In this hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, it’s Christmas in the third-smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including the hot competition in the annual Christmas lawn-display contest, won 14 times in a row by Vera Carp. A mysterious “Christmas Phantom”, known for vandalizing the yard displays, threatens to throw the contest into turmoil and has the contestants on edge.

Among the subplots are Stanley Bumiller’s attempts to end his probation and leave Tuna, Bertha Bumiller’s struggle to hold her family together at Christmastime, and Joe Bob Lipsey’s fight to mount successfully his production of A Christmas Carol despite the town controller of the electric company threatening to turn the lights off.

The movie is both an affectionate commentary and satire of small town, Southern life and attitudes. A Tuna Christmas is the second in a series of comedic movies set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas.
