Countdown to Christmas #13: Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics

"Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics" is a Christmas album released in conjunction with the South Park episode of the same name. Like most of South Park, the songs (some original, some covers of classic Christmas songs) are crass, offensive and hilarious.


Amongst my favorites on the album are Cartman's hilariously incorrect version of "O Holy Night" ("the night when I get presents"), "Christmastime in Hell" and "Swiss Colony Beef Log", one of my favorite Christmas songs ever.

(NSFW or sensitive ears, obviously).

  3. I agree with Sarah. And this is actually something I'm familiar with when it comes to South Park. I've only seen about a dozen episodes all the way through I think.

    Yeah, that is a pretty good rule of thumb.

    @Hannah: Time to Netflix! Or borrow some seasons from me.

  7. Hoo-boy! LOL! Don't tell anyone, but ever since LOST ended, South Park is my favorite TV show. We have the complete works of Matt and Trey in our DVD collection, yet somehow I don't remember these two songs. Thanks so much for sharing these!

    You're welcome! Both of those songs are exclusive to the album, so they haven't appeared on any of the episodes, so you've probably never heard them before.

Comment. Please. Love it? Hate it? Am mildly indifferent to it? Let us know!
