Twitchell's invented Summer Wheeze: a spray can that instantly removes snow and slush. And Beansborough's getting snow-free. And Holly has to keep Frosty from melting, and convince everybody that snow's actually a good thing. Written by Kathy Li. I think the biggest issue I have with this holiday perennial, is that it was obvious that the writers were trying to put together a script that appealed to kids on one level, and adults on another, not unlike Willy Wonka.
While this is certainly admirable to shoot for, it's very difficult to pull off and when it misses it can be quite painful to watch. This was no exception; it not only missed, but missed badly; consequently, much of this is completely unwatchable.
Additionally, the animation is poor. One of the producers is Bill Melendez, famous for his work on the Peanuts cartoons. Not coincidentally, the animation and the characters at times look like something out of a Peanuts cartoons.
Unfortunately, it captured none of the charm of even the least inspiring of the Peanuts cartoons. Not least of all, the music was tuneless and uninspiring.
It wasn't hummable, it wasn't memorable, it was just embarrassing. Why this continues to be shown every year opposite the original Frosty - in my mind one of the three best Christmas specials of all time - escapes me. If it were my call, I'd just run the original Frosty, twice. The Past Year Was What Does the Abbreviation W. Stand For? Who's the Coldest of the Cold?

How can you not love Frosty the Snowman? He is back and getting married to Crystal, but Jack Frost is jealous because Frosty is getting all the attention. Such a good cartoon, I watch it all the time!!! Always enjoyed Andy Griffith and fact Frosty and Mrs. Frosty makes it fun good classic to watch for any movie fan.
Frosty, like anyone, needs a companion, so the kids build Crystal. Although Jack Frost nearly spoils the upcoming wedding, all is resolved in classic storybook fashion, free of the "politically correct" garbage that plagues "Frosty Returns". It was too bad that episode was not included on the "Frosty" DVD. I loved this special where Frosty gets married! It is in the same style of animation, with most of the same voice talents as the first.
I am always annoyed that every year now they play Frosty with Frosty Returns instead of this. And didn't include this on the Frosty DVD! This is the one we want to see on the DVD! This is about a boy named Bob who goes on a canoe ride on April fools day. Frosty's Winter Wonderland Jack Frost Jack Bros.
