'Community' season 5 is frighteningly close at hand by its January 2 premiere, but what would the holidays be without the Greendale gang? Check out a new animated special of the 'Community' gang reuniting just in time to save Jeff's Christmas for a "Miracle on Jeff's Street!"

As first debuted by TVGuide, the latest 'Community' season 5 preview takes the animated approach of the prior "Abed's Master Key," given that anything recreating "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" would have taken entirely too long. Meanwhile, near of the entire gang pops up to give Jeff some needed cheer, albeit two famous members of the cast seem to have been understandable unable to voice their characters.

In addition to ‘Arrested Development‘ star David Cross‘ guest turn as the onscreen son of Jonathan Banks, ‘Community’ season 5 will also see ‘Arrested’ creator Mitch Hurwitz guesting as a popular Greendale student, ‘Breaking Bad’ creator Vince Gilligan as “a smooth-talking gold digger,” Nathan Fillion guest starring as a mysterious janitor, ‘Justified”s Walton Goggins as a private investigator, Chris Elliott as Greendale’s estranged founder, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim as associates of Dean Pelton, along with returns from Rob Corddry, Brie Larson, LeVar Burton and John Oliver’s Professor Duncan.

Celebrate Christmas with the 'Community' gang above, and give us your predictions for the January 2 premiere!
