25 DVDs of Christmas - Day 24. Clone High: Snowflake Day A Very Special Holiday Episode
If I were to compile a list of the most painfully short-lived shows in TV history Clone High, USA would be in my top 5. One of the best examples of the shows satirical brilliance came in the Christmas special that never got to air (available only on DVD).
In the world of clone high it's been decided that to avoid showcasing a specific religion holiday they should celebrate the politically correct Snowflake Day. Without a doubt the most ridiculous holiday in TV history. It involves a pirate with a candy cane for a hand, getting spices and doing a yearly cabbage patch dance.
My favorite moment involves a parody of the Rankin/Bass christmas specials involving Snowflake Jack (the pirate I mentioned earlier) making Santa Claus, King Kwanza and Dredialstein to walk the plank.
If you can find a copy of this series on DVD you should purchase it immediately.
