Cousin Mel (voiced by Michele Lee) – The main antagonist of the film. Cousin Mel is a money-grubbing do-badder who wears too much makeup and jewelry and beats Grandpa at cards. Cousin Mel is out to sell the store to the wealthy Austin Bucks, and makes Santa Claus the fall guy in a lawsuit over Grandma's disappearance so she can get all his money. Her partner in crime was her lawyer, I.M. Slime, who was also in on Mel's scheme. At the end of the film, she is arrested, imprisoned, and is on Santa's naughty list for life. Other than simply "a cousin," it is unclear as to her exact relationship within the family or even if she is a Spankenheimer.
