The little boy has no name in the original Briggs cartoon book. However the makers of the film required a name for the child's gift tag and selected 'James' after the boyfriend (later husband) of one of the animators. See more
After the snowman comes to life and the boy and the snowman first enter the boy's house, the cat is not lying in front of the fireplace. A moment later, the cat, sound asleep, is lying in front of the fireplace. See more
I remember that winter because it had brought the heaviest snows I had ever seen. Snow had fallen steadily all night long and in the morning I woke in a room filled with light and silence, the world seemed to be held in a dream-like stillness. It was a magical day...
...and it was on that day I made the snowman.
