  1. Geez, I wonder just how much damage The Critic will do with his love for Christmas next year.

  2. Did anyone else get a Peridot vibe from that hilariously unexpected ending?

  3. Dude, I don’t care what you say… Get Smart is fucking great.

  4. Before anyone asks, Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout is a thing that exists.

  5. That “thanks” kinda spoiled things.


  7. The spoiler by thanking her and her using the wrong voice kinda ruined it for me.

  8. I was wondering what you’d do to top yourself. Love the Dr. Claw sketch. Well, loved the part at the end too. Yeah, I knew that was Cree Summer doing the voice. It was way too authentic! I actually have heard of this before.

    …..well, I know it’s just “lazy” but it bothers me. XD They’re all clones. Attack of the Elf Clones.

    “HO. HO. HO.” Yes, that was very amazing, I agree, Doug. Let us record Claw’s “Hohoho” and replace the audio in EVERY SANTA TOY THAT SAYS IT WITH HIS VERSION.

    OMG THAT ENDING. Fantastic. 😀 Five stars!!

    (she’s also the voice of Susie from Rugrats, right?)

    • The Real Silverstar

      “(she’s also the voice of Susie from Rugrats, right?)”

      And she voiced Elmyra from Tiny Toons and Dulcy the Dragon from Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kitana from Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm, and Foxy Love from Drawn Together, and She-Hulk from UPN’s Incredible Hulk cartoon, and she played Freddie on A Different World.

      -Stop me before I sub-reference again.

    • Cree Summer also voiced Storm on The Super Hero Squad Show as well as Lady MacBeth on Project GeeKeR, but only myself and my brother remember that show.

  10. I friggin’ love Cree Summer.

    Also I love that Doug was also a Get Smart fan.

    Holy shit, Cree Summers was actually in this review! I am squealing so much right now!

  12. CREE SUMMER!!!!!!!

  13. Whoa…that was just…really awesome. The hilarious opening skit of Doug destroying the world, the skit of Dr. Claw as Santa in the middle was hilarious, and the animated skit at the end was pretty badass. Not to mention seeing Penny’s original voice actress make a cameo! I don’t know how you manage to get these people to see you, Doug, but you sure are damn lucky!

    Doug-Christmas Commercials?

  15. I had no idea this existed. Also, that speech… wow. O.O

  16. I’m pretty sure the elves sang “Elfen”

  17. Also, I thought NC was done with the F-bomb in these episodes. Hearing Cree Summer curse as a fully animated Penny ruined it for me.

  18. DAMN! That’s elfing ridiculous! Anyway I’d watch a cartoon about Penny taking over the world.

  19. Cree Summers as Penny, the one person who would take over the world. My childhood is complete, albeit destroyed too but still complete.

  20. Here’s a great idea for a christmas special, “Segata Sanshiro Saves Christmas”

  21. Was Cree Summers trying to cosplay as Numbuh 5 or was that just a hilarious coincidence?

  22. I never saw this as a kid, but yeah…I think this came later than the series.

    I don’t think Doug was a very big Inspector Gadget fan. The tone is totally in line with the cartoon. Dr. Claw was too stupid to realize Inspector Gadget was a bumbling idiot…he was always fooled just like the police chief.

  23. This IS true 50 Shades of Santa!

  24. Penny… Penny?

    What can I do for your administration? No, seriously, you listed off your achievements and I’m fairly certain you can engineer a program to ably run, you know, the world for you. So, were there still a vote under your rule, you’d have mine.

  25. In… Inspector Gadget? Oh NO, not that utter twonk!

    This berk hurts my brain at the best of times, seeing him bumble around while his unappreciated niece fixes what is typically associated with Christmas is going to melt the poor organ. Welp, here goes.

  26. Neo-stalgia Fan 1

    Wow, you actually got THE Cree Summer to voice for this episode!? Damn, I wish our conventions attracted more big people like that.

  27. Obviously the good doctor and Santa were in a fierce legal battle over who gets to keep their hold on the “Claw” trademark. Duh.
