Plot Summary

A discarded silk top hat becomes the focus of a struggle between a washed-up stage magician and a group of schoolchildren after it magically brings a snowman to life. Realizing that newly-living Frosty will melt in spring unless he takes refuge in a colder climate, Frosty and a young girl who he befriends stow away on a freight train headed for the north pole. Little do they know that the magician is following them, and he wants his hat back. This animated short is based on the popular Christmas song of the same name. Written by Steve Derby

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia June Foray provided the voices of Karen, the Teacher and the other children. However, starting with the third airing of the special, most of her recordings as Karen and the other children were replaced with the voices of actual young children. Her voice can still be heard in subsequent airings of the special in some of the other children's dialogue. No changes were made to the credits, so for many years the actual child actors remained unknown. However, in late 2017 sources started listing Suzanne Davidson, best known as"Susie" in the 1973 TV remake of MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET and as the first "Betsy" on AS THE WORLD TURNS as the later Karen voice.
