Big Red. Big, husky kid living at the edge of town. Loves red things, has twelve mailboxes. Worked with Oprah and O'Donahue to expose Olga as a thief, then built the tube system to thank the agents for getting his mailboxes back. First and only appearance was in "Fistful of Fruit Juice".
Or was it...?
Many of you know that in the earlier episode "Reindeer Games", Ms. O refers to Santa Claus as the nickname, "Big Red". But is it really just her own personal nickname? Or maybe...
Big Red and Santa Claus are the same person!
Granted, it's probably just a coincidence, one that many of you have likely considered already. But here's what you might not have considered:
Both Big Red and Santa are very burly and don't seem self-conscious of it.
Both wear all red.
Both like giving gifts to others.
But most strikingly... both get A LOT OF MAIL!
Now does it seem like a mere coincidence?
Maybe. I mean, Santa Claus has been around for a few hundred years, and Saint Nicholas has been around for millenia more. Both existed before 1870, when Big Red was around.
Then again, if any of you have ever seen the stop motion movie of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", you'd know that Kris Kringle has bright red hair in his youth. Just like Big Red.
