Grandma Drove the Garbage Truck


For as long as anyone can remember, Grandma has run the town's garbage business. Her three sons drive the trucks. But what happens when her sons are too sick to work - and it's the 4th of July, the day of the Big Parade? Leave it to Grandma and her grandson, Billy to get the town clean. Together they embark on a hilarious romp through town - and create nearly as much mess as they clean up. Yet Grandma and Billy succeed in picking up everyone's trash - just in time for the parade!
