Horrid Henry's Christmas (episode) is the ninth episode in Series 1 and the 9th episode overall.


Christmas! Aaah! A time for goodwill for everybody! But Henry's Christmas get worse when Stuck-Up Steve and Rich Aunt Ruby comes to celebrate.


Horrid Henry and his family were at Toy Heaven. They were on a lift discussing about what they want for Christmas. When the family saw the toys, Henry gets on a train, but Mum and Dad tells him to get down. He finds a boom boom basher. Henry picks up the controller and activates the boom boom basher. It heads straight to the family, which made Peter yell, 'Noooo!!!', opening the title card.

He saw his best friend, Ralph, who wanted a galactic goo shooter, so he decided to get one too. Henry and Peter both told Santa what they wanted. Henry wanted a boom-boom basher. Peter gave Santa a present and said he wanted a dictionary, some seeds, a geometry kit, and stamps.

Later on, Stuck-Up Steve and Rich Aunt Ruby visit Henry's house on Christmas Eve. Henry is unhappy about this, as Steve is much richer, and has lots more toys than Henry does.

At 10 o'clock, Henry decides to sneak down to change two of the labels on the presents. As he gets up, he makes sure Steve is stuck to the bed, and cannot get up.

In the morning, Peter, Henry, and Steve were about to race down the stairs, when Steve loses his pyjamas due to the leg of the pants being stuck to Henry's bed, and he went flying down the stairs. Steve was embarrassed when Henry and Peter were laughing at him, as they found it funny, and he knew that Henry did that.

When they finally come down to open presents, all the cards had been mixed up, and no one, except Peter, gets the gift they had desired. They did not know what to do until Peter convinced them all that Santa Claus must have mixed the presents up.

Henry gets the thing he wanted most, despite being horrid. He fires everyone in goo who groan: 'Don't be horrid, Henry.'. He shouts to the audience 'Merry Christmas, everybody!' and fires goo all over the camera, ending the episode.

  • When Peter and his parents arrived at Santa's grotto, Peter is wearing mittens, but he didn't wear mittens in the beginning of the episode in Toy Heaven.
  • When Peter cries after having his ice sculpture broken by Henry and Steve, his lips don't move.
  • The labels on the presents appear to have already been muddled up before Henry switched them. The fax machine originally had a label with Steve's name on it despite Mum intending to give it to Dad. Although there may have been some implications that Dad swapped the labels before Henry did so that Steve got the fax machine instead of him, there is not enough evidence to say so.
