It’s the holiday season and in the season of things I decided to construct a list of the top 11 funniest and memorable holiday moments from television.
11. The appearance of Santas Little Helper – The Simpsons
A pivital moment for the Simpson family and an important character that would lead to many many hilarious episodes.
10. Deb drops the Turkey – Everybody Loves Raymond
Ray points: “Dropped the turkey.”
9. Yankee Swap – The Office Xmas special SEo2
8. The best Chrismukka ever – The O.C. SE01 E13
With twice the power of any holiday Seth Cohan creates one of the most memorable super holidays in television history.
7. The Greatest Action Story ever told – Mad TV
6. The one with the Holiday Armadillo – Friends SE07 E10
Just brillian. It’s not in the clip but the best part of this scene is when Joey comes through the door in a Superman costume. “THE MACCABEES!”
5. Schweddy Balls – SNL
One of the most memorable SNL skits and Baldwins top 5 for sure.
4. Mr. Hanky the Holiday Poo – South Park
3.Clark Griswold’s boss rant – National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
Technically it’s not a television show but I figure it’s shown on TV every holiday so that counts.
“Hallalujah, HOLY SHIT. Where’s the Tylenol?”
2.Dick in a box – SNL Digital Short
1. Festivus – Seinfeld
Without a doubt the absolute best moment in holiday television history is Frank Costanzas creation of Festivus.
The Feats of Strength, the airing of grievances and the Festivus Pole makes Festivus a holiday that I almost want to participate in every year.
