Aeon the Terrible is the antagonist of the Rankin/Bass television special Rudolph's Shiny New Year. He is a giant vulture who is stated to live for approximately one eon; at his death, he will supposedly turn into ice and snow. It appears that his time is up on December 31st of the year the special takes place, so he goes looking for Happy, the Baby New Year, to make time freeze and himself immortal. At the end, when he sees Happy's oversized ears he laughs so hard that it is impossible for him to turn into ice and snow, so he thus gets the result he wants.
