When I was growing up back in the seventies, I looked forward every Christmas to watching the Rudolph, Frosty, and Santa cartoons. Having this CD and listening to the music selections from the cartoons brings lots of memories back to mind. I love to hear these old favorites! This is a must have for anyone who remembers these cartoons as fondly as I do.

This is probably the best single cd overview of original recordings from holiday Christmas Specials, certainly of Rankin-Bass specials. It contains seven recordings from Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer like "Jingle Jangle Jingle" and "We're A Couple Of Misfits" (only the instrumental overture and finale are missing and they can be found on the Cd Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer that is erroneously credited to only Burl Ives). Also included here are Santa Claus Is Coming To Town's title track, "First Toymaker To The King," "No More Toymakers To The King," and the super delightful "Put One Foot In Front Of The Other". Frosty is represented by its Jimmy Durante-sung title track and the Little Drummer Boy special is represented by its title track as well.

The only significant holiday tv special recordings not included here are the nifty "Heat Miser" and "Snow Miser" from Rankin-Bass's Year Without A Santa Claus (you can find those on Nick At Nite's A Classic Cartoon Christmas Too) and A Charlie Brown Christmas' "Christmas Time Is Here," "Hark The Herald," and "O Tannenbaum" (available on Vince Guaraldi's Christmas cd and on Nick At Nite's A Classic Cartoon Christmas). Plus, "Welcome Christmas" and "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" from How The Grinch Stole Christmas (also found on A Classic Cartoon Christmas). All of these songs will make you feel like a kid again. Happy listening!

"Rudolph, Frosty and Friends Favorite Christmas Songs" is a fun little Christmas CD. It has a hodge-podge of hits from four Rankin/Bass Christmas specials ("Santa Claus is Coming to Town," "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer," "The Little Drummer Boy" and "Frosty the Snowman."), featuring such great Holiday singers as Burl Ives, Jimmy Durante and Fred Astair.
All of the songs are well done, and come straight off the soundtrack for the Christmas special. Rankin/Bass has always meant holiday fun, and this CD is no exception.
The only complaint about this CD is that it could have been better. Rankin/Bass has a treasure horde of Christmas songs, both traditional and original. Songs from "The Year Without a Santa Claus" would have been appreciated. For what it is, it is a good CD. But it could have been better.
Ah well, "Jingle, Jingle, Jingle, I can hear those sleigh bells ring, I am old Kris Kringle, I'm the king of jingle ling..."

Many favorite childhood songs are here on this disc. You can't help but feel better after listening to songs like "Put One Foot in Front of the Other" and "The Most Wonderful Day of the Year". It's also great fun to be able to share these terrific songs with your kids.
You'll play this one over and over.
You may even play it too much.

I was shopping this Holiday season and this CD was playing on the store's sound system. I tried to get them to sell it to me (It belonged to an employee) but I finally tracked it down. It was such a wonderful place to be: Out and about in the Christmas Season with this Rankin-Bass-fest filling the air with memories of a (now) thirty-something's childhood (1970's) Christmases. An absolute delight and despite the fact that it's thrown together from various Christmas specials, is more cohesive than most "mainstream" albums. Also, I now want to be a dentist!

"Rudolph, Frosty and Friends' Favorite Christmas Songs" is a compilation CD. It brings together a collection of songs from four installments in a popular series of animated holiday films. Specifically, the songs on this CD come from "Frosty the Snowman," "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," and "The Little Drummer Boy."
I have fond memories of watching those animated specials on television, so I really love this CD. The CD includes both familiar holiday standards, as well as songs which are specific to these animated films. Some show business legends sing several of the songs: Jimmy Durante ("Frosty the Snowman"), Fred Astaire ("Santa Claus is Comin' to Town"), and Burl Ives ("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and two others).
My favorite selections are the songs specific to the animated films and their characters: "Put One Foot in Front of the Other" (from "Santa Claus..."), a wonderful duet between Mickey Rooney and Keenan Wynn; "We're a Couple of Misfits" (from "Rudolph..."), sung by Billie Richards and Paul Soles; and more. A great CD for children, and for adults who still love these characters.

Classic Christmas songs. Can't go wrong. And not that anybody needed more info, but just how true it is that they are timeless - my parents grew up loving them, I grew up loving them, and my daughter and niece grew up loving them. If you don't? Something somewhere along the line didn't go well for you.
