A Trash Truck Christmas special is a funny take on the traditional Christmas story.

Storyline. The movie begins with a spin-off of the traditional Christmas story. When Santa crash-landed in the local junkyard on Christmas eve, his helper, Boom (Jon Gries) along with other misfits are left to save the world. Along the way, they encounter the likes of the Tooth Fairy (Karen Allen), Mrs. Clause (Sandra Oh), Bo Peep (eful Alpert), the Care Bears, and much more.
Music. This movie is filled with Christmas music - both familiar and new. The theme song for the movie is "White Christmas" by the Chiffon Band and features the use of nature sounds such as running water and the snowflakes. For additional Christmas music, try listening to: "Silent Night" by Auld Lang Syne, "Jingle Bells" by The Royal Meters, "Let it Snow", "Jingle Bells" by White Christmas, "I am a Tree", "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" by Christmas Carousel, and "O Holy Night" by The Who.

Movies. There are some very touching and sentimental scenes in this movie. At the end of the movie, when Scrooge gets his Christmas present, there are several close-ups of animals just sitting around, talking and enjoying the Christmas season. During the commercial break, there is a shot of the snowman having his best Christmas ever, just enjoying his favorite drink. At the very end of the movie, when the trash truck arrives at the scene after Christmas Eve has passed, there are several angels with the gifts that Scrooge bought for his friends. It is a wonderful movie and a nice way to end the Christmas eve with.
