He’s the best friend winter ever had, a truly fun being who has graced us his presence since 1969. He is one cool dude. He is Frosty The Snowman.
Some schoolkids build a snowman which comes to life when a hat discarded by a failure of a magician comes into their possession. Much fun is had. Then the temperature starts going up.
Who tells us this great story? None other than the immortal Jimmy Durante. Older kids might remember him singing the end song to the film Sleepless In Seattle. Definitely a unique sound.
Without giving anything away, the ending jumps from sad to happy so quickly, we feel so much for Frosty and his friend. Magic, from hats or otherwise, is such a wonderful thing.
Frosty The Snowman is always considered one of the best Christmas specials of all time. This is no surprise. Frosty is a great friend.
P.S. Frosty The Snowman is copyright 2012 to Rankin Bass.
P.P.S. It is 17 days till Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
