Frosty the Snowman (1954)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This timeless short originally aired on a Chicago station and has since become a favorite to many. At just under 3-minutes there's really no story being told outside of the song itself. We see a group of kids dancing around the snowman and as soon as they put the hat on him he begins to dance as well. There are so many Christmas shorts out there that one could get lost in trying to track all of them down but many are very much worth it and that's the case with this one. I think most people are going to be familiar with the more recent, color films but seeing a Christmas cartoon in B&W just adds a timeless quality to it. I really loved the animation here and especially the look of Frosty. I hope this comes out the right way but he looks like what a real snowman would look like if a bunch of kids just put it together in the back yard. In many Frosty cartoons he looks like, well, a fake cartoon but in this version he really does look like a snowman.
