Apologies for being a bit later today, I am not at work and had a lie-in!
In my search to find something musically equivalent to British Christmas standard fare, I discovered this, which seems to be from a Swedish TV show from 1990. It has a saxophone and made me think of Roy Wood.

Grandma Mouse does indeed sit rocking in an old potato…
Lasse Brandeby was a Swedish actor / comedian and creator of Kurt Olsson. He made many TV shows during the 80s and 90s, and you can see him briefly at the beginning and end of this video.
