Voices Of Jimmy Durante, Jackie Vernon. The Original Celebrated Holiday Classic Brings Plenty Of Yuletide Cheer With The Hot And Cold" Story Of The Jolly Happy Soul. Animated. 1969/Color/30 Min/Nr/Fullscreen.
Jimmy Durante narrates this Christmas story that is based on the song of the same name. To make up for the fact that her students are in school on Christmas Eve, the local schoolteacher hires the magician Professor Hinkle to entertain the kids. Unfortunately, he's not a very good magician. Frustrated in his attempt to pull a rabbit out of his hat, he throws it away in anger. Outside, the kids build a snowman (what to call it? Harold? Oatmeal? Frosty!), and when the hat blows onto it, the snowman comes to life. Professor Hinkle decides he wants the hat back so he can make money off of its newfound magical properties, but the kids want to save Frosty. When the temperature starts to rise, a new problem threatens Frosty's existence. Karen, the leader of the children, comes up with a plan to save him: take him on a train to the North Pole, where it's always cold. With a cameo by Santa Claus and the promise of Frosty's return every year, this story of life, death, and holiday cheer is glazed with the sweet frosting of hope and happiness. A true holiday classic. --Andy Spletzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Andrew’s Blu-ray Review: Unlike their other holiday specials, which used stop motion puppetry, Arthur Rankin Jr. and Jules Bass employed tradition 2D cell animation for ‘FROSTY THE SNOWMAN’ and the style of the animation for ‘FROSTY THE SNOWMAN’ is quite charming, since the filmmakers were aiming for the look of a greeting card brought to life, sort of like the story’s protagonist Frosty. The plot of ‘FROSTY THE SNOWMAN’ utilises the popular Christmas song as the inspiration for this animated tale. Taking place on Christmas Eve, ‘FROSTY THE SNOWMAN’ tells the story of a group of children that are being entertained in school by a third rate magician named Professor Hinkle.Read more ›
While the other Rankin / Bass holiday movies such as RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER and SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN, are filmed with clay-type animation, FROSTY THE SNOWMAN is not. It is done simply in the form of a regular cartoon, and even so, it is still one of the most enjoyable holiday movies for children of all ages. Frosty is a kind snowman who wants to please the children more than anything. Karen (the main child chracter) loves Frosty so much, and will do anything to help him. And Hocus (the rabbit who belongs to the evil magician) is very imaginative and intelligent. As well as a hilarious addition to the cast. A must-have movie for all this holiday season.
Some parts are sad like when Frosty melts in the green house, Jimmy Durante does a wonderful job of narration and singing. It gets emotional at the end when He sings "Frosty the snowman had to hurry on his way, but he waved good bye saying don't you cry. I'll be back on Christmas Day!"

The song is cheerful all on its own, but when coupled with this fine 50-minute holiday classic movie, the song holds its own against "Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Read morePublished on May 10 2014 by AJ Mittendorf
