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.

A mockery of the original classic!!
15 December 2005 | by (NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

This supposed sequel to the beloved original 1969 Rankin/Bass special just plain stinks! Frosty doesn't look anything like Frosty, nor does he sound or act like him. And heaven forbid if they should dare to utter the word "Christmas" or even mention "Santa Claus". They should have just given this special an entirely new name. I had just finished watching the DVD of the original Frosty with my nephew. He laughed and cried as we all did when we watched that special as kids and since he was so engrossed in it, I figured "What the heck - let me watch that other special they tacked on the DVD". What a mistake!! The first thing my nephew said was "This looks like Charlie Brown" and he was right - it was produced by the makers of the Peanuts specials. Gone is the lovable, dim-witted, huggable Frosty we remember. He has been replaced by the father from "Roseanne" - in both voice and action. He makes sarcastic wisecracks, dances and doesn't even need his hat to come to life!! Needless to say, my nephew was in the other room playing with the cat before this special was halfway through! It makes me sick that they have the nerve to stick this on the DVD with that classic, I guess its the only way they can schlep this garbage on us. I'm sure most everyone would have preferred them adding an unreleased Rankin/Bass flick instead.
