"Billy & Mandy Save Christmas" is a two-part episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.
'Twas the night before Christmas, Santa'd not yet departed
His sleigh was tricked out and his reindeer had farted
His belly was swollen, his beard was bone white
The elves were wound up on sugar delights
He checked his list to see who'd been good
And they'll get their reward as good children should
But there are some who aren't jolly, some who aren't nice
And Santa makes sure that they pay the price
'Twas a dark night before Christmas as children lay sleeping
'Twas the perfect time for some holiday reaping!
It's Christmas in Endsville, and Billy dragged Grim and Mandy to see Santa Claus at the Endsville mall. When they get there, they find out it isn't really Santa, but Mr. Skarr instead. Mandy tells Billy that there really isn't any Santa. So Grim goes to the north pole to prove it to Mandy. But when they get there, they have a much bigger problem on their hands...
Santa Claus has been bitten by a vampire, and the must find the head vampire to return him to normal. But the head vampire isn't what they were looking for. So Mandy, Grim and their new ally, the head vampire, Baron Von Ghoulish, went to eliminate the Head Head-Vampire, Mrs. Claus.
