When this movie was released in the U.S. it contained a tacked-on live-action prologue featuring TV personality Art Linkletter. He introduced the movie and recited a rhyme: "One snowflake, two / three snowflakes, four / now you'll see the Snow Queen / if you count a million more." When he finished the rhyme, the movie began.

Soyuzmultfilm's wonderful adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy story
Like I said animation is an art form, and in a few countries in the world there are some excellent animation; especially in Japan and The Soviet. My first glimpse of animation from Russia are shorts that were dubbed in English in a TV show from Film Roman called "Animated Classic Showcase."
I now confess that Russia's Soyuzmultfilm Studios make excellent animated shorts and films like this wonderful adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy story "The Snow Queen," which is another favorite of mine. In 1960, the film had been dubbed in English along with a live-action prologue to go with it and a top-notch voice cast like : · Sandra Dee...Gerda, · Tommy Kirk...Kay, · Louise Arthur...The Snow Queen, · June Foray...Henrietta the Court Raven/the Finnish woman, · Paul Frees...Ol' Dreamy/Mr. Corax the Raven, and... · Patricia McCormack...Angel the robber girl.
