Paul Dini spotlights Jingle Belle on Newsarama

: Jingle Belle

FIRST APPEARANCE: Oni (Dini) Double Feature #13

In most stories Santa Claus has no children. There’s Mrs. Claus, the elves, the reindeer and that’s about it. Then about 10 years ago I started thinking, if Santa had kids in today’s modern world, what would they be like? Here’s this guy who means so much to the kids of the world, but around the house, he’s just plain dad. How does his own kid relate him, warts and all? With that in mind, the rest of Jingle Belle’s character quickly fell into place.
