'Twas the Nut Before Christmas is the ninety-second episode of King of the Hill. It was first aired on December 17, 2000. The episode was written by John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, and directed by Jeff Myers.

Synopsis

Bill opens a Christmas village in his yard for the holiday. Hank is relieved that Bill hasn't gone into another seasonal suicidal tailspin, as in "Pretty, Pretty Dresses." But Bill is so entranced by the magic of the holiday that he keeps it going long after Christmas is over.

His Christmas spirit gets the attention of a single mother with two children, which would be a fantasy come true for Bill. However, he also gets the attention of a teenage slacker who plays on Bill's emotions. Bill sees him as a "wayward waif" and a surrogate son. It's clear to everyone else that the youth is using Bill for money and alcohol; this leads to Bobby, Connie and Joseph getting buzzed in the bounce house Bill set up. Bill however, refuses to believe this. Bill eventually does come to his senses and convinces Wally, the slacker, that he's better off enlisting in the military than going to jail.

  • When Hank is confronting Bill about Wally, Bill's gloves are red in one frame and pink in the rest.
  • The episode's name is simular to The Powerpuff Girls, Twas the Fight Before Christmas.
