Yes/No: Do these shows have a ''Christmas Story'' episode?

A Christmas Story goes far beyond the classic movie title, as several television shows dubbed their holiday episodes that exact title or something similar.

As holiday traditions begin to form once again all across the nation, we are taking care of all of your classic TV Christmas programming, with A Very Merry MeTV schedule

Timeless holiday tropes, snow, Christmas trees and presents are all over our screens! Often times, a holiday was a great way for shows to take a side-step from a traditional episode and do something different to relate to viewers a little better during the holiday season. 

As a result, episode titles tend to lean into the holiday spirit too, with a very common one being some variation of "Christmas Story."

Below are several series that have holiday and Christmas episodes in their respective lineups. It's up to you to decide if "Christmas Story" is featured anywhere in one of those episodes! 

For this quiz, any title containing "Christmas Story" counts, whether other words come before or after! 

Good luck!

* That DRAGNET "A Christmas Story" was done in a 1950's B&W episode and was then remade in a 1960's color episode. Actually done twice!

5/10. Sign me up with those who misread/misunderstood the question but i don't think it would have made a difference for me.

8/10 Of course I did not read the story properly before I started answering. I thought they meant was there a Christmas episode. 🤪

Same here, but I don't think it would have made any difference for me.

You got 8 out of 10. Are you going to "Cheers" to this Christmas Story score?

All guesses. I missed #1 and #7. The only one I was confident about was "Wagon Train". I've only seen a person's name in their titles.

7/10! Missed 2, 8, & 9! And I should have gotten 8 since every Wagon Train is named for its main guest star!

On #6, Dragnet a "Christmas Story" episode, from season two referenced here is a remake (almost line for line and shot for shot) of "The Big Little Jesus" from season 3 of the 1950s "Dragnet" series. It even has some of the same guest stars in the same roles.
Yes, they both dealt with the theft of a Nativity scene!

Dragnet also did a radio version of the same story.
