"'Tis the 30th Season" is the fifteenth Christmas episode of The Simpsons, aired as part of the show's thirtieth season (hence the title). It premiered on FOX on December 9, 2018. This episode guest starred Jane Lynch as the voice of Jeanie.
After Thanksgiving dinner, Bart Simpson and Lisa gives Marge and Homer their present list, asking for a smart TV that costs $2,400. When a Black Friday offer is shown on TV at the Sprawl-Mart, Marge and Homer plan for Marge to hold a place in line, with Homer later relieving her and buying the TV. Marge camps out at Sprawl-Mart, but Homer fails to relieve her when his scarf is caught in the door, knocking him out. When the store opens, instead of grabbing the TV, she helps Gil Gunderson grab a present for his granddaughter. Gil then sells it for $100 to Reverend Lovejoy. Marge is stressed about preparing for Christmas, so Homer and the kids prepare a vacation for the family at the Kissimmee St. Nick Theme Park and Resort in Florida. In order to take her there, they have to sedate her. They arrive at the resort, but it was not what they expected. The theme park is even weirder, but they all try and show Marge they are enjoying themselves. In the morning, Bart and Lisa go and complain to the manager, Jeanie. Complaining about the fake appearance on the website, she explains that she cannot compete with the big ones like Disney's Family Guy World and blows them off. Back at the park, they go to the horrifying Tunnel of Love, the Gator Petting Zoo, and the Hall of Vice Presidents where they express their true feelings about the trip. To get their refund and go back home, Bart takes the heads off the anamatronic Vice-Presidents and leaves them under the covers of Jeanie's bed, frightening her. After finishing the fuel, they go on foot to town and discover Moe has been holding a dinner for the old and needy at his tavern. They join the dinner, along with Grampa Simpson. At the end, Jeanie refunds double the Simpson's money. They buy the smart TV they wanted and watch Yule Log in HD as the episode ends.
