A Christmas 2012 clip from NBC’s “Community,” which returns in 2013

NBC’s Community doesn’t return to the TV airwaves until Feb. 7, 2013, so the sitcom’s fourth-season Christmas episode might seem a little out of season when it reaches a TV or computer screen near you.

So star Joel McHale is here before Christmas with a special message and a sneak peak at a holiday clip from that episode.

In this clip, Dean Pelton hands out presents to the study group. But, for some of you this isn’t a spoiler, but a gift to let you know that Chevy Chase gets nothing in this clip. He’s not even in it!

Want to know what is in the clip? Roll it.
