RiffTrax Live: Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny

Please choose a format above.

One of the strangest, most baffling Christmas movies ever made, Santa and The Ice Cream Bunny defies logic, reason, and we believe several laws of physics.

Santa’s sleigh is stuck on the beach, and only one creature can help him: The Ice Cream Bunny! Unfortunately, the fire truck that the Ice Cream Bunny drives needs repairs, so he’ll be a little late coming from Pirates World, the run down theme park that he lives in. We’d like to take this moment to remind you that, yes, this is a real movie that people actually made.

Never fear though, because Santa has a great story to pass the time: the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk! He'll recount to the nearby children how a Used Cow Salesman sells Jack a bag of magic beans, providing him with beanstalk-based travel to the clouds where he breaks into a Giant's castle and proceeds to steal back his stuff. The Giant is unable to react much beyond alternately eating, sleeping, and hunting for the source of a strange smell. (Hint: it's Jack.)

Filmed in front of a live audience at the historic Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, Mike, Kevin, and Bill are delighted to inflict, er, present it LIVE for the very first time!
