I saw the original "Frosty the Snowman" special when I was
a kid, but I don't think I saw this one. It's from 1976, so I was
already a bit too old to watch it. It's a fun cartoon, though, and
one you could watch with your kids and not be too bored.
The basic story is that Frosty gets bored and lonely when the
kids he plays with go home to their parents, so they decide to make him a wife.
(I was laughing as I watched it, thinking of "The Bride of Frankenstein"!) They
also run afoul of Jack Frost, who is kind of miffed that the kids like spending
so much time with Frosty and don't like him.
Of course, being a cartoon, things end up okay in the end. Andy
Griffith is the narrator, and he also appears briefly and sings a song or two.
Actress Shelley Winters is the voice of Crystal, the snow wife. Singer Dennis
Day is the voice of Parson Brown.
There are some good tunes in the special, especially "Winter
Wonderland", of course. It's fun for everyone. Make sure to get this one
for your kids, and they will love it.
There are also two fun extras. One looks at the history of
Snowmen, and the other looks just at Frosty. They are both interesting and
From beloved song to animated holiday classic: Frosty meets his

Snowman?s winter return to the children of a small town for a winter season of

Frosty, Jack Frost blows up a blizzard and swipes Frosty?s magical, life-giving
hat. Only true love can bring Frosty back to his old fun-loving self. Two songs
that have proven to be enduring seasonal favorites highlight the soundtrack:
