The real standout here is that full-length Christmas theme park special, Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny. The review is in the regular Rifftrax section, but since it's only available as Video On Demand, it seemed appropriate to mention it here as well. Shorts-wise, the best of this lot are a pair of animated courtesy films, A Good Eggsample and Courtesy Counts a Lot. Santa Claus' Punch and Judy and Unto the Least of These also deserve special mention, for horrible child-friendly racism and flagrant misappropriation of tax dollars, respectively. A handful of job training shorts rounds this section out, but are perhaps better avoided; shorts that aren't condescending and insane don't seem to bear riffing well.
