During high school I worked at a video store. We got this direct-to-video turd one December and all I remember about it was a giant sticker plastered on the cover which read "BASED ON THE HIT SONG!"

Thanks, guys. Thanks for that.

2 frames per second is the ideal speed for quality animation.

FreeOJ - 2012-12-21

I agree the low frame rate really added to the enjoyment of this piece

dairyqueenlatifah - 2012-12-21

Agreed. It takes me back to the good old days when you downloaded pirated anime that was encoded in the Real Media format and the files were super small, which was achieved by the converter just dropping random frames here and there and thus you got a low spontaneous fps like this.

This cartoon reminds me of every watered down christian thing for kids from the Christian bookstore, that my foster mom would bring home. I remember watching this when it premiered. I snickered a bit when they had the nerve to change the lyrics for this cartoon, because god forbid children hear the words "drinkin' beer".

Well, I think the song always said drinking eggnog, but the joke is that most people spike their eggnog instead of drinking it straight from the jug.

dairyqueenlatifah - 2012-12-22

No, you're right, the song always said "she'd been drinking too much egg nog" in the first verse, but there's a line in the second verse:

"Now we're all so proud of grandpa,
He's been taking it so well,
See him in there watching football,
Drinkin' beer and playing cards with cousin Mel"

That's what I was referring to.

oh, okay! I thankfully have a very limited knowledge of the song.

I recommend doing what I did and just skipping to about 44:30

Isn't that the cop from Fargo at 45:06.

My mom actually bought me this on VHS instead of Toy Story 2.

Worst Christmas ever?

Binro the Heretic - 2012-12-21

How could they make a children's cartoon out of someone's grandmother being killed by Santa on Christmas Eve?



THA SUGAH RAIN - 2012-12-21

Not just grandma getting killed by santa. Grandma getting drunk while her dementia leads her to storm out of the house on christmas.

Binro the Heretic - 2012-12-21

And her husband's utter indifference to her death was icing on the cake.

It was such a delightfully dark song. How the fuck did it end up like this?

SPOILER: Grandma ain't dead in this one.
