Heat Miser and his minions performing their version of the song.

The songs "Snow Miser" and "Heat Miser" were originally written by Maury Laws and Jules Bass for the 1974 Rankin-Bass stop-motion animated special The Year Without A Santa Claus. In that special, the songs were respectively performed by Dick Shawn as the Snow Miser and George S. Irving as his brother Heat Miser.

The songs were reprised as one song in the 2006 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 2008 animated sequel A Miser Brothers' Christmas. While Irving reprised his role as Heat Miser in the latter reprise, Canadian voice actor Juan Chorian played the Snow Miser role as Dick Shawn passed away in 1989.

Both songs are included on the album Nick at Nite: A Classic Cartoon Christmas, Too. The Snow Miser's song was also heard in the 1997 movie Batman and Robin as Mr. Freeze (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) attempts to have his minions sing it, so they watch the special and listen to Dick Shawn's version.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Barely Pink and the Swamp Zombies have all covered versions of this song.

Snow Miser

Snow Miser Song (1974)

Snow Miser: I'm Mister White Christmas, I'm Mister Snow.
I'm Mister Icicle; I'm Mister Ten below.
Friends call me Snow Miser, whatever I touch,
Turns to snow in my clutch.
I'm too much.
Minions: He's Mister White Christmas, he's Mister Snow.
Snow Miser: That's right!
Minions: He's Mister Icicle; he's Mister Ten below.
Snow Miser: Friends call me Snow Miser, whatever I touch,
Turns to snow in my clutch.
I'm too much.
I never want to know a day that's over forty degrees,
I'd rather have it thirty, twenty, ten, five and let it freeze!
Minions: He's Mister White Christmas, he's Mister Snow.
Snow Miser: That's right!
Minions: He's Mister Icicle; he's Mister Ten below.
Snow Miser: Friends call me Snow Miser, whatever I touch,
Turns to snow in my clutch.
Too much.
All: Too much!

Heat Miser (1974)

Heat Miser: I'm Mister Green Christmas, I'm Mister Sun.
I'm Mister Heat Blister, I'm Mister Hundred and One.
They call me Heat Miser, whatever I touch
Starts to melt in my clutch.
I'm too much.
Minions: He's Mister Green Christmas, he's Mister Sun.
He's Mister Heat Blister, he's Mister Hundred and One.
Heat Miser: They call me Heat Miser, whatever I touch
Starts to melt in my clutch.
Minions: He's too much.
Heat Miser: Thank you.
I never want to know a day that's under sixty degrees,
I'd rather have it eighty, ninety, one hundred degrees!
(Speech)
Oh, some like it hot, but I like it really hot! [chortles]
Minions: He's Mister Green Christmas, he's Mister Sun.
Heat Miser: Sing it!
Minions: He's Mister Heat Blister, he's Mister Hundred and One.
Heat Miser: They call me Heat Miser, whatever I touch
Starts to melt in my clutch.
I'm too much.
All: Too much!
