The True Meaning
Read about the true meaning of Christmas, according to Linus van Pelt.
"’Twas the Day Before Christmas" is the first featured segment of the 50th produced episode of the Warner Bros. animated series Animaniacs, and the first Christmas-themed segment of the series. It was aired with "Jingle Boo", "The Great Wakkorotti: The Holiday Concert", and "Toy Shop Terror". As the title suggests, it is a parody of the classic poem The Night Before Christmas. It is Christmas Eve at Slappy Squirrel's tree, and her nephew Skippy is looking outside his window at the sky. Slappy comes in, telling him that he is supposed to be asleep right now. Skippy is too excited to sleep, and he asks his aunt to tell him a Christmas-themed bedtime story, handing her a nearby book - The Day Before Christmas. In the story (which is told in rhyme), it is Christmas Eve at the Warner Bros. Studio in Burbank, California, and Yakko, Wakko and Dot are preparing the Water Tower for Santa's arrival tonight. Over in his office, CEO Thaddeus Plotz has gathered the Warner siblings' Christmas presents from the studio and needs someone to deliver it to them. (more...)
