Storyline

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.

A Timeless Classic
25 December 2010 | by rjvandoelSee all my reviews

I'm not going to lie to you. It's not for everyone. What really got me into the movie where all the fun songs sprinkled throughout the movie. Is it cheesy? Yes. Is it poorly made with terrible voice acting and animation? Yes. Is it a movie with a great message? You bet. If you enjoy Christmas and the spirit behind it this movie is for you. If you don't you might get a good chuckle and the cheepins of the whole experience.

I started watching this back in 2000 and I was delighted when Cartoon Network started showing it during the Holidays round clock. Can't you see. We'll finally be. Jesus Christ superstar lock your car we're in Harlem baby I'm a loser.
