** A particularly good one that takes place out of continuity has Superman attempting to visiting an upset child dressed up like a Santa Claus-verison of himself. Batman shows up and chides Superman for acting childish and making himself look silly, which tarnishes his reputation as an icon for good. Superman reluctantly agrees ditches the costume, but still decides to leave all the gifts he was going to bring for the kid. But as he enters his house, the first thing he sees is Batman dressed up as Bat-Santa... he actually just wanted to hog all the glory for himself. Supes gets pretty pissed [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments and proceeds to smash Batman's face in]].

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' has plenty, although for some odd reason [[YouMeanXMas Free Country, USA celebrates Decemberween instead of Christmas]].
** HSR's first Christmas cartoon, the 2000 short "A Holiday Greeting", had Homestar interrupting Strong Bad's fractured rendition of "O Holy Night" before it got too sacrilegious and wishing the viewers "Happy Holidays".
** 2001 saw the release of "The Best Decemberween Ever". Homestar goes around looking for advice on finding the perfect gift for Strong Bad, and ends up giving him a DVD of ''Deep Impact''... [[MyNewGiftIsLame for the third year in a row]], because [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Strong Bad liked it so much the first time Homestar got it for him]].
** 2002's "A Decemberween Pageant" has Homestar and friends starring in a play about the First Decemberween. It's a convoluted and [[BadBadActing poorly-acted tale]] involving two Kobe Bryants, a sailor named Archibald, a Santa-like character known as "Doctor Christmas", an angel, and the King of Town (though it's a bit ambiguous as to whether it's [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld the KOT we know]] or a predecessor).
** 2004's ''Decemberween In July'' featured a collection of Decemberween-themed shorts, including a WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad cartoon where the girls draw names for a gift exchange... out of the belly of a lion, a kids' book called "That Time Of Year" defaced by Strong Bad, a short in which Puppet Homestar fools around with a battery-operated "Santaman" toy, and the nonsensical ''[[ShowWithinAShow Sweet Cuppin' Cakes]]'' Decemberween special [[WordSaladTitle "Cactus Coffee and the No Tell Motel"]].
** Also from 2004 was "Homestar Presents: Presents", where [[TheDitz Homestar]] forgets to do his holiday shopping until ''[[RidiculousProcrastinator 10 PM on Decemberween night]]''. He ends up [[ConvenienceStoreGiftShopping digging through a box of Bubs old "Aught-Four" crap]] for his shopping..
** The WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "what I want" has Strong Bad and Marzipan going over a list of terrible gift ideas.
** "Decemberween Short Shorts", released in 2006, was a series of extra-short cartoons themed around Decemberween, including Strong Bad having a secret love of tube socks, a scene between ornament versions of the main characters, The Homestar Runner's unsanitary old-timey traditions, and Homestar singing a song to inspire Coach Z to be less creepy so people will want him around on Decemberween.
** According to Strong Bad in 2007's "Happy Dethemberween", [[HonestJohnsDealership Bubs]] serves Santa duties as the enigmatic [[PaperThinDisguise Dethemberween Thnikkaman]].
--->'''Strong Bad:''' He's the Dethemberween Thnikkaman\\
And he'll make your dreams come true\\
No, there ain't no beatin' that holiday feelin'\\
When he says "shut up" to you!\\
'''Bubs/Dethemberween Thnikkaman:''' [[CatchPhrase Yeah, shut up, kid!]]
** In 2008's ''A Death-Defying Decemberween'', Homestar announces he's going to sled down the Steep Deep, not so much a hill as a straight drop, and Strong Bad catches him trying to bury a mattress at the base of the hill. Being Strong Bad, he removes the mattress, [[spoiler: only for Homestar to make a perfect landing anyway: turns out the mattress was full of hammers, broken glass and candy canes sucked into points, and Homestar was ''trying'' to maim himself to keep from having to visit [[GranolaGirl Marzipan's parents]]]].
** After a long hiatus, 2010 saw the release of "A Decemberween Mackerel", in which Marzipan and Homestar conspire to save an apparently-sickly Senor Cardgage by cramming him with holiday cheer.
