Frosty Returns is a 1992 animated television special that aired on CBS. It stars Jonathan Winters as the narrator and John Goodman as Frosty The Snowman.

Bad Qualities

  1. The title is misleading. The Frosty in this special is not the same as the Rankin/Bass version and has nothing to do with the previous films whatsoever.
  2. The plot is weak.
  3. The animation is a downgrade from the previous two Frosty films and the characters look way too much like the Peanuts characters.
    • Ironically, Bill Melendez was one of the directors of this special.
  4. Neither Christmas nor Santa Claus are ever mentioned in this special. Instead, the characters have a winter carnival.
  5. Many instances of Frosty taking his hat off (the thing that keeps him alive in the previous movies) and still being alive.
  6. There is a scene of the kids randomly hating snow for no reason, when earlier in the movie, they enjoyed snow.
  7. Karen and the children from the previous special appear nowhere in this one.
    • Professor Hinkle, the magician and former main antagonist from the first Frosty special doesn't appear anywhere either, although he redeemed himself.
  8. Bad music that sounds like it's from Rugrats; in fact, it was composed by Mark Mothersbaugh.

Good Qualities

  1. The voice acting is decent.
  2. The songs are pretty good.
  3. The scene where Twitchell, the main antagonist, broke the fourth wall by turning to the camera ordering the producers to stop the music (which was a soundtrack used when Frosty and the kids danced) after telling the driver to stop the van was funny.
