THE PLOT:

It's almost Christmas time again and Frosty is excited to his friends again. But he's also lonely. Being the only living snowman in the world.

Seeing his depression the kids build Frosty a snow wife, naming her Crystal the power of love brings her to life. But a jelious Jack Frost is out to ruin the happy couple's wedding.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I got to admit that this is a perfect sequel to the FROSTY THE SNOWMAN tale. Narrated this time by Andy Griffith and with Shelly Winters as the voice of Crystal, it's the perfect addition to the story of Frosty the Snowman. Now I got to admit, the animation took a slight downgrade from the first cartoon and has a 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE Christmas look to it. But even the slightly less then perfect animation isn't dampening my fondness for this series of movies, in my book RANKIN AND BASS does it again. The story is cool, the voice talents is cool, the music is cool, the humor is cool. Other then the animation I can't think of one bad thing to say about this holiday special. Again, if you aren't into Christmas this isn't for you. I give it 10 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree, Frosty has always been one of my favorite characters and this sequel keeps to the spirit of the song and the first special. I got to admit I am happy with this special, ignoring the slight animation downgrade. 10 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (A new story and new characters make this a fun continuation.)
+ FROSTY (Frost is Frosty.)
+ CRYSTAL (Crystal is a cool new edition to the Frosty family.)
+ CAST (Great cast doing great voice over work.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- ANIMATION (Neither of us liked the downgrade in animation. But we overlooked it.)

...AND FINALLY...

- NOT FOR EVERYONE (If you don't celebrate Christmas, then this isn't for you.)
