"It's an Udderful Life" (also known as A Barnyard Christmas Special) is a half-hour Christmas-themed special of the Nickelodeon animated series Back at the Barnyard, originally aired on Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT. The title is a pun on the 1946 movie It's a Wonderful Life.

Synopsis

SPOILER: Plot details or story follow.

Otis the Cow, the leader of the Barnyard, convinces his college buddies Donner and Blitzen to stop by the barnyard on Christmas Eve. During the visit, Otis accidentally gives Santa a cup belonging to Freddy the Ferret, who is sick. When Santa comes down with Ferret Fever and can't finish his rounds in the county, which turns out to be his last stop on his Christmas Eve rounds, then Otis and the animals vow to make toys and deliver them by midnight to save Christmas. In a sideplot, Eugene Beady (also known as Snotty Boy) wants a Red Ryder BB taser in a nod to the 1983 holiday film A Christmas Story.

Spoilers end here.
