Reviews and Comments

From Justin Delbert :

If you thought nothing comes close to the first Xmas one, you're sadly mistaken. Like the first one, this is a very clever episode with Bender posing as Santa to try and restore the original Santa Claus that brings gifts but ends up being hated due to Robot Santa's reputation. "While there's nothing in the box, the message is clear: Play Santa again, and I'll KILL YOU next year!" Merry Xmas everybody!!!
