The special centers around yet another member of the Blackadder linage; in this case shopkeeper Ebenezer Blackadder, who lives in London during the Victorian times and is known as "kindest and loveliest man in all England", but unfortunately this reputation leads to many of his acquittances and costumers constantly taking advantage of his kindness, leaving him in dire financial straits during Christmas.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: If you think the DVD version is safe, think again. The ''Blackadder Ultimate Edition'' DVD set has it cut. The good news is that Netflix (United States feed), the Region 1 (American) DVD version that's not the ''Blackadder Ultimate Edition'' DVD set, and the UK channel Gold have aired the original version.

Added DiffLines:

* IllNeverTellYouWhatImTellingYou: Albert is absolutely terrible at keeping his surprises a secret.


Added DiffLines:

* StepfordSmiler: Ebenezer Blackadder seems to inwardly be just as perceptive and sardonic as his ancestors, but his myopic insistence on being good and charitable for virtue's sake means that he tends to grin and bear it whenever other people are clearly taking advantage of him.

-->'''Spirit''': It points out a very clear lesson.
-->'''Ebenezer''': Namely?
-->'''Spirit''': Namely the rewards of virtue are largely spiritual, but all the better for it!
-->'''Ebenezer''': You don't think it points out the very clear lesson that bad guys have all the fun?!

* FanDisservice: Baldrick's attire in the far future.
-->'''Grand Admiral Blackadder''': For God's sake, Bladrick, if you're going to wear that ridiculous jock-strap, at least keep your legs together!



** Though given how easily everyone conned him back when he was nice, its unlikely he would've kept the money for long.

Added DiffLines:

* SnarkToSnarkCombat: As always with Melchett, as seen in the Elizabethan section.
-->'''Blackadder''': I trust Christmas brings you its traditional mix of good food and violent stomach cramp.
-->'''Melchett''': And compliments of the season to you, Blackadder. May the Yuletide log slip from your fire and burn your house down.

Blackadder, in contrast to the previous Blackadders ''and'' Ebenezer Scrooge, is an infinitely kindly man who often lets people take advantage of him because of this.

* SmarterThanYouLook: Subverted with Baldrick. He can't read, write or count, but he's smart enough to question Ebenezer's StupidGood behavior and points out that the freeloaders (especially the obese orphans) don't need what he gives them. He's also GenreSavvy enough to hide the turkey when they get visitors.

* {{Bowdlerization}}: Most versions of this special edit Baldrick's line about a dog being used as Jesus for the Nativity play to remove an additional line where Baldrick mentions the dog will be nailed to a cross for the Easter play. The earliest known case of this edit was on its first rerun in December 1989. The edited version has aired on UK terrestrial broadcasts on Christmas in the years 1998, 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2012.
