Frosty's Winter Wonderland~
From popular song to animated holiday classic, Frosty’s Winter Wonderland Deluxe Edition tells the story of the beloved snowman and how he meets his companion, Crystal. Andy Griffith, Shelley Winters and Jackie Vernon lend their voices to this captivating cartoon about the Snowman’s return to the children of a small town for a winter season of fun and games. But he’s lonely at night when left by himself and so the town’s children build a beautiful snowlady companion for him. Jealous of the attention given to Frosty, Jack Frost blows up a blizzard and swipes Frosty’s magical, life-giving hat. Only true love can bring Frosty back to his old, fun-loving self. Two songs that have proven to be enduring seasonal favorites highlight the soundtrack: “Frosty the Snowman” and “Winter Wonderland.

”Frosty’s Winter Wonderland Deluxe Edition includes a bonus feaurette titled Frosty and the Story of the Snowman. 

We watched these with the grandchildren and they were a great way to kick off the holiday season. As they were both family friendly and they loved them. The animations were awesome and I know that these 2 DVD's are going to be a family favorite. I loved seeing some of my old favorites such a Frosty and the Grinch and also enjoyed the new ones that I had not seen before.

I would recommend these to all~the grand-kids gave them both a A+!!
