Frosty the Snowman (1969)

frosty the snowman 1969Just to clarify: It’s usually a bad idea to allow tobacco-smoking strangers on the playground to take your children on train trips.

 

Frosty the Snowman has been a holiday staple for decades, and it proves successful films can be made based solely on a Christmas song, which is why I’m currently producing a movie called Mitt Hjerte Alltid Vanker.

The song “Frosty the Snowman” was first recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in 1950. (And “Mitt Hjerte Alltid Vanker” came out in 1732, so yeah…blockbuster in the making.) Also, this animated TV special was narrated by Jimmy Durante. He was a famous star from the golden age of Hollywood, but not everybody nose him.

OH, SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW: There is a 1992 sequel called Frosty Returns, where Frosty is up against a snow-sapping aerosol spray called “Summer Wheeze.” (Actually, scratch that. That’s an oh-something you would be better off not knowing.)

I don’t have much else to say. I just like snow.

I get that not everyone else likes it, and winter has its inconveniences for sure (Real-life example: It’s 10 degrees outside and our furnace died last night). Still, snow is a beautiful part of God’s creation and if we’re lucky enough to be around it, we should take the time to have some fun in it with family and friends.

See you next year, Frosty.

“God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise…by the breath of God frost is given…Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.” Job 37:5-14
