Tiny Tim  (also known as Timothy Cratchit) is part of the supporting cast of "A Christmas Carol," a popular novel by British author Charles Dickens and was featured in The Real Ghostbusters in the episode "Xmas Marks the Spot."
Tiny Tim was the youngest son of Bob Cratchit and an invalid. Despite this and his family's poverty, Tiny Tim remained happy and optimistic. On Christmas Eve 1837, Bob and Tiny Tim picked up dinner at the butcher's shop. It was a meager duck but Tiny Tim's optimism kept Cratchit from remaining sullen. They was unaware Ebenezer Scrooge was about to be visited by Jacob Marley, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, the Ghost of Christmas Future, and... the Ghostbusters.
