Snow Miser is the brother of Heat Miser and controls the snow. Of course, since he's in charge of the cold, he is the calmer, cooler of the brothers, and loves seeing Heat Miser get agitated.

I've got to give this to Dick Shawn. His Snow Miser is classic. Juan's imitation is admirable, but doesn't have quite the same lasting impact as Dick's hammy performance.

1. Dick Shawn- His performance is hammy and a classic. Definitely fits the role of someone easy-going and friendly.
2. Juan Chioran- His performance is pretty good, but I don't think it's as good as the original.

Giving this to Shawn. Sorry, Juan, but you really don't sound anything like the original Snow Miser.

BONUS OPTION: I can't help but think that Nathan Lane would make a great Snow Miser. I could also see Rob Paulsen or Martin Short pulling it off.

Did they base Snow Miser's hairdo on Dick Shawn or is it just a coincidence that it looks the same?

@Polyester Funk I'm gonna guess that it was intentional since Heat Miser looks like his VA, George S. Irving. I should have looked at that before posting my first comment.

Dick Shawn, period. Juan Chioran was really miscast in the part, IMO. They should have gone for Fred Willard.

@Galactic_Cyrus Fred Willard sounds a lot like Snow Miser.

@TeridaxXD001 Exactly! That's why he'd be a natural fit.

Similarly if they hadn't gotten Heat Miser's original voice back, Wallace Shawn would be the ideal replacement.

Dick Shawn the best end of story. the other guy was not as good sorry to say.

A shame Dick Shawn died in the 1980's if he had lived it would have been cool to see him reunite with the voice actor of Heat Miser in the new movie that came out a couple yrs ago.
