Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Some folks say if you really want to see the country, take a bus. Or hop a train. Ride a bike. Me, I'm an old-fashioned kind of guy. Stick to what I know: snowflakes. I know it's not for everyone, but as long as you pack light, I mean, and wear at least three layers of undies, it's a lovely way to spend the winter.

In a word: awful
28 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a story about some greedy bad guys who seek to exploit Frosty and ruin his good name with a terrible product and shoddy politics. The worst part is that they succeeded by releasing "Frosty Returns."

An incomplete list of the problems with one reads like:

  • The "jokes" are weak and just not funny


  • The songs are dreadfully flat


  • The animation is cheaply done and poorly drawn - It doesn't even look


like Frosty
  • The bad guy is a corparate type who doesn't care if his product is bad


for the environment - c'mon guys, this is a children's special.
  • Frosty is now fashion-conscious.


  • There's no Christmas and no Santa.




All this in sequel to an all-time classic. It's sickening.
