In the series' only Christmas-themed episode; Boss Hogg, who is in an Ebenezer Scrooge-like mood, hires a trio of criminals named Willie (Woody Strode), Russ (Brian Libby), and Hank (Roger Pancake) to hijack a truckload of already-paid-for Christmas trees that Bo and Luke are bringing to Hazzard for needy families, and then pin the blame on the Dukes. The scheme involves Russ and Hank stealing the trees from Bo and Luke at gunpoint, then Willie disguised as a clergyman giving Bo and Luke a lift into town, and then telling them they forgot "their" $500 down payment on the trees. With the town beginning to turn against the Dukes, the Dukes and Cooter race to find the trees and return Hazzard's Christmas spirit. Willie and his two men plot to double-cross Boss by taking more than their payment due on the trees, by breaking into the safe at the Boar's Nest while each one is dressed as Santa Claus. Bo and Luke, with some help from Cooter, decide to take back the trees and have a little fun confusing Rosco and Cletus while delivering the trees dressed as Santa Clauses. It takes a turn toward forgiveness and fellowship as the Dukes and Cooter invite Rosco and Cletus to their Christmas Eve gathering. Boss comes in later, reformed after having read Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
The episode was made available on The Dukes of Hazzard: The Complete Third Season DVD set, released by Warner Home Video on May 31, 2005.
