Sam & Max Nearly Save Christmas is a 20-minute machinima video produced by Telltale Games to promote Ice Station Santa (and their Sam & Max series in general). The plot largely follows that of Ice Station Santa, though much has been abbreviated or left out.

The following are the most significant ways in which the plot differs from that of Ice Station Santa.
- Maimtron 9000 doesn't appear. Instead, Sam and Max get a call from The Commissioner.
- Flint Paper, the Soda Poppers, Bosco, Sybil, Abe, The Bug and Stinky don't appear.
- The boxing match is now won by cheating.
- A commercial for Moai Better Blues is included halfway through the video.
- The Christmas Present problem is about Jimmy's suicide instead of The Bug.
- Christmas Yet to Come is "saved" by just a bag of chips.
- Most importantly: when Santa gets possessed at the end, Sam and Max leave instead of saving Christmas again.
