Snow Miser is a character from the Rankin/Bass film The Year Without a Santa Claus, which first aired on December 10th, 1974 on the ABC television network.[1] The character, as well as his theme song, has inspired several fan remakes and parodies.


In the film, Snow Miser controls the cold weather of the world. He shares a fierce rivalry with his brother, Heat Miser, and they often battle each other over control of the weather. During such a battle, Heat Miser shoots down a flying reindeer which was carrying two elves, Jingle and Jangle, who were trying to help get Santa back to good health so he could do his yearly Christmas deliveries. They land in South Town and quickly run into trouble with the law, as well as the mayor of South Town, who will only believe the elves to be who they are if they bring snow to the town. Mrs. Claus steps in take the elves to visit Snow Miser in his ice castle, where they are greeted by him and his iconic theme music (shown below).[2]

This scene would also reappear in the 1997 film Batman & Robin, in which Mr. Freeze has his minions sing along to Snow Miser's song (shown below).[3]
