|“||Crime doesn't take a holiday, and neither do I.||”|
"Invasion of the Secret Santas!" is the Christmas-themed episode of the Warner Bros. animated television series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, originally broadcast on Cartoon Network on December 12, 2008.
Batman teams up with android superhero Red Tornado to take on the villainy of Fun Haus, whose weapons include armies of evil toys, not to mention a battalion of larcenous robotic Santas. Along the way, we learn the sad reason Batman never celebrates Christmas. It was on that day that a young and bratty Bruce Wayne, ungrateful over the toy he was given, caused his parents to decide to walk down the alleyway which led to their murders. Despite not being human, Red Tornado manages to help Batman to indulge in at least a little holiday cheer.
Warner Home Video made the episode available on home video for the first time on the Batman: The Brave and the Bold - Volume 1 DVD in 2009. It was later included on the Batman: The Brave and the Bold - Season 1, Part 1 DVD set in 2010. It was featured on the Batman: The Brave and the Bold manufacture-on-demand Blu-ray set, released by Warner Archive on November 5, 2013, and again on the DVD set of the same name, released on May 20, 2014.
