    From Rankin/Bass comes the animated holiday special Jack Frost. Famed groundhog Pardon-Me-Pete recounts the tale of how he met Jack Frost one fateful Groundhog Day and the time that Jack attempted to become human. Narrated by Buddy Hackett, the film has a strong cast that features several Rankin/Bass regulars. And as usual, the animation and character designs are especially well-done. Additionally, the songs, such as "Jack Frost is Here" and "Just What I Always Wanted," are charming and whimsical. Entertaining and fun, Jack Frost is another solid entry in the Rankin/Bass catalog.

    Interesting take on the background to the elemental spirit of Jack Frost in this classic claymation like many others from the 1970s. One of the lesser known Christmas Claymations, but one worth watching at least once.

    Jack Frost has unremarkable animation, some of the worst songs that Rankin-Bass has produced, and a main character so poorly casted that it makes this one of the dullest Christmas specials of all time.

    Wow, I watched this movie with my entire family and everybody hated it, even my seven-year-old nephew. Next to "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," this movie isn't very well known and that's exactly how it should be.

    A house, a horse, some gold, and a wife: everything you need to be human. :p An old favorite of mine.
