Co-starring a pig, a sweltering man in a gorilla suit, magic beans, soiled Santa costumes, and a stalk of some sorts, Santa and The Ice Cream Bunny is one of the most popular RiffTrax titles of all time and a bonafide holiday classic.

Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill as they present it live on the big screen for the very first time!
