A Week of Failed Santas, Monday

So you've probably seen Robo-Santa, I've been talking a lot about him and his 12 BOTS this month. (Buy it! Buy it!) You may also know Santasaurus, the candy-cane-striped Triceratops from The Dinosaurs' Night Before Christmas. (Buy it too!) So far, I've done more books with off-beat Santas than actual Santas. Off-beat Santas are all the rage in picture books right now. There are Evil Santas, Pirate Santas, a whole bunch of Dinosaur Santas (Tyrannoclaus, Santasaurus etc.) Alternative Santas, they are here to stay.

This week, I thought we'd spend some time with some Alternative Santas who will never get a picture book deal.

Monday's Santa is...


Jolly Old St. Dental Claus. He comes down the chimney and performs oral surgery on all good boys and girls. You better watch out.

Creepy- reminds me of that Nazi Dr. in Marathon Man, except with a beard and a red suit.

Ha ha. Actually, considering how expensive dental work is, I'd actually trade a visit from regular Santa Claus for a visit from Dental Claus.

I know a lot of kids from my high school that would have really loved that nitrous oxide backpack.

I agree Nathan! Where was Dental Claus last December when I had my wisdom teeth out?
