In the 1920s "gremlins" sprang up as a pass-the-buck euphemism for RAF mechanical failures. "Gremlins" live on in current General Motors (GM: GreMlin) sometimes fatal auto design malfunctions. So, if it looks like a bomb, and walks like a bomb, and explodes like a bomb, it's a GreMlin! Hit it with a big hammer!
Certainly did have the concept of gremlins and they looked pretty much exactly like in these pictures. The Fighting Yank had a recurring enemy called the Gremlin who was like a way lower powered Mr. Mxyzptlk.
