Season’s Kneading: Listen to ‘A Very Grumpy Christmas’ from Lifetime’s Grumpy Cat movie


Most people believe the Christmas holiday season starts just after Thanksgiving, probably the morning of Black Friday. For us here at Vanya HQ, it starts tonight with the premiere of Grumpy Cat’s new Lifetime movie, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.

The soundtrack to the TV flick was unveiled a few weeks ago, and features previously released holiday songs from KT Tunstall, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, the Bird and The Bee, and the much-maligned Pomplamoose, who bring back one of their holiday Hyundai ad jingles from a few years ago.

But there is some new music, we think, courtesy of Seattle’s House Of Breaking Glass, including the movie’s (unofficial) theme song, “A Very Grumpy Christmas.” Listen to it below.


Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever stars Grumpy Cat, voiced by Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza, and premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on the East Coast.

Here’s the plot: “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever is a live-action movie that follows the infamous Grumpy Cat and her sour outlook on the holidays. Grumpy Cat lives in a shopping mall pet shop, and is the cat that never gets bought or adopted, until an unpopular 12-year-old girl named Chyrstal falls in love with the cat. The two develop a unique friendship because Chyrstal is the only one who can hear Grumpy talk. Ultimately, Grumpy Cat has to thwart a kidnapping of an expensive exotic dog she can’t stand and rescue Chyrstal after the mall closes at Christmas. In this irreverent comedy, will Grumpy Cat learn the true meaning of Christmas, or will it be in Grumpy’s words: ‘Worst. Christmas. Ever.'”

We’re sold.
