I will set the ball rolling...
Nightmare Before Christmas
Glutton For Santas or Santa Hunter (ok there is only one Santa - but do you KNOW it?)
It Came From The Chimney
Christmas Tree Inhabitant
How about Santa Claws? A new multi-use creature for cutting down xmas trees, tearing open presents, carving the turkey, scaring the in-laws. The whole works.
What naughty kids should be given instead of coal in their stockings.
- Little JC in da hizzo! (if he was a creature, what would he look like?)
- slay bells (a play on words)
- missle toe (again, a play on words)
- cute but deadly (KIDDING!....or am i?)
- cookies and milk (this would be two creatures that work together - kinda symbiotic, but with that holiday ring)
man, brain is not working.

The Stocking Stuffer
The Coal Monster - punisher of naughty children
Um.. that's all I got. I like Fozzy's idea of Santa Hunter - perhaps it feeds on mall and/or street corner Santas, since the real Santa is so elusive?
Plate gave me an idea - A Mall Santa Monster - lures children to their doom.
WARNING - May reek of whiskey
Ok, I just want to say that as soon as I read the topic I had an idea, but I didn't know that it wasn't really the topic.
I would suggest having the topic be just "X-mas related creature"
My idea for a creature was a creature worshipped by the Celts or other european people considered "pagans" by the christian point of view, that appears only one time of a year (christmas).
I really don't like christmas, or at least the modernized version of it, thats why I would like it to be a little more broad (like being able to draw something not so related to christian simbolisms) but thats only me whinning
I also like romance's idea of "Santa Claws"
North Pole Elves
Cristmas Forest Beast
What was really beneath the XMAS tree
THE XMAS TREE MONSTER OF DOOM
guess some one already said the SANTA KLAWS
Santa's evil clone/brother
Evil Rebellious Elf
lol this is going to be fun
i like that.
'Stiocking Suprise", that sounds really interesting. a lot of potential in that one.
The Gift Wrapper - elves may make the toys, but what wraps them?
Santa's Spies - how he knows if you've been bad or good
And if we're in the mood for some sacreligousness:
What the Guiding Star (re: Three Wise Men) Really Was
Born in the Manger, In the Next Stall
A couple of years ago I read a an early tale of Santa Claus and I don't exactly remember where it originated, but he used to come to peoples homes on X-mas Eve with someone. An elf called Black Peter and while Santa would give gifts to the good boys and girls Black Peter would whip the bad ones. I love that story. Has anyone else ever heard of this? Anyways, maybe that would be an interesting topic.
I'm really new to this!
didn't even know it existed!! but i'm very excited!!
Santa messes with genetics to make elves more efficient...but something went horribly wrong...
Santa Beast, conqueror of the arctic land, demonic warlord and ruler of the north pole, Elf slave driver.
I really like the Black Peter idea as well, I've heard a similar story but I cannot for the life of me remember it.
any of you remember that aqua teen hunger force episode with the robot ghost of christmas past and the evil orangatang santa claus?
Ah yes, the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future. Probably my favorite episode of that show.Originally Posted by pr0ph3t
The elf-based ideas all sound interesting, but they'd probably be better suited for the ChOW than here. There are a lot of good ideas here, but it's probably best to keep them as vague as possible to ensure that we get a wide variety in the entries. Of the ideas presented so far, I think that Stocking Surprise or Santavore would work the best, since both give a general direction without limiting the possibilities for the creature's design.
But that's just my opinion, disregard it if you wish.
me like santa claws! and stocking suprise! What about.. santa put claws in stocking and you get realy suprised, beacuse who would get claws for cristmas. SUPER PSYCKO EVIL KID!
Scrooge- holed up in his living room with a shotgun and booby trapped chimney!
... i dunno. creature. The New Rudolph?
Rudolph: why the nose is red? perhaps explained with bioluminesence or something
i think that whatever is chosen as final, then it should have some element that everyone has to get in their final posting. if it's santavore, for instance, then maybe it needs to be rotund or bearded.....ya dig?
haven't you heard? it's a tumor.Originally Posted by bizarre
"Well Rudolf we finally figured out what makes your nose red."
"Is it pixy dust or Leprocaun tails?"
"No its a tumor."
"You mean like a magical christmas tumor?"
"No a malignant tumor the base of which is lodged deep within your brain."
"Oh... like a happy special-"
"You're going to die."
(family guy xmas special)
Sorry for all the adult swim references lately...
ugh...the hardest part about this is having to flippin' wait until next week to start on this holiday COW. curse you santa!
All great suggestions so far, but alot of them more suitable for CHOW.
Evil morphing ball of non-functional x-mas light strings.
Mistletoe Monster, lures kissing couples in w/ Mistletoe bait (Think lantern fish)
fozzy can we start a bit sooner puhlease please please pretty please? some of us are leaving soon for the holidays and might not have access to a scanner or computer for a while
fruitcake creature - hahahahaa....i already thought it was a creature.
Damn you Bennett, I so wanted to be the first to suggest the immortal fruitcake monster!
How about Olive, the other reindeer?
