You can't have a franchise without a threequel. Yes, following our previous two Freaky Franchises episodes, it's time for a festive edition!

For this year's Two Geeks Christmas special, we're looking back at four festive film series that have gone on far longer than we realised. Whether it's just one sequel too many or a ridiculous number of remakes and adaptations, it's time to delve into the bonkers world of Christmas movie franchises.

Here, we tackle: Jingle All the Way, The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life.

We also discuss:

  • Larry the Cable Guy's franchise killing exploits
  • The Santa death rules of The Santa Clause
  • Would we give money to George Bailey?
  • The brilliance of Hallmark Christmas movies
