South Park - Woodland Critter Christmas (2004)

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, "Glory to the New Born King!"  From, "South Park's Woodland Critter Christmas"
 South Park - Woodland Critter Christmas (2004) - TV review plus screencaps:
Woodland Critter Christmas
One of several Christmas episodes produced by South Park, "Woodland Critter Christmas" starts off like a typical children's Christmas special.  The episode is narrated in a rhyming style, and the show's protagonist Stan is described as "The Boy in the Red Poof-Ball Hat."
Magical Woodland Creatures
Stan discovers a group of magical talking animals in the forest, decorating a Christmas tree.  The animals befriend Stan, and later ask for his help, and this is when the episode starts getting strange.  It seems that one of the Woodland Christmas Critters is pregnant, with nothing less than the "savior" of the animal kingdom, in a story that parallels that of the Virgin Mary being pregnant with the Son of God.
The Woodland Critters' Christmas Manger

Unfortunately for the Critters, this happens every Christmas, but the pregnant animal is always killed by an ominous mountain lion before the Critter can give birth to their savior.
The Menacing Mountain Lion Lurks in the Shadows
So, Stan reluctantly takes on the task of defeating the mountain lion in order to save the pregnant Woodland Critter.  Regrettably, after he does so, Stan discovers that the Woodland Critters are Satan worshipers, and that their "savior" is the Antichrist.  This is followed by various scenes featuring supernatural satanic powers, animal sacrifice, violence and murder, a sex orgy in pools of blood, and a trip to the abortion clinic.  In other words, good clean holiday fun for the whole family!
The Blood Orgy
Woodland Creature Christmas features the following Christmas elements:
  • Christmas music is sung.
  • A Christmas tree is decorated.
  • A nativity scene.
  • Snow.
  • Christmas presents.
  • Santa Claus.
Santa's Got a Boomstick
South Park's "Woodland Creature Christmas" is one of the rare Christmas specials to feature elements that appeal to both Christians and Devil worshipers, something that is far too rare in today's jaded modern world.  So gather your family around the TV and watch the special together, for Christmas memories that will last a lifetime.
