We were given the opportunity to preview the new episode of Community, which is a show we've grown to love. I really love Joel McHale, from "The Soup," and who doesn't love Chevy Chase. Yes-CHEVY CHASE is in this tv show!!
About the show: "Community," a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, "The Soup"), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group that eventually learns more about themselves than their course work.
Did I mention Chevy Chase is in this show??
In this special stop motion animation episode, the meaning of Christmas is lost and Abed's intense fixation on Christmas concerns the group.
I really loved the stop motion show. It's not something I would want to watch a lot of, but this just feels christmas-y, like the old Rudolf cartoon. I think you don't have to know the characters to enjoy the show, but knowing their personalities probably helped a little. But really, seeing Chevy Chase as a claymation teddy bear was worth watching regardless.

The new episode:
When Abed (Danny Pudi) wakes up in stop-motion animation, he takes it as a sign that he and the group must re-discover the meaning of Christmas. Meanwhile, Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta (Gillian Jacobs) become growingly concerned about Abed's mental health and enlist the help of Professor Duncan (John Oliver). The group undergoes hypnosis to explore Abed's winter wonderland and soon unravel the truth behind Abed’s madness. Chevy Chase, Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover, and Ken Jeong also star.
