* One of StanFreberg's ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'' parodies involved Joe Friday taking a Scrooge-esque character named Grudge to the North Pole, to demonstrate to Grudge that Santa is real (despite there [[AintNoRule being no law]] that says one must believe in Santa). Once Grudge believes, he gets all the presents that were piling up for him during his time of non-belief.

It seems like an accident at first, but Integra figures out that Alucard planned this moment right after he takes responsibility for Christmas. Alucard demands she let him have his "''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' moment".

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has done this, to varying extents of actually saving the holiday, with its special Crimbo events. Since 2005 Crimbo has needed saving from, in various years, a workers' strike, a takeover by the Queen of Halloween, assimilation by the Crimborg, radiation-induced mutations, the Penguin Mafia, bland and inoffensive corporate culture, a candy trade embargo, a HumongousMecha, heavily-armed bears, rebellious robots, and a turf war between commie reindeer and hippie elves.
