Frosty’s Winter Wonderland is the magical animated Christmas television special produced in 1976 by legendary animation makers, Rankin-Bass. Written by Romeo Muller, it is a sequel to the 1969 Frosty the Snowman special. Narration is provided by Andy Griffith and Jackie Vernon reprised his role as the voice of Frosty, giving the special a sense of continuity.
The special picks up where the original Frost story left off and tells the tale of how a lonely Frosty find the love of his life. This is a much “truer” and heartfelt sequel to the tale of Frosty, than the latter day Frosty Returns. I don’t want to say anything bad about Frosty Returns, so…
Frosty’s Winter Wonderland along with the original Frosty the Snowman are treasured classics that you will return to year after year. They can be enjoyed as an adult or with your children and grandchildren, which make the new release of Frosty’s Winter Wonderland a must own addition to your holiday DVD collection. So make sure you pick up your copy soon.
Oh and if you need more of a Frosty fix and like me cannot get that fix from a certain 2007 special, make sure to drop by and check out the Frosty the Snowman fan and activity site.
