Best of the Animated Sequels of Christmas Cartoon
3 September 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

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.

Rankin-Bass ran out of Christmas songs that they could turn into Christmas Specials. So in the 1970's they made sequels to "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer", "The Little Drummer Boy" and of course this sequel to "Frosty the Snowman" this is called "Frosty's Winter Wonderland". Now there isn't much of a story so they incorporated the song "Winter Wonderland" into this special to mixed results.

What this cartoon was missing was Karen (The little girl who helps Frosty in the Original) and Santa Claus. What we get is Jack Frost who is presented here in this cartoon for the first time. Later he would get his own Television Special.

In this story Years have passed since Frosty left for the North Pole. However he does keep his promise to the children that he would be back again someday. When he hears the news about the first snowfall of the season, he comes back to the children. The children are excited to hear about Frosty's return and are overjoyed when he comes back to play with them. Later on the children make Frosty a wife. All this attention to Frosty makes "Jack Frost" jealous. What happens next you just have to see.

Of all the sequels made to the original animated Christmas classics this one is the best but it still lacks the charm of the original. It is however still enjoyable but not very memorable.
