Nine seasonal animated escapades with the yellow-skinned inhabitants of Springfield. In 'Simpsons Roasting On an Open Fire' (1989) Homer manages to fail as a department store Santa but comes up trumps with a Christmas gift for all the family. In 'Mr Plow' (1992) Homer's new snow-plow business has a rival and it is run by his best friend Barney. In 'Miracle on Evergreen Terrace' (1997) Bart lies about the burning down of the family's Christmas tree. 'Grift of the Magi' (1999) sees Bart wheelchair-bound and the school having to raise money to build a ramp. In 'She of Little Faith' (2001), father and son Simpson accidentally burn down the local church and Lisa becomes a Buddhist when the church sells advertising space in a bid to raise money for the re-build. In 'Homer vs Dignity' (2000), Mr Burns gives a cash-hungry Homer a promotion - but Homer is dismayed to discover that Burns wants him to be his clown and 'prank monkey', perform degrading stunts to keep him amused. Burns eventually fires him, and Homer ends up becoming a Santa in a department store. In 'Skinner's Sense of Snow' (2000), a blizzard traps Skinner and Groundskeeper Willie with an assortment of students at Springfield Elementary. When Homer and Flanders set out to rescue the kids, they get stranded in a snow bank. In 'Dude, Where's My Ranch?' (2003), the family go out carol singing - only to find out from a lawyer that the carol they are singing is copyrighted and they have to pay royalties on it. Unfazed, Homer decides to write his own carol. David Byrne lends his voice to the proceedings. Finally, in 'Tis the Fifteenth Season' (2003), Homer is given a valuable Joe DiMaggio rookie card and sells it for a large sum of money. After spending most of it on himself, Homer comes to repent his greedy ways while watching 'A Christmas Carol' on TV.
