Futurama on the list again. This time with the second Christmas special where the protagonists have to travel to Neptune to Robot Santa’s Christmas-base. When they trap Robot Santa Fry decides that they should have an old school Christmas and deliver presents to children like it has been tradition… only that the inhabitants of New New York are so scared of Santa they can’t imagine him being kind.

So when they capture the robot Bender (the “good Santa”) they decide to execute him.

The only way to save Santa is to get his good friend to aid him:

But there are powers not even Jesus can defeat – for example the real robot Santa. In a very thoughtful and uplifting message Futurama’s Jesus responds to the cries for help with “I help those who help themselves”, now isn’t that the pitch perfect Christian Christmas spirit.
