These are the monster and Frackle henchmen of Cosmo Scam in "The Great Santa Claus Switch".

As Ed Sullivan describes them in the special: "So Santa Claus had been mysteriously led away by two weird creatures who worked for Cosmo Scam. And deep beneath the North Pole, in the cave of the wicked magician, there was much excitement. Even Cosmo's furry henchmen, the Frackles, were nervous."
