To Grandmother's House We Go is a 1992 television film starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. It debuted on ABC with unexpected success, mostly because of the already-growing popularity of the "Olsen Twins."



It premiered on ABC as a special holiday film in December 1992; it was a ratings smash hit, due to the Olsen twins' already skyrocketing popularity among American audiences outside of their Full House fame. It tells a story of young twin sisters who are going on an adventure to visit their grandmother. Unfortunately, the girls are kidnapped on their way by two people who claim to be "Santa's helpers". The girls eventually find out that they are really two crooks who are kidnapping them for ransom. Cynthia Geary plays the girls' mother, and Jerry Van Dyke and Rhea Perlman also co-star as the two goofy bandits on the run who get involved in the girls' adventure.

Bob Saget and Lori Loughlin have cameos in the film as hosts of a local lottery game show. While chosen to appear in the film because of their co-starring on Full House with the Olsen twins, their appearance was also ironic since Saget and Loughlin's Full House characters also hosted a TV program together. Candace Cameron can be seen in the audience of the game show.
