Yakko: Citizen Kaney...

Twas the Day Before Christmas


Written by Randy Rogel and Tom Ruegger
Directed by Rusty Mills

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha


Told to Skippy by Slappy, the cast of Animaniacs star in their interpretation of the Clement Moore poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas".

Good Idea, Bad Idea


Good Idea: Singing Christmas carols to your neighbors.

Bad Idea: Singing Christmas carols to your neighbors
on the Fourth of July.

Jingle Boo


Written by Deanna Oliver
Directed by Greg Reyna

Animation by Akom Film Production


Chicken Boo works as Santa Claus for a department store that gives out a requested toy by a conveyer belt. However, Colin (aka the Randy Beaman kid) knows that Santa is really a giant chicken, to which the manager chalks up as a kid's odd fear and points out that Chicken Boo is the best Santa they have ever had. In true fashion, an accident with the conveyer belt rips off Chicken Boo's costume. An enraged manager remarks that "maybe they let chickens work as Santa in Arkansas, but not in the big city", and promptly kicks Chicken Boo into the sky. The real Santa saves the day by swooping down to rescue him and gives Chicken Boo a happy ending by giving him a ride in his sleigh.

The Great Wakkorotti: The Holiday Concert


Written by Tom Ruegger
Directed by Jeffrey DeGrandis
Music adapted by Russell Brower

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha

The Great Wakkorotti returns to belch his way through "Jingle Bells".

Good Idea, Bad Idea


Good Idea: Finding Easter eggs on Easter morning.

Bad Idea: Finding Easter eggs on Christmas morning.

Toy Shop Terror


Written by Tom Minton
Directed by Jenny Lerew and Dave Marshall

Animation by Wang Film Production


To the music of Raymond Scott's "Powerhouse", the Warners run amok in a toy shop.


  • This marks the only use of "Powerhouse" in Animaniacs and all other Ruegger/Spielberg shows. All other times, a soundalike is used.

Yakko's Universe

A repeat of the classic song from episode 3 because of its wintry setting.
