A discarded silk tophat becomes the focus of a struggle between a washed-up stage magician and a group of schoolchildren after it magically brings a snowman to life. Realizing that newly-living Frosty will melt in spring unless he takes refuge in a colder climate, Frosty and a young girl who he befriends stow away on a freight train headed for the north pole. Little do they know that the magician is following them, and he wants his hat back. This animated short is based on the popular Christmas song of the same name. Written by

June Foray provided the voices of Karen, the Teacher and the other children. However, starting with the third airing of the special, most of her recordings as Karen and the other children were replaced with the voices of actual young children. Her voice can still be heard in subsequent airings of the special in some of the other children's dialogue. No changes were made to the credits, so the actual child voice actors remain unknown and uncredited. Foray's voices can be heard on the Rhino Records soundtrack. See more »

A snow that'd make a homecoming homier, and natural enemies, friends, natural. For it was the first snow of the season. And as any child can tell you, there's a certain magic that comes with the very first snow, especially when it falls on the day before Christmas. For when the first snow is also a Christmas snow...

When I was a kid, I used to watch this all the time around Christmas time, and I have always loved this! This is a requirement around Christmas, no matter what. What I mean by that is whenever Christmas time rolls around, you should take the time to watch Frosty The Snowman, you will find it to be very hysterical! My mother and father love this as well, and even though I am older, I can still watch this and laugh at it and enjoy it! This has always been an extremely enormous childhood favorite of mine and it stills holds up to that to this day! I hope I never grow old enough not to like this.
Jimmy Durante's narration is one of my favorite bits of this short, every time I begin to hear his voice, I immediately become totally and completely focused on only one thing, this animated television special. This animated television special gets a perfect rating of ten stars out of ten for being a childhood favorite of mine, not to mention that it also gets that perfect rating for being a timeless Christmas classic! This is 100% perfect, there honestly is nothing negative that I have to say about this, you heard me, nothing negative at all, not one single negative thing, nothing.
Here is a little something that I am going to recommend to you, if you haven't seen this remarkable and fabulous Holiday classic, then you have totally and completely got to see it! Why should you see it? Because it is a masterpiece, it is flawless, it is hysterical, it is just plain fabulous! So if you haven't seen this, you should see it, because believe me, you are totally and completely going to enjoy this remarkable masterpiece!
