"A Beavis and Butt-head Christmas" (also known as "Beavis and Butt-head Do Christmas") is the second Christmas special for the MTV animated series Beavis and Butt-head. It consists of two parodies of Christmas-themed stories starring the characters, along with additional segments. It originally aired on December 19th, 1995

Synopsis

"Huh Huh Humbug"

In this parody of A Christmas Carol, Beavis, now the Scrooge-like manager of Burger World, is visited by a trio of ghosts - Tom Anderson, Mr. Van Driessen and Coach Buzzcut - while trying to watch a porno. Butt-Head plays the Jacob Marley role, while Principal McVicker takes on the Bob Cratchit role as a Burger World employee.

"It's a Miserable Life"

In this parody of It's a Wonderful Life, Butt-Head (in the George Bailey role) is visited by his guardian angel Charlie (essentially a renamed Clarence), who shows him that everyone in Highland would have had a better life if he was never born, including Beavis (in a Mary Bailey-esque scenario).

"Letters to Santa Butt-Head"

Two separate segments, where "Santa Butt-Head" reads real letters mailed to him by fans, which were sent following advertisements during 1995 episodes of the series. Beavis played Santa Butt-Head's reindeer, and the target of his abuse, especially during letters meant for Beavis.

Availability

The special was made available on VHS on September 17, 1996, and was then released on DVD on October 1, 1997. This release also included four music videos (The Hoodoo Gurus' "The Little Drummer Boy", "Xmas In Hollis", "Zat You, Santa Claus?", and "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)") and some of the "Season's Greetings" yule log segments from A Very Special Christmas With Beavis and Butt-head, though the "Letters to Santa Butt-Head" segment was shortened with two removed letters (the letter sent from jail, and the letter about Beavis' mom). This release was later reissued on DVD by Time-Life in 2002 under their The Best of Beavis & Butt-Head banner, alongside the series' Halloween special, "Bungholio: Lord of the Harvest".

The special was later included on the Beavis and Butt-head: The Mike Judge Collection, Volume 3 DVD set, released by Paramount Home Entertainment on August 1, 2006, though the "Letters to Santa Butt-Head" and "Seasons's Greetings" segments are included separately from the main episodes on the bonus feature disc. In this release, the two missing "Letters to Santa Butt-Head" letters are restored.
