A cynical tax cheat is forced to teach fifth-graders to pay off his debt to the IRS and discovers he has more in common with his smart-aleck students than his faculty peers. This was another failed effort to tailor a sitcom to Dabney Coleman's surly persona, and an artistic lapse compared to his previous shows, 'Buffalo Bill' and 'The Slap Maxwell Story.'

One of the most popular novelty songs of recent memory forms the basis of this animated holiday-themed comedy. 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 (voice of Michele Lee) 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. Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer was directed by Phil Roman, who previously helmed several of the Peanuts TV specials in the 1970s and was a producer for the TV series King of the Hill and The Critic. Elmo Shropshire, who as one-half of Elmo and Pasty recorded the hit version of the song, narrates the story and contributes new songs for the soundtrack.
A satire following vacationing guests and employees at an exclusive Hawaiian resort over the course of a week, but with each passing day, a darker complexity emerges in these picture-perfect travelers, the hotel's cheerful staff and the idyllic locale itself.
