Can you recommend any good, relatively clean, satirical "true story"/"Biography"-type humor writings, videos, skits, etc about Santa, and/or perhaps other Christmas characters like Rudolph or Frosty?

Ideally it'd be something absurd but straight-faced... An "alternate history" like how Santa was a pilot in Vietnam, or moonlighted as an assassin, or was once invited to spring training with the Mets, or had a promising singing career derailed by an addiction to candy canes. Or was once asked to come out of retirement for "one last Christmas," etc.
Humor-wise I'm thinking of something along the lines of MST3K or Letterman.
