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
The character that would normally be recognized as Eric Cartman from South Park (1997) (fat, with a red jacket and blue snow cap) is actually called Kenny in this precursor, and, as attached with the name, dies in the short. The character normally recognized as Kenny (the one with the orange parka) also dies, but goes unnamed. For Trey Parker's and Matt Stone's next short with the same characters, The Spirit of Christmas (1995), the characters are named as they are commonly known from the popular TV show. The reason for the name switches is unknown. See more »

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.
