The poem:

The Rankin-Bass special:

  • "Weird Al" Effect: The 2000 South Park episode "A Very Crappy Christmas" parodies this special's plot, with the lead human characters creating a public display (the Spirit of Christmas short film) to bolster Christmas cheer, non-human characters (Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo and family) aiding the effort, and Kyle singing "Even A Miracle Needs A Hand", with his face even changing to Joshua Trundle's at one point. As Twas The Night Before Christmas hasn't been a regular sight on American TV during the holidays in recent years, the South Park episode has became better known to many fans, though the original special got a boost in airings on AMC in 2018.


How well does it match the trope?
