A Scooby-Doo Christmas, produced by Warner Bros. Animation, follows the
Scooby Gang as they stumble upon the quaint town of Winter Hollow.
They quickly discover that strangers are not welcome and Christmas is not
discussed due to a ghostly headless snowman who appears every Yuletide
to destroy people's houses, along with their holiday joy. To Shaggy
and Scooby's dismay, Fred, Daphne and Velma decide to spend a chilling
Christmas Eve at the local inn to solve the mystery of the snowman and
bring the spirit of Christmas back to Winter Hollow.

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer, loosely based on the 1979 song with
music and lyrics by Randy Brooks, is a goofy and heartwarming holiday
escapade. Young Jake Spankenheimer's beloved Grandma goes missing on
Christmas Eve. To the disbelief of his doting parents, rebellious sister
and fun-loving Grandpa, Jake sets out on the quest of a lifetime - to
save the family store from his conniving, greedy cousin Mel, track down
Grandma...and prove that Santa Claus is indeed real.
