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

Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

Jurassic South Park
17 February 1999 | by (NC, USA) – See all my reviews

This is interesting for the way it shows a very early, very rough version of the show. The four principals are there, though not quite the same way we know them now. Collectors will love watching it, though the 1995 remake is funnier.
