Intro: The three ghosts! (Lisa: Past, Barney: Present, Burns: Future)

Couch Gag: Burns summons the Christmas Hounds! Great.

Hey, it's Krusty's daughter we forgot about for about 16 years! And after all this time, Krusty is STILL a bad father one week out of the year. Speaking of recycled themes: Itchy & Scratchy getting sanitized (with bonus Poochie), the Psycho violin fakeout (The Springfield Files), and the joke about getting 20 seconds of room tone (the ep with Colbert). This was less of a straight story and just a collection of scenes.

Yeah, it's about time this show tackled Elf on A Shelf and it was appropriately creepy. Even Wayne Gretzky can't stand up to a gnome with a gun. I liked the name "Narc in The Park," I wish we saw that one.

Man, everyone's sounding old it was distractig: Julie Kavner, Harry Shearer, Jackie Mason, whoever was playing Sophie now. It was Natasha Lyonne, so pretty much the opposite of Drew Barrymore.

I really did enjoy that the Christmas Hounds had little antlers on them. So festive for Burns to do it. 

 

As with this story, I prefer the Elf on the Shelf  and also that Maggie went full Fargo on both of them (and why would Marge need a paper slicer?)

Complete with Krusty's Custody Calendar -- did Krusty say that he gets Sophie one week a year ?  It would have been even funnier if it was Krusty's Kustody Kalendar.  Just saying.  I liked that the balloon Bart had in the hospital was a Krusty Get Well balloon.

Phone-Henge -- Hah !!  Ba'al Pit -- that was good too.

Why was there an ice sculpture of Stevie Nicks in Jack Frost's Ice Garden ?  

Sign at Springfield Hospital: The Perfect Christmas Gift ? Your Organs !

Krusty's source for elephant pain killers was none other than Dr. Nick Riviera (per the business card he gave to the nurse).

Thank you for the list of Advent calendar images! Even though I paused the dvr a few times I missed a few. Enjoyed this ep more than I thought I would especially Mr. Burns' Christmas hounds and their adorbs reindeer antlers. 

Loved Maggie ridding herself of all of those creepy Elves on the Shelf first via paper cutter and then via lawn mower. That's my girl!

My cousins do elf on the shelf with their kids and I just don't get it. I think it's creepy and kind of mean. So, I'm glad they tackled it. The Gnome sounded just like the Robot Devil from Futurama so that was a bit distracting for me.

I guess Drew Barrymore wasn't available to reprise her role? That seemed odd to me. Between the Gnome, Lovejoy and Krusty, this episode felt a little too busy.

And I admit to being a Judaism dunce, but who was sitting next to God at the end?  I thought both religions had the same God.
