SIMPSONS CHRISTMAS 2 is a collection of four episodes from the series, featuring the holiday exploits of America's favorite semi-functional family. In "Homer vs. Dignity," Bart's good astronomy grade inspires Homer to take the family out for dinner. Unfortunately, his credit card is denied, and Homer and Marge realize they're broke. Homer asks Mr. Burns for a raise, and he is promoted to a position in which he's charged with making the boss laugh; proceeding to become a clown, Homer loses all sense of dignity, but is eventually persuaded by Lisa to stand up for himself. After a huge snowstorm in "Skinner's Sense of Snow," the city of Springfield completely shuts down, with the exception of the elementary school, as Principal Skinner wants to maintain his perfect record. Things get out of hand when the school gets snowed in, and Bart leads a student uprising to take over the school. Meanwhile, Homer is en route to save the kids, but suffers hallucinations due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Next, Homer's attempt at writing an original Christmas carol devolves into an anti-Flanders song, which is made into a hit by David Byrne in "Dude Where's my Ranch?" The family takes a break from fame, going on vacation to a ranch out west, where Lisa is horrified by the treatment of animals and demands to leave. She changes her mind when she meets the like-minded Luke Stetson, and Homer reclaims land for indigenous people from a natural beaver dam. Finally, in "T'is the Fifteenth Season," Homer sells a Di Maggio baseball card given as a Christmas present to Bart by Mr. Burns, and with the money he buys himself a talking astrolabe. He has no money left over to buy a Christmas tree, and is ostracized by his family. Spending the night on the couch, he is inspired to generosity by "Mr. McGrew's Christmas Carol," but competition from Flanders eventually turns him into a Christmas-stealing Grinch.
