This guy right here baby. If you are on the naughty list in Germany or Austria he will thrash you hard. Many European countries have a so called evil Santa but none are more well known. My guess is he was originally a winter solstice god to whom children were sacrificed. Now he is under the control of St Nick, as are most evil Santa's. The new religion reigning in the old I suppose.

There was an episode of the Ghostbusters cartoon where the Ghostbusters are zapped back in time and hired by Scrooge to catch the Christmas ghosts. It was always one of my favorites.

Yes I've always seen him as an American answer to the evil Santa meme.

Btw what was Tiny Tim's medical problem? I doubt it was malnutrition because the rest of Bob Cratchets family wasn't that way. My hypothesis is he was a polio survivor. If so late nineteenth century medicine couldn't have cured him regardless of Bob's salary.

I don't believe it's ever specified. I'm not sure it matters whether or not an illness can be cured since if it can't there's still likely to be support needs and those will have costs.

In the book, descriptions make it seem like Tuberculosis (which can spread to the bones) and / or Rickets.
