* JerkassHasAPoint: While Skinner was needlessly strict, he was also trying his best to keep the elementary school children safe. Even when he gets his comeuppance he's essentially proven right, because he manages to collapse Bart's snow tunnel using only a few quick jabs with a mop. Bart's plan of the children, Skinner and Willie using it to escape could easily have gone badly wrong.
* LeadIn: Homer watching a football show on television.

wrong ([[ZigZaggedTrope then again, Willie and the others say the tunnel is pretty firmly built and Skinner has to poke on it for a while with tools to destroy it, so if anything it just cements him even more as an unwitting tyrant]]).
* LeadIn: Homer watching a football show on television. He finally accepts going to the circus when Marge and Lisa's insistence makes him miss one of the hosts' zings, and he moans about how he will never be able to catch up with the rest of the narration.

** Principal Skinner told the students they'd watch a story about [[HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas a grinchy creature that almost stole Christmas]]. Then he showed "The Christmas that Almost Wasn't but Then Was."

* TheBore: Skinner refuses to shut down the school no matter what ''[[NonGivingUpSchoolGuy ever]]'' (even if that means forcing the students to risk getting killed because of the overly-icy roads and having to just sit around because there are no teachers), he picks the crappiest Christmas film in the history of the world to show during that time (he's the ''only'' one that shows anything other than pained boredom at seeing it) and he attempts to maintain control, even if that makes him a complete tyrant.



* InstantlyProvenWrong: When Bart moans that everyone is off except the students of Springfield Elementary, Marge denies that, saying that adults still have to go to work...only for Homer to come in happily saying that he doesn't have to go to the power plant thanks to the snow.

* StylisticSuck: InUniverse. ''[[ShowWithinAShow The Christmas That Almost Wasn't But Then Was]]'' is very much this, considering the reindeer are obviously cardboard cutouts, an elf appears onscreen for no reason other than to say he's happy, a stagehand appears onscreen, a sequence supposedly lasts two hours where a hobgoblin serenades a shepherdess, and the plot, despite the title, has almost nothing to actually do with Christmas. Unsurprisingly, it bores the kids to death.

* OhCrap[=/=]RuleOfThree: The kids shouted the first time when a snow storm got them stuck inside school, the second when they realized it'd make them miss Christmas, and the last and loudest when Principal Skinner announced his lame Christmas movie could be watched again.
