“Granny Got Run Over By a Reindeer”

Going home from Christmas Dinner in her One Horse Opened Sleigh, Granny got run over by a reindeer. Or did she? Maybe someone wanted the old cantankerous lady dead and made it look like she was pawed to death by a Rudolph wanna-be.

Join Fred Scrooge as he tries to solve the case. There are plenty of your favorite Christmas Story Characters who could have done it.  Maybe it was Bing Crossbow, Clark Griswold, Henry Potter, perhaps Ebenezer Scrooge, or even Ralphie?  Maybe he finally got that Red Rider BB gun he wanted. (Yule shoot your eye out!) We’ll find who did it before this Twas the Night Before Christmas is over.

And “Yes Virginia there is a killer!” It may be you!


Billionaire Seymour Butz is the victim of a homicide.  Minnie Butz, the widow, has followed his last request to have an “After Party” with family and friends.

Will the evidence show the killer to be Jim Shorts, Granny Fanny Butz, the matriarch of the family, or will Minnie Butz get pinched for the murder?  Follow CSI Gil Gristle as he questions the guests, gathers DNA samples and swabs for laughs to find the killer.

“Get Hitched to a Redneck or Die!”

Ma and Pa Red Neck are invitin’ all the kinfolk for vittles after the Weddin’ rehearsal of their son Bubba and fiancé Billie Jean. Cousins Gomer Pyle, The Duck Dynasty Clan, Dolly Parton,   Honey Boo Boo, Jeff Houndsworthy, Larry the  Fable Guy along with Jed Clampett and all his kin are coming.

The future in-laws, the Worthington Family, will be there too. They are all city folk, including Joe Pesky and Justine Carcerated. Ma and Pa think Bubba is working several jobs as a cook and paper delivery boy. He actually is an undercover agent for the DEA and FBI. Somebody at the gathering is the head honcho behind a drug cartel.  Will Bubba solve the case before he gets hitched or will it be a shot gun wedding?  Come and get served up a heaping helping of our hospitality, Red Neck Style.

“Lucy Goes Cruisin”

The year is 1951 and Ricky’s band from his club, Cope-With-Your-Banana Club, has been booked on a luxurious cruise ship. Lucy wants to renew their wedding vows on the voyage and be in the show, but Ricky won’t agree to either one.   Lucy realizes her wedding ring and jewelry has been stolen.  Is there a cat burglar on board?  With the help of Captain Ty Panik & Inspector Jacque Clewsew Rickey gets to the heart of the matter.  Will he renew their vows and find Lucy’s ring or will every thing sink?
