"Santa Goes Downtown" is the first Christmas episode of the NBC sitcom Night Court, aired in the show's first season. Ironically, its original airdate came less than a month after Christmas.


The season is merry as Harry deals with a man in a red suit charged with trespassing and tries to restore the faith of a pair of cynical teenage runaways.

The lead runaway, a young scam artist, is played by the then-rising Michael J. Fox. While the "Santa" turns out to be a harmless escaped mental patient, there are distinct hints that he may in fact be the real thing.
