Bud and Sylvia Newman are Carol Newman-Calvin/Mrs. Claus' parents in The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.

Role in the film

Bud and Sylvia are invited to the North Pole after Carol expresses that she misses them since she became Mrs. Claus. Scott arrives in Chicago with the Sandman (under the nickname of "Sandy") to take them to the North Pole. After they begin arguing, the Sandman uses his magic to put them to sleep, and make the trip back easier.

Due to the "Secret of Santa", Bud and Sylvia are under the impression that they have arrived in Canada, rather than the North Pole. They are unaware of Scott and Carol's true identities, and simply believe Scott to be a toymaker.

After arriving, Bud and Sylvia meet Jack Frost, whom they are told is an actor portraying him in their winter show.
