Santa's a Coder: Watch "The Christmas Computer Caper"

Posted on by Kara Luger in The Friday Funny

It’s a Computer Club Christmas!

In this late-1980s, very locally made TV atrocity from Seattle (rescued from obscurity by Everything Is Terrible), a kids’ computer class manages to get its codes mixed up with Santa’s computer list. Oh no! Requests for Thunderbikes are getting mixed up with weather reports! Whatever will Santa and his child labor, er, “elves,” do?

Don’t miss the kids pleading, “C’mon, computer!” while they work out the problem. We’ve all had days like that, people.

If you want to skip past the flashes of commercials for ’80s TV shows and Christmas specials featuring the California Raisins on ice skates (really), jump to 1:25.
