Format: DVD
"Jack Frost" has always been one of my favorite Rankin/Bass Christmas specials. Because it was not aired as often as "Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer" or "Frosty the Snowman," there was always something special about it. It was more of a treat when I got to see it. Also, it had knights, castles and a steam-powered horse, which was a big bonus for me as a child.
This is an animagic production, with stop-motion puppets instead of cell animation. The story is winter-focused rather than Christmas focused. Jack Frost, an invisible elf who can never participate in the joy he brings to the humans, falls in love with a human girl. He petitions Father Winter to grant him humanity and give him the chance to win her love. The villain of the story is Kublah Krause, the Cossack King. He gets the best song. "I'm Kublah Krause, I could have been a Shogun, but there are no Samurai around here, there's the rub, there's the rub..."
The only holiday represented is Groundhog's Day, and the Groundhog himself (voiced by Buddy Hackett) makes an appearance. "I've got a day named after me, February 2..." Other characters include Holly the Snow Gypsy and Snip the Snowflake Cutter.
This DVD is a fairly frill-free production, and contains only the main feature. It was produced for stores to put in their "bargain DVD" racks. Still, the quality is great and there is no other DVD version of "Jack Frost" available. A definite must-have for the holidays.

This was the first of many Rankin/Bass holiday specials I saw on TV (the only ones I owned on video being the popular "Rudolph" and "Peter Cottontail.") I was pleased by this one too. In fact, I recall seeing part of it once last year on TV too--it also seems to be one of the more popular ones. Anyway, the idea that a girl is in love with "Jack Frost" and then Jack Frost, who's lonely, becomes human because he thinks she really loves him, was, I thought, quite adorable. So "Jack Snip" the tailor moves in with the girl's family. I liked the song they sang while unwrapping an empty box and pretending it was "just what they'd always wanted." It was sad, yet cute. Snip, the snowflake-maker, followed Jack to Earth to help him reach his human-like goals by spring and remain a human, and also to keep out of trouble. The story only began to drag a little when the "k-nights" came into it, and the snowed-in castle. In the end, the girl marries the man she truly loves, her "knight in golden armor." And of course, Jack Frost is present at her wedding. It's really a very nice tale.

"Jack Frost" tells the story of how the wintry sprite is transformed by his love for someone very special to him! And the great voice actor Paul Frees (best known as the voice of Boris Badenov in "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle") does an amazing job as the voice of the villain, Kubla Kraus. Don't miss him singing the "Rub-a-Dub" song! (Which is usually cut from TV broadcasts of this film.) "Jack Frost" is another extraordinary film by Romeo Muller, who also wrote the classic Animagic, Rankin/Bass Christmas films, "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Frosty the Snowman," among many other enchanting tales.

I grew up watching the Bass/Rankin holiday specials. They marked the beginning of the Christmas season and ramped up my anticipation for the big day. Without a doubt, Jack Frost is the best of the bunch. What a treat to find my special favourite available on dvd.
This story lacks all the sugary sweetness and perfect endings of the other stop animation holiday specials. As a child I was deeply touched by Jack's all too human struggle with the true meaning of love and his ultimate sacrfice for it. Something about Rudolph and his pity party with Hermie always annoyed me.
So if you are looking for something a little different, I would higly recommend this dvd.

It just isn't Christmas without the classic Rankin Bass holiday specials, and Jack Frost (not to be confused with the Michael Keaton or horror films of the same name) is the perfect film to welcome winter. Filled with the usual musical numbers, a celebrity narrator (Buddy Hackett as the ground hog) and two evil villans. Jack falls in love and wants to become human but it doesn't quite work out as planned. In fact, its almost a Shakespeare tragedy (without the death of the hero of course) by the time it ends. Nite quite a happy ending, but a wonderful adventure all the same. A note to fans of The Saint: Jack Frost has his own little whistled theme throughout the film.

This really is a Groundhog Day/winter video, not a Christmas one. With all the great Rankin/Bass classics there is no need to squeeze this into your Christmas collection; rather, keep it hidden until Groundhog Day to whip up some more holiday fun. I just showed the movie to a class of third graders and they really liked it, but the ending did shock them and pretty much went over their heads (as did half the humor in the show). Nevertheless they laughed at "Dommy" and all the bad guys and pretty much followed it all the way through. Basically, it's a fun video and you can't go wrong with Rankin/Bass and Buddy Hackett tunes.
