Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer

Synopsis: As if young Jake Spankenheimer doesn't have enough problems on Christmas Eve, he has to help his mom and dad prevent mean-spirited cousin Mel from taking ownership of the family store. When his grandmother gets lost in the cold in the midst of the confusion, Jake is sent out to find her, only to discover that she's become the victim of a rather unusual hit-and-run accident, and that Santa is real but not quite the sort of guy he was expecting.
Director(s): Phil Roman

Well, not yet, but thats why

I want to speak to your grandma.

Im sure she wants to see you.

But right now, grandma Elfen-heimer

is reading to the kids.

I heard about that.

Say, you wouldnt happen to have

an extra elf costume I could wear?

Nope, sorry. But theres a troll costume.

Well, grandma Elfenheimer.

Mr. Austin Troll Bucks.

I dont suppose youre dressed that way

to read Billy Goats Gruff to the kids.

No. I did it so youd listen

to my offer to buy your store.

Didnt help. Dont want to listen.

Ill pay a lot of money.


Youd be selling to the biggest

and the best.

Do you know why my company controls

every mall and sidewalk, Santa?

Because people are too busy

to think about Christmas.

With their cellular phones

and fax machines, e-mail

theyre never really away from work.

And you figure youre helping.

Yes. There wouldnt be a Cityville

Christmas without me.

Your store sits on the perfect place

to build the crown jewel of my empire.

Picture it:
Gifts delivered on

Christmas Eve by our new sleighmobile.

Isnt that what Santa does?

How cute. He still believes in

Santa Claus.

Jake, do you think

I should sell the store?

Are you kidding?

I love this place.

You with no store would be like

Christmas without Santa.

Well, there you have it

from the mouths of babes.

Surely youre not going to let Jake

make such a big decision.

Hes just a kid.

In case you change your mind.

Thank you.

And you can keep the troll costume.


Ive always loved a man in tights.

Grandma, do you realize

what you just did?

You let my fortune walk out the door!

That was my future!

I mean Jakes future

Money for college, travel to Italy,

world cruises, sports cars, jewels

Id tell you to put a cork in it,

you greedy money-grubber!
