“Season’s Greetings from Krampus” by Screen Novelties

Post-holiday blues got you down? It’s still not too late to enjoy one final round of holiday cheer with this animated greeting produced by Los Angeles-based Screen Novelties. The beast-like character, Krampus, is rooted in Germanic folklore, and if the crew at Screen Novelties has their way, Krampus will star in longer-form tales in the future. Take a look at these behind-the-scene photos showing the impressive amount of effort needed to create this short animated piece.

    Seems like Krampus has been all over the place the past couple of Christmases. I guess once again, Venture Bros. has proven to be on the cultural cutting edge, as their Xmas special featuring an appearance by (and explanation of) Krampus first aired almost 10 years ago. I think for a lot of Americans, that was the first any of them had heard of Krampus.
