Comic Book: Jingle Belle

And Happy Holidays to you too!
A comic book series written by Paul Dini about Santa Claus rather rebellious teenage daughter who would rather be doing typical teenage thing then helping to run the family business.

There's also a few flash animations as well features on the Jingle Belle website.


Jingle Belle provides the following tropes:

  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: And how
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: After getting sick of her family taking advantage of her magic, Polly gets even by turning their home into a self-restoring gingerbread house. She then leaves them to enjoy themselves, and her family turns into a pack of ravenous gluttons that devour the house and become obese. Polly gets them to promise to stop abusing her magic and returns the house to normal, but since she can't use her power to directly affect them, she puts them on an exercise regime.
  • Cute Witch: Polly Green
  • Engineered Public Confession: Jingle gets the snotty councilwoman to confess she was attacking Santa's reputation so she could jump start her political career, regardless that she was harassing an innocent man and was potentially ruining the holiday season for millions of children. This happens on a live television feed.
  • Jerkass: Jingle who really goes out of her way to undermine her father and is rude to a lot of people outside her mother and friends. Though...
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:...In situations that threaten him or the North Pole, she'll be more then willing to help him out.
  • The Krampus: Turns up in the 2010 story "Grounded".
  • Moral Guardians: One story focuses on a councilwoman trying to make a name for herself by decrying Santa Claus as a menace to society who promotes obesity and materialism. She later gets tricked into admitting she was only attacking him because he's an easy target.
  • Really 700 Years Old: All the Clauses which is justifed as they're holiday immortals. Jingle herself is 224 Years old though looks like a teenage.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Jingle's gal pal Polly Green, the Halloween Witch, wears the traditional witch's pointed hat.
  • Spin-Off: Mutant Texas: Tales of Sheriff Ida Red.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In "Grounded," Santa dismisses one of Jingle's new toy ideas, but when it proves to be a hit with a bunch of toy executives, he "forgets" to tell Jingle about it. She is rightly devastated when, months later, she finds a stockroom filled with copies of her doll lacking any mention of her involvement in their creation. She then creates a robotic double of herself meant to be the perfect daughter and runs away from home.
