Carol of the Bells is a Christmas carol which was performed in an end tag of Community by the characters Dean Pelton, Ben Chang, Magnitude, Alex "Star-Burns" Osbourne and Leonard Rodriguez. They are all seen reflected on Christmas tree ornaments harmonizing the song with each speaking a signature word, phrase or sound. As the performance ends, a cat's paw is seen swatting at the decorations. The perfomance abruptly stops when Chang cries out after the cat knocks down his ornament and Pelton then closes out the song with another Dean pun. "Carol of the Bells" was first heard in the Season Three episode "Regional Holiday Music".

"Carol of the Bells" was composed by world renowned Ukranian composer and choral conductor Mykola Leontovych in 1904. It was based on an old Ukraninain folk chant called Shchedryk. It was later adapted into its current version by Peter J. Wilhousky who added the lyrics sometime in the 1930's.
