“Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul, with a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the Snowman is a fairytale they say. He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found, for when they placed it on his head he began to dance around.”
“Frosty the Snowman” by Gene Autry, 1950

Following the success of the song “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” country artist Gene Autry recorded “Frosty the Snowman.”

This song recounts the tale of a snowman brought to life by a magical hat. He plays with the children until the sun becomes too hot and he has to leave.

Frosty the Snowman was adapted into a Little Golden Book in 1950, and a cartoon film in 1969, to be followed by several sequels, including Frosty’s Winter Wonderland, Rudolph and Frosty’s Christmas in July, and The Legend of Frosty the Snowman.

In the first sequel, Frosty gets married to Crystal the snow-woman and has two snow-children.

A three-minute black and white Frosty the Snowman cartoon has been a Christmas staple for WGN-TV since 1955.

Two cities in New York – White Plains and Armonk – have laid claim to Frosty as his “home town.” In fact, Armonk hosts an annual parade dedicated to Frosty.
