“Have A Merry Freakin’ Christmas!”

Now that this festive holiday season is in full swing, it’s time to trot out my favorite twisted nugget of animated seasonal merriment. The video below is a clip called “Raging Rudolph” from the first season of MADtv, and it’s a spoof of the traditional Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer stop-motion animated television special in the vein of several Martin Scorsese movies. Few things can be so completely wrong in so many ways and yet be so incredibly funny. As such, it is definitely not for little kids, unless you think you’ll have no problem explaining to your child why Santa’s severed head winds up placed on top of a Christmas tree by the Abominable Snowman. Don’t say I didn’t warn you . . .
