Audience Reviews for Frosty the Snowman

    Frosty, like its counterparts, is completely timeless. The music is the highlight, props to Jimmy Durante. It is also very colorful for a 60's animated film.

    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.

    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!
