While the idea of an omniscient fat man who sneaks into your house in the night to deliver toys or coal might be a little creepy, at least we can take comfort that our Santa isn’t a homicidal killing machine ala Futurama. Then again, were that the case then we’d have the chance at having a Bender Santa, which would be pretty awesome.
This clip from the second Futurama X-Mas episode has Bender and the gang defeating the evil Santa (John Goodman) and attempting to bring back the yuletide spirit of old. Through the power of song, no less. This episode also has the brilliant scene with Dr. Zoidberg bursting into the courtroom where a captured Bender is on trial for being Santa and declaring ‘And I’m his friend, Jesus!’.
