"Santa Goes Downtown" is the first Christmas episode of the NBC sitcom Night Court, originally aired as the second episode of the show's first season. Ironically, its original air date came less than a month after Christmas.
The season is merry as Harry deals with a man in a red suit charged with trespassing and tries to restore the faith of a pair of cynical teenage runaways.
The lead runaway, a young scam artist, is played by the then-rising Michael J. Fox. While the "Santa" turns out to be a harmless escaped mental patient, there are distinct hints that he may in fact be the real thing.
The episode was made available on the Night Court: The Complete First Season DVD set, released by Warner Home Video on February 8, 2005.
