Product Description

Jack Frost: Deluxe Edition (1979)

Amazon.com

A 1979 Rankin-Bass, stop-motion animated program similar to Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Jack Frost is a classic winter tale of good and evil, hope and despair, and love and sacrifice that will captivate viewers 5 and older. Narrated by Pardon-me-Pete Groundhog (Buddy Hackett) and framed as an exploration of the tradition of Groundhog Day, the music-filled Jack Frost is actually the story of young sprite Jack Frost who, under Father Winter’s leadership, is responsible for bringing winter weather to the world. Felt, but never seen, a lonely Jack begs to become human when he falls in love with January Junction resident Elisa. Father Winter grudgingly grants Jack Frost a winter of humanity, warning that in order to remain human forever, he must acquire the four essentials of a home, horse, bag of gold, and wife by springtime. Finding these essentials requires that Jack Frost overthrow the evil King of the Cossacks Kubla Kraus, a mission that is difficult and dangerous. Even with the help of fellow sprites Snip the snowflake maker and Holly the snowflake gypsy, Jack must make a very significant personal sacrifice in order to remove Kubla Kraus from power and ensure the continued well-being of Elisa and January Junction. Bonus features include three "Totally Cool Crafty Creations" with Francine Flake (cutting snowflakes, making a snow globe, and creating instant snow) and the three sing-along-songs ("Jack Frost," "Just What I Always Wanted," and "The Groundhog Song") accompanied by movie footage and onscreen lyrics. --Tami Horiuchi

"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.

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.

When I rediscovered this little gem only recently (around the 2004 Christmas holiday season), I fell in love with it all over again. This animation is unique among the Rankin/Bass holiday specials, in that it has more of a fairytale/folklore style story (Christmas is only a background theme). It is still very suitable for a Christmas special, but very enjoyable to watch anytime of the year. I remember having seen it on television years ago as a tiny child, but I welcome it into my life even now.

This program would be appropriate for children or adults who appreciate fantasy (or specifically Rankin/Bass animation).
