FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, featuring the voice of Jimmy Durante as narrator and Jackie Vernon as Frosty, first aired on CBS on December 7, 1969; tonight it will have its 40th annual telecast. And let’s face it: Christmas isn’t complete without Frosty!
Kids build a snowman and as a finishing touch, they adorn it with a tophat discarded by a magician. When the magician, who had considered himself a failure, discovers the hat’s power, he snatches it away, and the kids have to figure out a way to get it back before Frosty melts!
Then at 8:30pm, CBS’s FROSTY RETURNS brings more adventures of the snowman brought to life. This time around, Jonathan Winters narrates and Frosty is voiced by John Goodman. FROSTY RETURNS first aired on December 1, 1995.
This time, Frosty must battle the eveil Mr. Twitchell, who has created a spray to make snow disappear.
Enjoy the two great Christmas classics tonight on LIVE 5 WCSC. And we wish you all a Merry Christmas!
