    Isn't it How The Grinch Stole Christmas? Ah, well. I love this constant stream of bum reviews!
  • anonexistentuser
    DO NOT QUESTION THE BUM'S REVIE-- Oh wait, you're right.
  • CJ-1
    I noticed the title, too!
  • Jigglysaint
    Oh wow another one. It's like Doug is pulling all these bum reviews out of his...nah, too easy.
  • SRanger1071  - Rankin-Bass, please
    I want to see what the Bum has to say about Santa Claus is Comin' to Town! Especially a scene sort of in the middle of the special, involving a song that comes right out of nowhere, has little to no bearing on the plot, has nothing to do with Christmas at all, is ridiculous even in the context of the special. and after it happens is never mentioned again.

    You mean a Big Lipped Alligator Moment?

    I don't think I've ever seen Sanata Claus is Comin' to Town actually.

    Guys, why are you harping about the title. This is CHESTER A. BUM we're talking about here. He believes one can live inside a tin can.

    But Bum, you forgot about the part where the Grinch makes the mayor kiss the dog's ass!

    The Grinch is my favourite Christmas special (don't get me started on that piece of shit by Ron Howard, that shares its name), and I still watch it with my family every year!

    After awhile, The Bum starts to sound like an owl. XD

    I'm really liking these Bum reviews for Christmas movies! I hope Chester can stay in the room after Christmas, though if Tommy Wiseau shows up, I would understand Chester wanting to get away from that French zombie freak.

    Why would you give someone a drink before they go to bed? Why would you be so... evil?

    As long as it's Boris Karloff and not that stupid wannabe Jim Carey.
  • Bloodrealm
    Hey, don't blame Jim Carrey, he was horribly miscast, and they wrote his character around that bad casting choice!

    Some reason i hope he does a Christmas story 2. just because is seems so bad that it would be fun to rip on

    Interesting interpretation. I like it. Especially about religion in Whoville and giant radioactive bubble.)

    Good review, but respectfully, Doug, even if you are an agnostic or atheist, those of us who are not do not appreciate you making fun of our God.
  • DarkBee

    Too bad for you, just deal with it; I thought the intro was hilarious and I like this take on the Bum reviews.
  • theseventhdoctor
    Religion is fair game for satire.

    I don't believe Doug/the Bum said anything untrue about religions except that Whos had them and that they had "Who" in the name.

    The only insulting thing I heard was him saying that religions sometimes persecuted people because they thought they had a better way of loving one another, which is true. Religions are supposed to be about peace and love (usually) but there have been many wars fought over religion, that's a historical fact.

    I agree. :)

    Wait, is Doug really agnostic or atheist? I sure as heck don't know. You learn something new everyday. One of my bestest (I know it's improper English) friend is an atheist and she is a lot nicer than some Christians I met. I also have some nice Christian friends tho, and my family is Catholic. I just gave up on religion because I hate the church's history and how political it is. I'll stick to being spiritual thank you very much. I don't need anyone, especially an outdated book, telling me what I should believe in. Still, I believe as long as you are happy and not hurting anyone, it's fine. I wasn't happy with my religion anymore and gave it up. Couldn't be happier.

    Its a comedy. If you can't deal with someone making light of your imaginary friend.


    Don't Watch it. God gave you the choice to avert your eyes.

    I didn't find the video offensive, but I do find a lot of your comments offensive. I don't understand why so many people think being mean to the guy who was offended will help him. It just lets him know that he was right to be offended, since people really do think badly of him.
  • Extreme-Madness  - re:trlkly

    You have the right to be offended by the comments of others. :-)

    Am I the only one who thinks the "new bum" sucks.

    It's obvious doug should just bring back the critic the bum is sort of turning into him anyway.
  • Zihon
    avatar
    this is like a new character, like linkara's morte, he want use the image, but this is like a christmass special only i think.
  • Bloodrealm
    I think Chester is acting this way because he's all Christmassy and warm and dry in the hotel room they got him. He'll be back to normal once he's home, whatever household object that may be at that time.

    The Bum to me has always been kind of lame.

    I always get confused,was it the Grinch or the Nerd who stole Xmas?

    And why weren't there any charges brought immediatly against The Grinch? Do the Whos even have a legal system? If they don't have any established law enforcement then by definition there is no Social Contract in place and The Grinch did not stole anything. he just appropiated the goods the Who's should've been minded in the first place. And serves them right,if you ask me. The Court rules in favor of the Defendant.

    Next case! :D

    The critic is dead let that be it, be happy he doing something inbetween Demo Reel and the show with Rob, you don't have to watch plus this content is free.
  • trlkly
    avatar
    No, it isn't. There are ads. And being free has nothing to do with whether you can complain. If it did, there wouldn't be comment sections on every video.

    The way Doug killed of the Critic really pissed off some of his fans. He deserves to be reminded of it. Next time, maybe he'll handle it better. There's absolutely no reason that ending the character's arc needed to result in so many people being angry and resentful. There's no reason he needed to poison his Demo Reel idea.

    You just don't make a surprise out of killing of a beloved character in your yearly comedy celebration. And you definitely don't do it because you are tired of doing a show. And you definitely don't continue to act like nothing happened. This was just handled really badly.

    And, as far as I know, Doug has yet to figure out that he made a mistake.

    a santa who?
  • themilo  - love the who puns.

    O come on we all know that the who’s celebrate the regeneration of the tenth doctor during Christmas.
    Wow that joke was easy.

    is the bum sober?
  • Mousy Voice

    I want to go to Whoville, only because I want to celebrate who-Christmas, eat some who-ham, and get a drink from Whooters.
  • Fiang
    "...Because he is a Whodist."

    That killed me right thar.
  • tomrule123
    "DON'T GO AWAY, CHRISTMAS! I WANNA STAY IN THIS ROOM"
    Love that line. The Bum needed a change in his signature lines... oh okay, here's my change. Damn the puns.

    This is my first Bum Christmas review. Sorry, I didn't see the other movies he reviewed; I didn't watch them since there tend to be spoilers. Anyway, I like this new style for Christmas. You have to review Christmas movies somehow, right Doug? :D I liked how Chester made up "Whoristianity"...the religion of the Whos. Makes sense. I mean Christmas is supposed to be about Jesus. And apparently Santa can visit snowflakes...Magic! But yeah, I loved your comments on religion. They were funny. And Chester's comment in the end made me laugh but also feel bad for him. :D: Hopefully the next review will be a movie I saw.
  • sirgreen  - The bum
    I have a question. Why is the bum different all of a sudden? He isn't hyper anymore. I enjoy, " This is the greatest movie ever!" Did i miss the explanation?
  • trlkly
    avatar
    I wondered that, too. It's not like Doug to go out-of-character or to discount character continuity--even when his fans didn't give a crap about it.
  • trlkly
    avatar
    None of my other comments mean I didn't enjoy this video, BTW. Just because the Bum apparently sobered up and got an education doesn't mean that what he said wasn't funny. It was just more intelligent humor.
  • TheomanZero
    My grandmother called it "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" once as a guess in Charades. It was strange because I'd already established the first word as "How".
  • tiffanybride
    avatar
    Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus, who came to earth to bring salvation to all, so the use of the name Jesus is offensive in jest. I get that Doug may be making a joke about all the "Who religions" that the Who have, and it might have been funny had he not made a pun on the name Jesus.

    With all due respect, this is the guy who invented Santa Christ we're talking about. You shouldn't be that surprised.
  • Extreme-Madness  - re:tiffanybride What about SantaChrist?
    avatar
    You have the right to be offended. Also, freedom of speech, you do not need always to like what others think about your faith, but you have no right to tell others what they can and can not "insult" (or to have a different opinion).
    But of course you have a right to disagree with them.

    And wait a minute, it's okay to do a joke about a fictional religion, as long as if does not allude to Christianity and Jesus?Interesting ...
