Fans of 'Community' will have to deal with a bit of head-scratching when the fourth season premieres on February 7, given that NBC's delay from the original October 19 premiere puts the critically-adored series' holiday episodes completely out of context. But while we'll have to wait until some time in the spring to celebrate Christmas with the Greendale Gang, NBC decided to give us a little gift with a quick clip from the 'Community' Christmas episode. Kittens and 'Die Hard' await inside!

'Community' season 4 will officially premiere on February 7, but you don't have to wait that long to enjoy the Christmas episode before it finally airs sometime in the spring. NBC and 'Community' star Joel McHale have presented us with a brief, albeit entertaining clip from the upcoming Christmas episode, in which the Dean presents gifts to his favored students. But why does Abed look like he's just been through the vents of Nakatomi plaza?

Elsewhere, we know that ‘Community’s fourth season will see the final appearances of Chevy Chase’s Pierce Hawthorne, ‘Seinfeld’ star Jason Alexander in a mysterious role, guest turns from Brie Larson, ‘Battlestar Galactica’ vet Tricia Helfer, ‘Bridesmaids’ star Matt Lucas, UK thespian Malcolm McDowell as the gang’s new history professor, and Hollywood icon James Brolin as Jeff (Joel McHale)’s father.
