Jimmy Durante famously narrated Frosty the Snowman (1969) and sung one of the most memorable renditions of the song that served as the TV special's basis. However, although he was still alive during the production of Frosty's Winter Wonderland (1976), he was 83 and had retired from performing after having suffered a stroke that left him wheelchair-bound. Andy Griffith took his place. See more »
This is the Frosty the Snowman sequel that I remember. It's not the cheesy "Frosty Returns" that is so sappy about the environment. I mean, come on, it's a Christmas special, and a thing to look forward to. I groan every time Frosty Returns comes on because I know it is not this movie, the original sequel to Frosty the Snowman. I don't know who decided to let the other have precedence, but whoever did needs to be fired or shot, whichever is more painful. In this delightful tale, the children realize that Frosty is lonely and they decide to make a "wife" for him. They get married, but will they live happily ever after? Not if Jack Frost has anything to say about it! Enjoy this one if you ever get to see it.
