Christmas just isn’t Christmas without the classic TV specials, movies, and animated programs that we’ve come to know and love. Do you watch NBC’s Community? Community gets into the holiday spirit with their Christmas episode this Thursday, Dec. 9. In this special stop-motion animation episode, the meaning of Christmas is lost and Abed’s intense fixation on Christmas concerns the group. When Abed (Danny Pudi) wakes up in stop-motion animation, he takes it as a sign that he and the group must re-discover the meaning of Christmas. Meanwhile, Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta (Gillian Jacobs) become growingly concerned about Abed’s mental health and enlist the help of Professor Duncan (John Oliver). The group undergoes hypnosis to explore Abed’s winter wonderland and soon unravel the truth behind Abed’s madness. Chevy Chase, Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover, and Ken Jeong also star.
If you aren’t familiar with stop-motion animation, it was one of the first “special effects” techniques ever invented. It was used in the movie Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, and continues to be used today in commercials.
Watch tomorrow, December 9 at 8pm (EST) to see what Abed learns is the meaning of Christmas! This is a really cute special for Christmas! I enjoyed watching the show, and I think you’ll like it, too!
