5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the finest Christmas films ever! November 20, 1998
Format:VHS Tape
Frosty the Snowman is simply superb! It's another of author Romeo Muller's 16 animated Christmas films--all of which are splendid and marvelous. Jimmy Durante is a most endearing narrator and singer here, and the enchanting story of Frosty is both humorous and heart-tugging. Watch it, and learn why there's magic in Christmas snow! You'll also enjoy the sequels by the same author, "Frosty's Winter Wonderland," narrated by Andy Griffith; and "Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July," narrated by Mickey Rooney as Santa Claus.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the BEST Family Oriented Films EVER MADE! May 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
No holiday film is more beloved and revered than Frosty the Snowman, other than Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the Grinch. This 1969 Masterpiece was written by the GREAT Romeo Muller, the GREATEST writer who ever lived, the man REALLY understood children. This film has a lot for both parents and children to enjoy. It has Jackie Vernon, giving warmth and kindness to Frosty the Snowman, Jimmy Durante as the EXCELLENT narrator, and Billy Dewolf as the SILLY Professor Hinkle (one of my all time favorite characters of Christmas Mythology.) This film also includes my personal favorite recording of ANY Christmas Song, the Jimmy Durante rendition of the title song. (I must recomend that you purchase the spliced version on CD.) You just can't go wrong with this film. A great one for children just seeing it for the first time, or for parents who grew up with it themselves. You must also buy the sequel, "Frosty's Winter Wonderland" and the semi sequel "Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July", both buy Romeo Muller. PLEASE AVOID THE PIECE OF GARBAGE CLAIMING TO BE A SEQUEL ENTITLED "FROSTY RETURNS", ALSO ISSUED BY GOLDEN BOOKS. IT IS A POOR PLOTLESS ATTEMPT AT A CHRISTMAS SPECIAL INDEED AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FROSTY THAT WE KNOW AND LOVE.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas classic December 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This delightful 1969 animation based on the popular song is a holiday treat that many of us grew up watching, and now we can share it with our children. By today's standards, the animation is crude, but the story is heartwarming and the narration and singing by Jimmy Durante make it a priceless treasure.
We are introduced to Frosty, a snowman made by some school children with a corncob pipe, two lumps of coal and a magician's hat that brings him to life. When the temperature starts to rise, Frosty hitches a ride on a freight train bound for the North Pole. However, the evil Professor Hinkle is hot on his trail to try to melt Frosty and get his hat back. Finally, Santa Claus saves the day.
My son is almost three years old and he loved this video. No doubt your child will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Christmas Classic December 26, 2010
Christmas is a time of tradition, whether from food, family, or fellowship. It is also the season when Hollywood tries to create their own traditions with the numerous "holiday specials" that clog the airways throughout the month of December. "Frosty the Snowman" is the cream of the crop.

The story is simple: A magic hat brings "Frosty" the snowman to life, after which he must travel to the North Pole to prevent being melted. Meanwhile, an evil magician is trying to redeem the hat for his own nefarious purposes.

Since 1951, children and adults alike have enjoyed this half-hour special. Kids will be sucked in by the magic and music, while adults may just find even their eyes welling up a bit when Frosty is threatened near the end.

Along with Claymation Rudolph, this TV special should be required watching around the holiday season.

3.0 out of 5 stars 1 Christmas classic and 1 Christmas dud October 4, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Frosty the Snowman:a wonderful Christmas classic!Beautiful
animation,wonderful storyline and unforgettable songs!This
is one of the timeless Rankin-Bass classics that should
be in every video or DVD collection!
Frosty Returns:A dud.The animation is sloppy and there is no plot.This story tries to be as good as the Rankin-Bass "Frosty",but falls flat on its face.This Frosty is just a fat snowman with no personaltiy and an annoying voice.My advice is to just watch the original "Frosty",and to just ignore this dull sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rankin/Bass Christmas classic!! December 29, 2011
We all know the song...and surely when that song comes to mind, this Christmas classic special comes to mind. Originally aired in 1969, this has become one of the seminal "Christmas Classics" along with other Rankin/Bass fare as Rudolph, Little Drummer Boy, and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.

Unlike the others, Frosty is hand drawn animation as opposed to the studio's typical stop-motion animated specials.

When a group of children, led by a girl named Karen, make use of a magical hat, that an inept magician (Professor Hinkle)has frustratingly thrown away..their school yard snowman becomes alive and ready to spread joy throughout the town. Awakening with his trademark "Happy Birthday", he becomes very close to Karen and her friends.

Unfortunately for Frosty, Professor Hinkle has other plans and seeks to reap the benefits of this magical hat for his own ends.

For 42 years, this has been among the dearest of Christmas specials and will likely remain so for years to come. As hard as many studios try to capture that Christmas audience by releasing a variety of themed holiday drek (Shrek??....really???), nothing will ever come close to Rankin/Bass and their series of specials.
