I saw this a very long ago as a child (early-mid 1990s, probably European or American but syndicated in India); it was an animated TV series for children, showing a different fairy tale every episode.

In this episode there's a town, and the town is celebrating a festival. Everybody is very happy and is enjoying the festival, but there is one person in particular who's a bit of a Scrooge -- he doesn't enjoy the festival, and doesn't enjoy the merrymaking. He wants nothing to do with it. The villagers know he's like this, and generally avoid him.

That festival day, a man knocks on the Scrooge's door. This is where my memory gets hazy...

If I recall correctly, the two get into some sort of challenge or competition or show... the visitor takes off his mask, only to reveal a mask underneath. And the mask underneath is taken off, to reveal another mask, and so on and so forth.

Eventually the visitor leaves... and the Scrooge takes off his own mask, revealing the face of a devil.

Anyway, that's what I remember, and I might have mixed up the details. Been trying to track down this TV series for decades. Does anyone know what this is?
