for it
