What "Green Christmas" by Stan Freberg says in roughly three minutes is spread to the length of this show. The children sing ditties like (to the tune of "Jingle Bells"),

"Every Commerce Day, We get lots and lots of stuff, No matter how much we get, It never is enough!"

Outside of Mac Davis singing a Christmas carol at the end, I recall (with resulting shivers and night sweats) Ted Knight, dressed as Santa, singing "Christmas isn't Christmas anymawwwww!

Between this and the "Star Wars Holiday Special" I am surprised I own a TV.
