Twas the Nut Before Christmas, is an episode of King of the Hill.
It is now christmas time in Arlen, and Bill is feeling sad after helping Hank hid Bobby's birthday gift. Hank takes Bill to the post office with him to cheer him up, but Bill notices he is not getting any mail and attempts to confront a posta worker about it. But the only letters that didn't get delivered were letters to Santa Clause, which are offered to people during Christmas time to make children happy. Bill accepts one from a boy named Matthew and sends him a trombone since the letter said he likes music.
Bill realizes he will get no credit for buying or sending a gift. But his depression soon goes away when he turns his front lawn into a Santa's Workshop which contains sleds, snow machines, presents and himself dressed as Santa. Parents are happy with this and Bill even gets a date with a single mom. But days later Christmas is passed and every one is taking their gifts down, but Bill is not ready and instead he adds a Santa Shaped Moon Bounce. He then goes a month still dressing like Santa Clause and having his house continues putting lights on his house, this scares the single mother, Marilyn, and she ditches him.
After ignoring more confrontations from his friends, Bill meets a man in his early 20's or possibly late teens, Wally, at the Laundry Matt.

Bill tells Hank that it was a gift from Wally, but it turns out it had the exact same serial number as Hanks. Bill tries to talk to Wally about his bad behavior, bur Wally takes it the wrong way, runs away and steals Bill's car and credit card. Bill is now depressed and sad, but then receives a phone call from Wally, who is now in jail for stealing Bill's car. Bill rushes into Hankes house and admits he was wrong about Wally. Hank reluctantly takes Bill to the police station to help bail Wally out. After hearing about the stuff Wally did, Bill has no option but to find out a punishment for him. Instead of sending Wally to Jail, Bill shaves Wally's head and forces him to join the army.
Wally: "Nice pool, how about we jump in and see what floats?"
Luanne: "Just keep your beer cans on your own lawn…and stop trying to read my t-shirt."
Hank: Bill we are trying to raise kids here, good kids who don't try to kill you in your sleep, kids like Bobby
Bill: "Wally would never kill me in my sleep, he even told me that…that kind of communication is very important in a father-son style relationship."
Bobby: "HEY DAD I LIKE BEER!!!!! (Vomits)
Bill: "You won't like this now soldier, but you will thank me later."
Wally: "For what, making me a jarhead?"
Bill: "No for convincing the judge that the army is a better place for you than prison…oh soldier your not a Jarhead that's the Marine Corps.… You're a Grunt…and Bobby if you get caught drinking again it will be your ass in this chair won't it Hank?"
Hank: "Yes, it will.… Now lets shave that thing off Wally's chin."
