About This Item
Written by Randy Brooks, the song was originally performed by the husband-and-wife duo of Elmo and Patsy Trigg Shropshire in In the lyrics, a grandmother is celebrating at a Christmas Eve party with her family when, while off her medication and drunk on spiked eggnog , she staggers outside into a snowstorm against the pleas of everyone in the room. She is found the next day, trampled; Santa Claus and his reindeer are determined to be the culprits when "incriminating Claus marks" are found on Grandma's back. The second and third verses describe the Christmas gathering where "all the family's dressed in black" to mourn her death and wonders if all the Christmas gifts they bought for her should be returned the consensus is a firm yes. Christmas dinner otherwise goes on as normal, with a centerpiece of roast goose , figgy pudding for dessert, and "blue and silver candles" to match Grandma's hairpiece; the newly widowed Grandpa seems completely unfazed by his wife's demise and spends the holiday " watching football , drinking beer and playing cards with Cousin Mel" who, while not stated as such in the lyrics, is an attractive and much younger woman in the music video and animated film.
The special was first released on home video in October, and then aired on The WB network on December 21st, The special begins by introducing Jake Spankenheimer and his family, most notably his grandmother, who owns a small general store in the town of Cityville. The store happens to be the only piece of property not owned by Austin Bucks, the wealthiest man in town, whose CEO corporation specializes in making Christmas easier and less involved for the town's busy residents. Grandma tells Austin that his method of trying to make Christmas easier is not really for the best and refuses to sell the store. This runs afoul of the gold-digging Cousin Mel, who plans to sell the store anyway. Jake and Grandma love the holiday season, though the rest of the family aren't as excited. Jake and his sister Daphne argue over Santa Claus ' existence, and their parents gently try to break the news to him that Santa is not real. Meanwhile, Cousin Mel comes up with a plan to sabotage Grandma's famous fruitcake recipe, secretly adding an ingredient with hopes that they won't sell, forcing Grandma to sell the store to Austin. Grandma, who hasn't taken her medication that evening, leaves the house with the fruitcake on Christmas Eve night as Santa's reindeer fly overhead.

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer Grandma got run over by a reindeer Walking home from our house Christmas eve You can say there's no such thing as Santa But as for me and Grandpa, we believe She'd been drinkin' too much egg nog And we'd begged her not to go But she'd left her medication So she stumbled out the door into the snow When they found her Christmas mornin' At the scene of the attack There were hoof prints on her forehead And incriminatin' Claus marks on her back Grandma got run over by a reindeer Walkin' home from our house Christmas eve You can say there's no such thing as Santa But as for me and Grandpa, we believe Now were all so proud of Grandpa He's been takin' this so well See him in there watchin' football Drinkin' beer and playin' cards with cousin Belle It's not Christmas without Grandma All the family's dressed in black And we just can't help but wonder Should we open up her gifts or send them back? Grandma got run over by a reindeer Walkin' home from our house Christmas eve You can say there's no such thing as Santa But as for me and Grandpa, we believe Now the goose is on the table And the pudding made of pig And a blue and silver candle That would just have matched the hair in Grandma's wig I've warned all my friends and neighbors Better watch out for yourselves They should never give a license To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves Grandma got run over by a reindeer Walkin' home from our house, Christmas eve You can say there's no such thing as Santa But as for me and Grandpa, we believe!
