(upbeat whimsical music)
(bells jingling) – I suppose it all started with the snow. You see, it was a very
special kind of snow. A snow to make the happy happier
and the giddy even giddier. A snow to make a homecoming homier and natural enemies friends, naturally. For it was the first snow of the season. And as any child can tell you, there’s a certain magic
to the very first snow. Especially when it falls on
the day before Christmas. For when the first snow
is also a Christmas snow, (laughs) well, something
wonderful is bound to happen! (children laughing) (ruler tapping) – Children, back to your seats. The snow can wait. (kids groaning) Now, now. I’ve hired Professor Hinkle, the magician, to entertain at today’s
class Christmas party, so pay attention! (Hinkle clears throat) – [Narrator] Now, Professor
Hinkle was just about the worst magician in the world. (tricks clanging) (slow perky music) – And so, I put the
magic eggs into my hat. Abracadabra, to coin a phrase (laughing). And voila, the eggs have turned into… Messy, messy, messy.
(children groan) Where is that rabbit? Hocus Pocus! Where are you? Bah, the only thing this hat’s
good for is the trash can! (Hocus Pocus springing) (fast paced music) (children laugh) (school bell rings) (children cheering) – You desert Hinkle the, ouch! For some stupid, ow! Frozen water? – Hey, look at the snow outside! – It’s cold and snowy! – Yeah, it’s the best kind of snow too! – I like snow! Yeah. See, snow! – We’re building a snowman, Karen. – You make the head! – The head is the most
difficult part, ask anyone! – What will we call him? – Yeah, shall we call him Harold? (boy mumbles) – Nah. – Christopher Columbus. – Oh, No. Oatmeal? – [All] Oatmeal? – How about, Frosty? – Frosty? – Yeah, Frosty it is! Frosty the snowman! (kids cheering) ♪ Frosty the snowman,
what a happy, jolly soul ♪ ♪ With a corn-cob pipe and a button nose ♪ ♪ And two eyes made out of coal ♪ ♪ Frosty the snow ♪ – [Hinkle] Come back here, you! (fast paced music) (rustling winds) – Happy birthday! – That hat brought Frosty to life! It must be magic! – Magic? My hat, magic? – Just look! (rustling winds) – If that hat is magic, I want it back. – But it’s not yours anymore! You threw it away! – Don’t talk back to your elders, you naughty naughty little girl. And you, stay in there, or there’ll be no carrots for Christmas! – But you can’t take that hat back, it brought Frosty to life. – You saw it happen! – I saw nothing of the kind. (Hocus Pocus tsking) Quiet. I can’t lose that hat if
it’s really got magic now. It’ll make me a millionaire magician! – But we saw Frosty
come to life, didn’t we? – [Boys] Uh-huh, we sure did. – You silly children
believe everything you see! When you’re grown up you’ll realise that snowmen can’t come to life. – But we– – Silly, silly silly! (solemn music) – Aw, Frosty, we don’t
care what grown-ups say, we know you did come to life. – We know, Frosty. We just know. ♪ Frosty the snowman,

was entirely in the right in what he was about to do. (Hocus Pocus zipping) Well, Hocus Pocus raced
back to the children just as fast as he could. (tense music) (Hocus Pocus whistles) – Look! The hat’s back! Let’s see if it will
make Frosty alive again. (chimes chiming) – Happy Birthday!
(kids gasping) Hey, I said my first words. But, but snowmen can’t talk. (Frosty giggling) Alright, come on now, what’s the joke? Could I really be alive? I mean, I can make words, I can move, (ground rumbling) I can juggle, I can sweep, I can count to 10. One, two, three, four, five, nine, six, eight, well I can count to five. (Frosty laughing) What do you know? I’m even ticklish. In fact, I’m all living! I am alive! What a neat thing to happen

thermometer gets all reddish, the temperature goes up. And when the temperature
goes up, I start to melt. And when I start to melt, I get all wishy washy! – Then you’ve gotta go some
place where you’ll never melt. – The only place I’d never
melt is the North Pole. – Then we’ve got to get you there! – Yeah, we’ll take you downtown
to the railroad station– – And put you on a train! – Great, I always wanted to see the town. Let’s make a party out of it! Let’s have a parade! (marching music)

much about such things. – Oh, well, okay, if he just came to life. (whistle blows) Move along! That silly snowman. Once they come to life
they don’t know nothing. Come to life?! (officer gulps and whistles) (tense music) (marching music) (train bell ringing) (clerk snoring) – We’d like a ticket to
the North Pole, please. – Hmm? What? The North Pole? Oh, yes ma’am. (clerk clanging) Route you by the way of
Saskatchewan, Hudson Bay, Nome Alaska, the Klondike,
and Aurora borealis! Gotta make a change at
Nanuk of the Northville. That’ll be $3,000.04, including tax. – Oh, but we don’t have any money. – No money!? (tickets clanging) No money, no ticket! (window slams) (solemn music) – Now I’ll never get to the North Pole. – Oh, Frosty, you just can’t melt! – Oh, Karen, don’t you get all slushy too. (Hocus Pocus springing) – What is it, Hocus? Out the window? A refrigerated boxcar
on a train headed north! You’ll be safe there, Frosty! Come on! – [Boy] It’s full of ice cream
and frozen Christmas cakes! – What a neat way to travel! (train whistle blows) – Hurry up, Frosty, the
train is pulling out! – Are you coming to the North Pole, too? – I’m sure my mother won’t mind, as long as I’m home in time for supper. (train whistle blows) (train chugging) ♪ Frosty the snowman had
to hurry on his way ♪ ♪ But he waved goodbye saying don’t cry ♪ ♪ I’ll be back again some day ♪ – I must get that hat back! Think, nasty, think, nasty, think nasty. (Hinkle laughing) ♪ He’ll be back again some day ♪ (train whistle blowing) – [Narrator] Now actually,
a refrigerated boxcar is a splendid way to travel. Splendid that is, if one is a snowman or
a furry coated rabbit. But for Karen… (teeth chattering) (Karen sneezes) – Are you cold, Karen? Now that’s a silly question. You wouldn’t be sneezing
if you weren’t cold. – Well, just, just a little. (Karen sneezes) – [Narrator] Frosty realised
that Karen had to get out of that car as soon as possible. So when the little freight train stopped to let an express full of happy
Christmas travellers pass, Frosty took advantage of the opportunity and quickly got them all off. – Oh, you tricked me! No fair!
(train whistle blowing) – [Narrator] The only thing
professor Hinkle could do was make a jump for it. (Hinkle clanging) (howling wind) Frosty wanted to get
as far away as he could before Hinkle woke up. (teeth chattering) (Karen sneezing) But the woods through which they travelled were still bitterly cold. – Hocus, I’ve got to
get Karen all warmed up or she’s a goner! (Hocus Pocus snickering) I can’t make a fire. Oh boy, that’s one
thing I really can’t do. I guess we just better keep moving until we find somebody who can. – [Narrator] Then suddenly
they came upon a tiny glen which seemed almost magical.
(chimes chiming) For it was Christmas Eve
(birds chirping) and the woodland animals
were all decorating for their big celebration. They knew Santa was to come that night and they wanted everything
to be just right. – Hocus, speak to the animals. See if they won’t all pitch
in and build a fire for Karen. (light gentle music) (Hocus Pocus snickering) – [Narrator] The animals
were delighted to help. So they found a spot away from the glen where the fire wouldn’t
catch on to the trees. Soon there was a spark, and in almost no time
(fire crackling) a splendid fire was crackling away. (upbeat music) Frosty was careful to stay
far away from the flames. – Hocus, we’ve got to find someone to help Karen get home before she freezes. And me to the North Pole
before I melt, but who? (marching music) No, not the Marines. No, not the President
of the United States. Oh, they were both swell ideas, but we’ve got to find someone nearby. (bells ringing) Yeah, Santa Claus! That’s a great idea! Why didn’t I think of that before? (Hocus Pocus squeaking) Hocus, you go back with the animals and when Santa comes,
you bring him right here. Understand? Hurry now! (slow paced music) – [Narrator] And so Frosty
kept a silent vigil, waiting patiently all through the night until Santa would arrive. But suddenly– – Oh, a campfire. Well isn’t that all snug and comfy? (Hinkle laughing) (Hinkle exhales deeply) – No! Don’t! – Now give me that hat or else! – Or else what? – Well don’t bother me with
details, give me that hat! – Get on my shoulders, Karen! – [Narrator] You see, Frosty,
(tense music) since he was made of snow himself, was the fastest
belly-whopper in the world. (fast paced music) And old professor Hinkle
was soon far outdistanced. And now it was Frosty’s good fortune that right at the bottom of the hill was a tiny greenhouse used to grow precious tropical
poinsettias for Christmas. – It’s got to be all warm and snug inside for those Christmas flowers
to grow so beautiful. Let’s go in. – Oh, but, but you will melt! – Just a little. I’ll only stay inside for a minute. Besides, I’ve been meaning to take off a little weight anyway. Whew, stay in here much longer and I’ll really make
a splash in the world. (Karen giggling) (heavy breathing) (door slams) – Now I’ve got you! And the minute you’re all
melted the hat will be mine! (Hinkle laughing) (bells jingling) – [Narrator] Santa had
arrived, but was he too late? (Hocus Pocus squeaking) Hocus explained the situation to Santa, who, as you know, speaks a fluent rabbit. And when they didn’t find
Frosty and Karen on the hill, Santa followed Frosty’s path
in the snow to the greenhouse. But when they got inside,
(solemn music) a terrible sight met their eyes. (Karen weeping) ♪ Frosty the snowman ♪ ♪ Was a happy, jolly soul ♪ ♪ With a corn-cob pipe ♪ ♪ And a button nose ♪ ♪ And two eyes made out of coal ♪ They were too late. (Karen weeping) – Too late? Why, nonsense! Oh, don’t cry, Karen. Frosty’s not gone for good. You see, he was made out of Christmas snow and Christmas snow can
never disappear completely. (Santa chuckles) Oh, it sometimes goes away
for almost a year at a time and takes the form of
Spring and Summer rain, but you can bet your boots, that when a good jolly
December wind kisses it, it will turn into Christmas
snow all over again! – Yes, but, he was my friend. (Santa chuckles)
(chiming music) – Just watch. (rustling winds)
(upbeat music) – Wait a minute! I want that hat and I want it now! – Don’t you dare touch that! – And just what are you
going to do about it? – If you so much as lay
a finger on the brim, I’ll never bring you
another Christmas present as long as you live. – Never? – Never! – No more trick cards or magic balls or– – No more anything. – Oh, that’s not fair.
(can clanking) I mean, we evil magicians
have to make a living too. – Now you go home and write “I am very sorry for what I did to Frosty” 100 zillion times. And then maybe, just maybe mind you, you’ll find something in your
stocking tomorrow morning. – A new hat maybe? Oh, yes sir! Goodbye everyone! Sorry to lose and run, but
I’ve got to get busy writing. Busy, busy, busy! (Santa chuckling) – Come on, Frosty, we’re
all waiting for you. – Happy birthday! ♪ Frosty the snowman is
a fairy-tale they say ♪ ♪ He was made of snow
but the children know ♪ ♪ How he came to life one day ♪ – And so Santa took Karen home and made ready to bring
Frosty back to the North Pole. (Karen gasped) Karen hated to say goodbye to Frosty, but as Santa promised, Frosty returned every year with
the magical Christmas snow. And every year there
was a great celebration with a big Christmas parade.
