Critic Reviews for Frosty the Snowman
It's a tight narrative that avoids unnecessary detours or mediocre songs, and Professor Hinkle is the perfect foil for the children and the kind, absent-minded Frosty.
The animation is folksy and cute, like an old-timey holiday card, and the raspy voice of Jimmy Durante...as the narrator is like home sweet home.
The 1969 original, which, though hardly an animation classic, had a genuine, simple sweetness stemming from its inspiration.
From the raspy sound of Jimmy Durante's narration to the pastel animation of the town, watching this movie...is like the warmth of listening to an old record.
To those of middle age who remember Frosty fondly, we offer this warning: Look again, and yawn.
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.
by far my favorite of rankin basses films
