We previously brought you the first photo from the upcoming animated episode of NBC’s “Community.” The show was produced using stop motion a la Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (the old school version). Over at NBC they’ve posted some behind the scenes video of the cast and crew hard at work for the Christmas themed show. They’ve also released a boatload of photos of the revamped characters. Look out for Chang, can you tell which one he is?

Official Synopsis:

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.

Have you found Chang out of this bunch? He’s the snow man! Look at his angry face. He’s always bitter and snotty about something. We can’t wait for this episode. If it’s anything like their other self-reflexive homages, this one’s going to be hilarious.

“Community” the Christmas episode airs December 9.

What do you think of the preview photos and behind the scenes video from Community? Do you think it will be a funny episode?
