Storyline

Four children, all but one of whom go unnamed, build a snowman which comes to life and threatens their town. Kenny, the only child whose name is given in the film, and who resembles the character called Cartman in the subsequent Spirit of Christmas, The (1995) and "South Park" (1997), is immediately killed by the monster. When the children go to Santa for help, he is revealed to be the monster in disguise, and slaughters another of the kids. The two survivors approach the baby Jesus, who takes on the evil snowman and wins, saving Christmas. Written by Anonymous

It sucks
22 August 1999 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This first foray into South Park completely stunk. Perhaps it was tarnished because I saw the hilarious Jesus vs Santa Spirit of Christmas first. The only cool thing about this short was that Kenny and Cartman were switched. The fat Cartman we know and love was Kenny (he also didn't talk). I was shocked when Frosty smoked Cartman, he died and I heard "Ohmygod, they killed Kenny!". Neither Kenny nor Cartman spoke (that I remember), and I'm glad Matt and Trey made the changes that did to make Jesus vs Santa break that "sequel is worst than the original" rule in film.

Miss this one, cause you ain't missing much.
