As I mentioned in an earlier review, ‘The Simpsons’ has given us quite a few Christmas-related episodes over the past 20 years. Our review of last night’s episode is forthcoming, but I’ve recently discovered two ‘Simpsons’ Christmas rarities.
The first clip comes from a 1988 episode of ‘Tracy Ullman Show’, where the Simpsons got their start in short interstitial cartoons. Thanks to Joanna @ the Christmas TV Companion blog for finding this one!
The second clip is simply titled ‘The Simpsons Christmas Message’. This aired in the UK back in 2004. Gotta love the “British-centric” jokes and Homer’s Father Christmas suit.
