Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Principal Skinner. First, he keeps Springfield Elementary open despite every other school closing and all the teachers going on a ski trip, resulting in them being snowed in. Then, in his efforts to prevent anyone from ending up like his platoon in 'Nam, refused to let anyone leave even when they had the proper means to, becoming tyrannical. This reached its peak when actually demanded that the escape tunnel Bart had dug be ''caved in'', something even Willie felt was unnecessary. [[LaserGuidedKarma This act ended up biting him in the butt when he got trapped in the collapsing tunnel and as a result, lost control of the school]].
