    I get the pun, but I don’t know the characters represented.

    My guess? Frosty the Snowman, a representation of winter cold and flu. Jack Frost, and a gnome from Zurich.

    They’re characters from the movies like the Miser Brothers’ Christmas and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

    These are characters from the Rankin-Bass animated Christmas specials. The snowman, voiced by Burl Ives, the Heat Miser, the Snow Miser, and Burgermeister Meisterburger, mayor of Sombertown. (I hope I got them right.)

    Ok, I know the snowman from Rudolf, the heat miser, cold miser, not sure about the guy on the farthest right.


    Don’t think the snowman and cold miser will be there long.

    Briatollah has them all correct. The snowman in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was named Sam, by the way.

    Thanks for your comment. Until then I didn’t get this at all – not enough coffee yet I guess. Ugly sweaters – got it now.

    The first one is Frosty the Snowman. The second are the Miser brothers: Heat Miser and Cold Miser, then there’s the main antagonist in one of the claymation stories about Santa Claus.
