I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus is a 2001 film based on the classic holiday song of the same name. The movie's tagline was "Christmas is coming, and Santa's a dirty rat." I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus first aired December 9, 2001, on the PAX Network where it aired until 2007. As of 2008, it is shown in the 25 Days of Christmas programming block on ABC Family.


Young Jenny Carver (Covey) was having Thanksgiving dinner with her family, only to end it with the news that her best friend Brenda (Hannelius) bickering parents finally decided that they were divorcing. But when she overhears her own parents, Stephanie and David Carver (Sellecca and Bernsen) having a heated argument, Jenny retreats to her bedroom. A few minutes later, Jenny peeks downstairs, only to see her mother Stephanie locked in a warm, romantic embrace with none other than Santa Claus (actually her dad in a Santa suit). He takes a photo, shows it to Brenda the next day, and then sends it to Mrs. Claus. Fueled by Brenda's own situation with her parents, Jenny jumps to the conclusion that her mother is having an affair with Santa. So he decides to behave as badly as possible in an attempt to prevent Santa from coming to his house on Christmas Eve night for her to at least make off with the girl's mother. The resulting hi-jinks include Jenny setting traps and throwing snowballs at a street Santa, and even getting himself in trouble at school. Then, on Christmas Eve, Jenny's mom receives a letter from the post office. Inside was the photo which didn't actually get sent. In the end, Jenny finds out that Santa was actually her dad and apologizes to the street Santa.
