How's it going my gumdrops? Have you been naughty for Krampus or nice for Saint Nicholas Day? Last year, NBC's Grimm aired an episode about Krampus. I've never heard of Krampus, until last December.

I would've learned about him 2 years ago on American Dad. American Dad has an episode called "Minstrel Krampus."

"Minstrel Krampus" was supposed to air on Fox in December 2012.
Fox pre-empted the episode, until last December. Because of the controversy surrounding the Sandy Hook Massacre, "Minstrel Krampus" was NOT aired in December 2012.
Leave it up to the media to cause more hysteria than necessary. Don't get me wrong, I empathize with the families of the Sandy Hook victims. They spent their holiday and continue spending their entire lives without their children.
However, American Dad's "Minstrel Krampus" episode had ZERO involvement in a 15-year-old boy, NOT a 20-year-old man murdering innocent children. The media's Math skills are much worse than mine. That in itself is rather appalling.
2012-1997= 15 years
Fox would not air that American Dad episode because they really did NOT want to be used as a scapegoat for a 15-year-old boy with mental and behavioral problems, who killed innocent adults and children. Go figure.
The network already knows the media is skilled at demonizing entertainment. This justifies Fox's reason for unairing American Dad's "Minstrel Krampus" in December 2012.
Since I'm on the topic of Krampus, DanniDarkness (1 of my gumdrops) posted a blog last year on Blogster about Krampus. Unfortunately, I don't know if she removed her blog about him, or if that Blogster glitch deleted it. Regardless, I couldn't locate the link to Danni's Krampus blog.
According to what I have learned about Krampus, he is a beast-like monster, that is a part of ancient Germanic folklores. Krampus is a black and/sometimes brown haired demon with cloven hooves and goat-like horns.
On December 5th (Saint Nicholas Eve), Krampus punishes misbehaved children by capturing them in his sack. Then, he carries them to his lair. Some have said, that Krampus even carries them to hell. In the video below, Lucas Livingston explains in more detail about the history of Krampus.

After learning a little more about Krampus, I understand why he is portrayed as being a womanizer on American Dad. When I read DanniDarkness' blog last year on Blogster about Krampus, she mentioned that songs were made about him.
I do NOT know any of the songs, although I found a Metal song about Krampus for this Song Saturday. Listening to the song makes me automatically think about Adult Swim's Metalocalypse for some odd reason.
Today I have a song by Craterface. It's called "Krampus Carol."
