* AdultFear: Homer Simpson ends up with a terrifying problem. Marge has a jar with Christmas savings that enda up being spent removing a tattoo from Bart, and his own usual Christmas bonus was rescinded by his corrupt boss. Since he didn't want Marge to know about the money problems, Homer spent the rest of the episode in serious distress, working part-time jobs, cutting corners on gifts, and eventually was reduced to betting on a dog race to get enough money for a good Christmas for his family. However, the dog he bet on lost so bad that the owner disowned him, and the Simpsons got a new dog and a wonderful Christmas present.

* RealityEnsues: Homer spends what little money he has on the dog track in a last-ditch effort to afford Christmas gifts for the family. Homer ignores Barney's advice and chooses the last-minute addition, Santa's Little Helper, believing the name to be a sign of a Christmas miracle despite the dog's horrible track record. Ultimately, Santa's Little Helper comes dead last, the Christmas miracle doesn't happen, and Barney's pick ends up winning the race. And this is in the ''[[UnbuiltTrope very first episode]]!'' However, the family [[EarnYourHappyEnding gets a happy ending after all]] when the track owner fires Santa's Little Helper and the Simpsons get to take him home as a pet.
-->'''Bart''': It doesn't seem possible, but I guess TV has betrayed me.

** And it was eighth in production order (note how Santa's Little Helper isn't in half the season one episodes) because the actual first episode ("Some Enchanted Evening") had a lot of production problems to overcome in order to air.
