It adds a new dimension to a fun Christmas song only Rankin Bass could have pulled off.

Audience Reviews for Frosty the Snowman

I haven't seen this movie in years, but I loved it when I was a kid, and I think kids today will enjoy it still. Watch it for Christmas this year and see for yourself. Merry Christmas!

Basically an extended version of the song, Frosty the Snowman probably holds more cheer for American audiences. In England we have The Snowman, a much subtler and sadder story, but very similar. Here we have some kids looking to have fun with Frosty while a magician tries to reclaim his magic hat. I couldn't completely enjoy this as, to me, it was rightfully the magician's hat in the first place. The song is always great, and I liked most of the voice work. At under half an hour, it's a great, quick dose of Christmas.
