When this movie was released in the U.S. it contained a tacked-on live-action prologue featuring TV personality Art Linkletter. He introduced the movie and recited a rhyme: "One snowflake, two / three snowflakes, four / now you'll see the Snow Queen / if you count a million more." When he finished the rhyme, the movie began.

Look, the snow is falling again, and every snowflake is like a little white bee.
Grandmother, tell us, where do these white bee snowflakes come from?
From the north. They fly here over cold seas, in icy winds, through blizzards and fogs. They are loyal servants of the Snow Queen.

BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 300 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA.
When the Snow Queen, a lonely and powerful fairy, kidnaps the human boy Kay, his best friend Gerda must overcome many obstacles on her journey to rescue him.
In this version that I saw it had live action footage with television icon Art Linkletter. This is the Soviet version of the Hans Christian Andersen tale. voices: Sandra Dee, Tommy Kirk lend their voices for the English version.
Since this is in public domain there is many versions of this version on DVD. Picture and sound varies!
