Your Mental Sorbet: Frosty the Snowman

Here is another "Mental Sorbet" that we could use to momentarily forget about those things that leave a bad taste in our mouths.

In 1969, the Rankin-Bass company produced a thirty-minute animated television special of Frosty the Snowman that featured the voices of comedians Jimmy Durante as narrator and Jackie Vernon as the title character. Two sequels were produced, Frosty's Winter Wonderland (based upon the song Winter Wonderland) in 1976 and Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July in 1979, followed by The Legend of Frosty the Snowman many years later, in 2005. A derivative work, Frosty Returns, was broadcast on CBS in 1992.

Stay Tuned
