The songs were reprised as one song in the live-action film adaptation , performed by Michael McKean as Snow Miser and Harvey Fierstein in the role of Heat Miser, and reprised again in the animated sequel A Miser Brothers' Christmas. Freeze played by Arnold Schwarzenegger attempts to have his minions sing it, so they watch the special and listen to Dick Shawn's version. Friends call me Snow Miser, whatever I touch, turns to snow in my clutch.
He lives in a volcano and controls the hot weather around the world. It should be noted that both Snow Miser and Heat Miser were not in the original poem that the special is based on. Heat Miser lives within an active volcano with his minions. Although Heat Miser lives in the southern hemisphere, he and his brother regularly patrol the North Pole. Heat Miser has darker skin than his icy brother, but he is still fairly pale, although his skin does have a slight orange tint to it. His hair is red and sticks up, making it look like flames. He wears a red shirt and yellow leggings, and long, red pointed shoes. He has a round red nose. Like his brother, he is abnormally tall and towers over both humans and Mother Nature, but out of the two brothers, he is the shorter one in stature. In A Miser Brothers' Christmas , his design is slightly altered and he now wears a red suit and yellow pants.
The story is based on Phyllis McGinley 's book of the same name. The film was Shirley Booth 's final acting credit as she retired from acting after its completion. Santa Claus wakes up with a cold sometime before Christmas.
