“Stay honest, stay alert, and for the love of God… stay between the gumdrops.”

Sound like your kind of Christmas? Combining traditional Christmas favorites of stop-motion or clay animation and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with new favorites like Abed’s “disturbing fascination with Christmas” and clay look-a-likes of Greendale’s wonkiest study group, and you get the idea writers concocted for major network  NBC’s “Community” episode. The quote is from Abed as he introduces the Winter Wonderland, which will “test their commitment to Christmas.”

Stay tuned on December 9th as the episode premieres at 8/7C.

Entertainment Weekly is offering some featurettes from Chevy Chase (“the old white guy”) and Joel McHale (“the cool Jeff Winger”) and NBC has four mini episodes on their site as well, titled “Joel on Jeff-in-a-Box,”Journey through Winter Wonderland,” “Danny’s Dream Come True,” and “Chevy’s Take on McHale.”
