Saturday Frights: The Misfit Toy Presents A Wonderfully Frightening Look At The Miser Brothers

A couple of days ago The Misfit Toy was kind enough to send us an e-mail here at the Retroist Vault, like many of us in the U.S.A. it seems he too has had just about enough of the bizarre weather that has bedeviled most of the country.

The Misfit Toy said: “I don’t know about you, but I am really starting to hate winter.
Out of the two Misers in The Year Without a Santa Claus, I always preferred good old Mr Snow Miser when I was a kid.
But his cold, icy grin is starting to leave me … well, really cold. This has been the worst winter ever and it’s starting to make me long for his fat, sweaty brother Heat Miser.
Anyway, I thought the horrible winter weather that many people are dealing with across the US might be a good opportunity to show off some twisted versions I created a couple of years ago of Snow Miser and Heat Miser.”
