PG | | Comedy, Family
A father vows to get his son a Turbo Man action figure for Christmas. However, every store is sold out of them, and he must travel all over town and compete with everybody else in order to find one.
A puppet was used for the close-up shot of the reindeer groaning when Howard punches it in the face, and again for the close-up shot of the reindeer burping when Howard gives it beer.
Filmed during the summer; during a long shot in the parade scene we can see the tops of two very green trees down a side street.
After the end credits, there is a brief heartwarming family scene, that ends with a question from Liz. She asks Howard what he got her for Christmas.
