Different versions of Jingle Bells have been made.

"Batman smells"


This parody version, "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells", has been a well-known parody since at least the early 1970s, with many variations on the lyrics, usually those seen below.

Jingle bells, Batman smells
Robin laid an egg
The Batmobile
Lost a wheel
And the Joker got away!

In "Christmas With the Joker", the Joker himself sings the song during his escape from Arkham Asylum, adding in this extra verse while he's at it:

Crashing through the roof
In a one-horse open tree
Busting out I go
Laughing all the WHEE! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

As part of the Kids' WB! Kooky Karolfest in 1999, the Joker sang a new, slightly extended version of the song.

Joker: Jingle bells, Batman smells
Robin laid an egg
Batman bites
In his grey tights
Batgirl's got chubby legs!
Batgirl: Hey!
Joker: Jingle bells, Batdumb bells
Batjet's led astray
Lost a wheel
And Joker got away!
Batman: Not this time! [drops a cage on Joker]

Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas version

This version, featured in Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas, is sung by Santa's elves as they prepare for Christmas.

Jingle Bombs

This version of Jingle Bells is part of Achmed's terrorism from Jeff Dunham Very Special Christmas Special.

Magic School Bus version

Metal here, bottles there
Sort them in the bins
Broiler pans and soda cans
Just throw them all right in
Hey! Plastic jugs, margarine tubs
Pretty soon you’ll know
What goes into a magic bus
Ready? Here we go!
So melt that metal down
Pour it in the mold
Now we’re shaping something
New from something old. Ha ha ha!
Then we’ll melt some glass
Cause windows are a plus
When you want to re-create
Your favorite magic bus.
Oh, plastic now, this is how
We chop up what we choose
Melt it, cool it, now we’ve got
Some pellets we can use
Recycling’s fun, when we’re done
You’ll enjoy the view
Cause though it’s made from stuff that’s old
Our bus will be brand new!

Recess version


This version of the classic "Jingle Bells" song, based on the Disney animated series Recess, was first used in the end credits for the series' Christmas episode "Yes, Mikey, Santa Does Shave". It was performed by Robert Goulet, who provided Mikey's singing voice. It was later featured with visuals in the direct-to-video compilation film, Recess Christmas: Miracle on Third Street.

Oh, jingle bells, Prickly smells,
Menlow's such a drag.
The Ashley girls
flip their curls
And Finster is a hag.
Oh, jingle bells, Randall tells
Kindergartners scream.
What's that noise?
The Digger boys,
For lunch they ate some beans.
Oh, jingle bells, Christmas spells,
Two weeks off from school.
No more books,
Or lunch room crooks.
The holidays are cool!

It's a Pony Kind of Christmas

MLP Friendship is Magic - "Jingle Bells" Audio Track

A version of "Jingle Bells" is used in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic soundtrack It's A Pony Kind Of Christmas sung by Rainbow Dash. Instead of a song of two lovers off on a sweet ride through the snow, it tells of Rainbow Dash deciding to take a few of her friends on a ride, shanghaiing Rarity, Pinkie Pie and Applejack into flying with her, reaching speeds high enough to create another Sonic Rainboom.

(1, 2, ah-1, 2, 3, 4!)
Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O'er the hills we go
Laughing all the way (Ha! Ha! Ha!)
Bells on bobtails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to fly and sing
a sleighing song tonight, Oh!
Jingle Bells (Hey!), Jingle Bells (Hey!)
Jingle all the way (Hey! Hey!)
O, what fun it is to fly
In a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle Bells (Hey!), Jingle Bells (Hey!)
Jingle all the way (Hey! Hey!)
O, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh
Thought I grab some friends
and take them for a ride
Not so sure if I'd stop
As ponies run and hide
Put Rarity in the back
Right next to Pinkie Pie
Better buckle up, my friends,
We're about to fly!
(Repeat Chorus)
Go grab Applejack
She's hiding in the barn
Put her in the back
And leave behind the barn
The sky is clear and blue
And the wind is at our tails
Ponies better hold on tight
Because we're about to tip the scales!
Tomorrow is Christmas morning
Tomorrow is Christmas Day!
And Santa's comin' round that corner and he's bringing presents!
Because he's been filling up that-
Filling up that Santa's sleigh!
We start speeding up
As colors start to show
Streaming through our manes
The higher up we go
Even higher still
Faces fearing doom
What fun it is to fly and sing
as we Sonic Rainboom!
(Repeat Chorus)

Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving

This version of "Jingle Bells" is heard in the VeggieTales Christmas special, Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving, sung by Larry the Cucumber and a choir of children. It is used when Nicholas and Octavius sneak around Greece, giving sacks of gold to three girls who have to pay debts to the emperor, Gustav.

Dashing through the street
To do a noble deed
Determined in advance
To help the girls in need
Glad in spandex tights
Your sidekick's by your side
If you see a soldier,
You better run and hide.
Nicholas, Nicholas,
You are quite sight
Sneaking 'round the streets of Greece
To help the girls toni-ight
Nicholas, Nicholas,
You know how to live
You see one who has a need
And just like Christ, you give.
