Gus Polinski (John Candy) is the shuttle chief of this midwest polka band from Home Alone (1990). He accidentally left his kid alone overnight at a funeral parlor, so Kate McCallister (Catherine O'Hara) doesn't feel quite so bad about accidentally leaving her kid Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) behind on a family Christmas trip, as she rides with the band to get back home.

The rest of the band was played by real polka band Eddie Korosa and the Boys: Edward Bruzan, Frank Cernugel, Eddie Korosa, John Hardy, Robert Okrzesik, Leo Perion, and Vince Waidzulis.

Trivia Time! Those of you with long memories might remember John Candy's stint in another fictional polka band, SCTV's The Happy Wanderers.
