Awesome list! Especially Scut Farkus. The beating of a child never generated such glee in the annals of movie history.

But how could you possibly leave out Mr. Potter from It's a Wonderful Life? He's the guy who probably inspired half the people on this list! Mrs. Deagle is a direct homage to him! He's so well remembered as the quintessential Christmas asshole that 70 years later SNL made a sketch that consisted entirely of him getting his ass kicked!

Other's I might have included would be:
*Mr. Shirley from Christmas Vacation (though you already did a sweet review of that film)

*Marty from Ernest Saves Christmas (he actually has Santa arrested!)

*Tim Curry in Home Alone 2 (he does a perfect immitation of the Grinch's evil grin)

*Voldar from Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (horrible movies have assholes too)

*Blackadder from Blackadder's Christmas Carol (The anti-Scrooge. He starts out nice and turns into one major asshole)

When it comes to the people you listed, Ted Maltin is probably one of the most obnoxious guys out there.

Also, I agree with Doctor Who about Tim Curry as Mr. Hector in Home Alone 2. That bastard deserved more than just a slap in the face.

ZeldaQueen Dec 5th, 2008 09:17 AM

Nice! Btw, I don't know if you know this or not, but Rose Deagle of Gremlins actual was worse than just wanting to kill the dog. A deleted scene showed that she was buying up homes in the town to build a nuclear power plant. The scene had Kate finding and showing Billy a map of the houses Deagle planned to buy up - and Billy's was next in line.

Oh yeah, and I totally agree with Potter. The guy actually (and quite unsubtly) YAWNS when Bailey's giving a speech in defense of his old man. Brilliant!

Margo & Todd Chester from X-mas vacation (the neighbors). They remind me of the epitome of 80's assholes with their modern homes and CD players.

Was anyone aware that a second one was made - Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure.

The actor who play the wimpy husband in The Ref lives in my town. He's probably the closest to a famous person I've met besides a few people from the Avenue Q musical.

captain516 Dec 5th, 2008 03:12 PM

Ted Maltin was my favorite thing about Jingle All The Way, an otherwise generic family cmedy.
What about the Heat Miser? That guy was a real douche.

Tetsu Deinonychus Dec 5th, 2008 05:01 PM

I second Dr. Who's suggestion! Mr. Potter, the original X-mas movie asshole would be great on this list.

I'd also like to suggest the Burgermeister Meisterburger from "Santa Claus is Coming to Town".

Drunken_Lemur408 Dec 5th, 2008 07:17 PM

How about the guy who tried to prove Santa legally insane from Miracle on 34th Street? I can't remember his name.

Fathom Zero Dec 5th, 2008 09:32 PM

I loved it when Kevin Spacey told her what she was going to get next Christmas.

Purple Man Dec 5th, 2008 11:39 PM

Came here for Frank Cross. Was not disappointed.

Back in high school. My School put on a production of "A Christmas Story". I ended up playing Scut Farkas for 3 of the five shows. During one performance we put on for some kids coming in from a few neighbouring elementary schools, we got to that whole Ralphie beats Scut scene. Well, during that part, the script called for me to give him a facewash (using some snow from a recent snowfall that happened around that time). Well, the dude who handed me the snowball had packed it way too tight, almost an iceball but not quite. So i ended up busting his nose open (Blood on the stage, his costume, some unfortunate children sitting up front). I guess most of the kids thought that it was part of the show because we got some claps and cheers as he stood there, looking pissed off with blood running down his face. So we finish the scene, and i go backstage. And i notice the stage manager panicking over the spilt blood and the poor guy playing Ralphie not realizing that he had been bleeding for the past minute and a half.



Good times, Good times.

I was hoping for MS. Crock from Screwed.

She was stone cold. She almost sucked out Norm McDonald's soul and made him wear his dead father's tux(which she took off his dead body during his burial).

Nick Dec 7th, 2008 07:13 PM

Scut Farkus is a name that simply screams asshole.

NeoGunKuruma Dec 8th, 2008 08:55 AM

Scut Farkus, ah yes the asshole everyone loves to hate.
Probably why it was so funny when the got the everloving crap beat out of them.

McFly Dec 8th, 2008 09:47 AM

You can go with the abominable snowman from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. However, like most bad guys he was misunderstood. After a simple dental operation, he was nice as can be.

porkboy Dec 8th, 2008 06:56 PM

Judge Reinhold spends a lot of time trying to convince Scott Calvin that he's not Santa and trying to indoctrinate Calvin's son in not believing in something that we as the audience clearly know is true.

0dd1 Dec 8th, 2008 09:41 PM

Hey, how about the mayor from "The Year Without a Santa Claus"? How that man can honestly be in charge of a town is beyond me!

Or nearly every character in "Rudolph's Shiny New Year"--what sick 'tard has the nerve to laugh at a baby?!?? I mean, sure, his ears are the size of the Hubble telescope, but would you want someone laughing at YOUR deformities?!?? Huh?!?? Would'ja?!??!?? If you ask me, Rudolph shouldn't've gone rescuing Happy--let those jerks stay stuck in 1976!!!!!!

Heck, even the prosecutor (or maybe he was one of the cops; forgot his name, anyway) from "Santa Jr." Not only does he try to have Santa's son imprisoned, but he has the nerve to act like a stereotypical middle school shy kid when on a date with that lawyer woman (forgot her name too)! I mean, really--he was just so cheesy with that date. It's laughable, but not intentional comedy.

Roggs Dec 12th, 2008 01:13 AM

The oversight of Mr. Potter from It's a Wonderful Life renders this list null and void.

I'd also tack on the Abominable Snowman and Joe Pesci in Home Alone.

Graystreet Dec 12th, 2008 03:37 PM

What about Culkin from the same film? The two burglars are just trying to make a living, he ruins their lives over objects when he comes from a wealthy family that could easily replace them.


They go to France for Christmas, that's the whole plot of the movie, if you decide to fly to a creepy european place for Christmas, something bad is likely to happen. I've seen Hostel, obviously, they hadn't, but I have.

Believe it or not, I've never seen "It's a Wonderful Life"... just bits and pieces of it here 'n there. I know it's a classic 'n all, but it's just one of those movies I've never gotten around to seeing. So yeah, that's why Mr. Potter wasn't included on my list. I was simply listing my personal favorites from the Christmas movies I've seen.

Thanks for the comments though everybody, glad you enjoyed the list! :picklehat

I think Kevin (Culkin) thought they were after him. Which they pretty much were (they had to do SOMETHING with him, after all; they didn't bother with masks, so it stands to reason that they were probably going to kill him anyway).

Mockery Dec 15th, 2008 12:44 AM

Actually, Pesci was less of an asshole than his partner in crime, Daniel Stern. Daniel's character was all about leaving a "calling card" at every house they robbed. So what does he do? He clogged people's kitchen sink drains and left the water running in hopes that the name "The Wet Bandits" would catch on. Robbing people is one thing, but giving them all that water damage on top of it for no real reason? Now that's pretty assholish... even Pesci's character thought so.

10,000 Volt Ghost Dec 15th, 2008 04:42 AM

Wet Bandits :picklehat

Of all the Home Alone characters mentioned, no one mentioned Uncle Frank or Buzz.

executioneer Dec 17th, 2008 01:59 AM

everyone in that movie is an asshole >:

Mockery Dec 17th, 2008 02:42 AM

Marley "The South Bend Shovel Slayer" (Roberts Blossom) was certainly not an asshole.



Buzz: You ever hear of the South Bend Shovel Slayer?

Cousin: No.

Buzz: That's him. Back in '58 he murdered his whole family and half the people on the block with the snow shovel. Been hiding out in this neighborhood ever since.

Cousin: Well, if he's the Shovel slayer, how come the cops don't arrest him?

Buzz: Not enough evidence to convict. They never found the bodies, but everyone around here knows he did it. And it will just be a matter of time before he does it again.

Cousin: What's he doing now?

Buzz: He walks up and down the street every night salting the sidewalks.

Cousin: Maybe he's trying to be nice.

Buzz: No way. See that garbage can filled with salt. that's where he keeps his victims. The salt turns the bodies into mummies.

executioneer Dec 17th, 2008 04:35 AM

he was kind of being an asshole to his son by not talking to him :(

Mockery Dec 17th, 2008 03:22 PM

Maybe his son was the asshole. Probably some spoiled brat who didn't appreciate what an awesome dad he had. :(

pac-man Dec 17th, 2008 08:34 PM

Damn, even the characters who didn't appear on-screen in Home Alone were assholes.

10,000 Volt Ghost Dec 18th, 2008 01:58 PM

"Look what you did you little jerk"

JMFabianoRPL Dec 18th, 2008 03:24 PM

When you think of it, everyone who WASN'T Albert Mouse in "'Twas The Night Before Christmas." Basically everyone is trying to stifle his opinions! It's not his fault Santa Claus had thin skin.

And I agree on Farkus....but what about the Santa Claus in ACS? And his elves? Which may not count to me cause they wound up being funny...as the elf reminds me of my uncle. And even as a kid, Ralphie eating boot was always funny to me.

moonlightkisu Dec 26th, 2008 05:09 PM

how did this list not include scrooge?

Wow, spoken like a true sociopath, Graystreet. Hey, while we're at it, why didn't Harry and Marv just shoot Kevin in the face and then rob his house? I mean, his parents were well off; they could just make another kid, right?

Captain Marbles Feb 5th, 2011 12:42 PM

Max Shreck from "Batman Returns"

Yeah, I know it isn't officially a Christmas movie, but the events of the movie do happen during the Christmas season.

And let's face it, anyone who dumps enough toxic waste to fill a lagoon, is a slumlord who owns half the firetraps in Gotham City, flushes his own business partner down the toilet, plots to steal the city's power with a huge capacitor disguised as a "power plant" and throws his secratary out the window deserves to be on this list of Christmas assholes. Or any list of movie assholes for that matter.
