Plot Synopsis

In this 30-minute animated special, Karen and her friends build a snowman named Frosty and bring the lifeless snow figure to life with a stovepipe hat discarded by the villainous Prof. Hinkle, who tries to recover his hat by pursuing Karen, Frosty and his own rabbit, Hocus Pocus, as they head to the North Pole to prevent the "jolly, happy soul" from melting. En route, the indomitable snowman weathers a whirl of adventures and overcomes the threat of evaporation. Based on the popular song of the same title by Jack Rollins and Steve Nelson about the happy-go-lucky snowman with the "corncob pipe, a button nose and two eyes made out of coal."
