Frosty Meets his Match
5 December 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

CONTAINS SPOILERS

The children build a snowman then place a straw hat on its head, hoping it will come to life. But it doesn't. They miss Frosty and wonder when he'll be coming back. Up at the North Pole, Frosty misses the kids too and when he hears winter has hit, he heads for town. He and the kids go ice skating and Frosty skates a figure 9. But not everybody has glad to see Frosty, for old Jack Frost witnessed the kids and Frosty and became jealous that he didn't get any recognition. He plans to blow off Frosty's hat so he won't be alive anymore and misses the first time.

The children notice that Frosty seems lonely, so they decide to build him a snow-wife. She came complete with two eyes made out of blue beads, dust-mop hair and a bonnet donated from a horse, but all she was missing was life. Frosty gave her a bouquet of frost flowers he had made and that symbol of love brought the wife to life. She was named Crystal. Crystal and Frosty began romping in the snow, just as Jack Frost appeared and blew Frosty's hat off, rendering him lifeless. Luckily, Crystal put a flower in Frosty's buttonhole (something every groom should have) and Frosty came back to life. The wedding was soon on. Parson Brown was called, but he declared he couldn't marry snowpeople, however a snow parson could, so they built one, gave it the good book and it came to life. He declared Frosty and Crystal man and snow-wife. Jack Frost was invited to the ceremony and wasn't evil anymore. So Frosty, Crystal, Jack Frost and the kids played in the snow from January to April when winter should be ending. Jack Frost offered to make it winter forever but Parson Brown said that would be bad for the trees and flowers, so when Frosty and Crystal board a train to the North Pole, Jack Frost goes with them and spring begins. They waved goodbye, saying "Don't you cry, I'll be back again someday".

A pretty good sequel to Frosty the Snowman and it stays very true to it. Jackie Vernon returns as Frosty. Shelley Winters (perfect name for this particular feature) plays Crystal, Dennis Day is Parson Brown, Paul Frees is Jack Frost and also has a cameo as the whistle swallowing traffic cop, and our narrator is Andy Griffith. In 1992, Frosty Returns aired, but it wasn't a part 3 because Frosty wasn't married. Frosty Returns wasn't quite as good as the original or this feature, but it's still nice to watch around Christmas time. Anyway, in conclusion, check out Frosty's Winter Wonderland. You'll love it if you liked the original!
