Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Another irreverent Christmas episode from South Park features the return of Mr. Hankey and Charles Manson. Kyle, Kenny, Stan, and Eric spend the holidays with Eric's grandparents, but the celebration goes awry when Uncle Howard escapes from prison, and Kyle is disillusioned to find that Mr. Hankey at the mall is a guy in a suit. Before it is all over, the boys learn about the true spirit of Christmas and Kenny is shot dead by a SWAT team. "Merry Christmas Charlie Manson!" first aired December 9, 1998, on Comedy Central.
