"The Night Court Before Christmas" is the third Christmas episode of the NBC sitcom Night Court, aired in the show's sixth season.


Buddy (John Astin) comes to visit Harry for the holidays and Roz is arrested for appropriating a sleigh full of toys and distributing them to needy children. After Buddy's friend "Nick", who lives at the same mental hospital as him, pulls off a handful of Christmas miracles, the court reaches the conclusion he must be the real Santa - promptly forgetting the mental patient who was the real one five seasons earlier.


The episode was made available on Warner Archive's Night Court: The Complete Sixth Season manufacture-on-demand DVD set, released on June 26, 2012.
