Frosty Returns is a beloved Christmas classic animated television special that first aired in 1992. Produced by Bill Melendez and directed by Evert Brown, the show stars John Goodman as the voice of Frosty the Snowman. The special was created as a sequel to the original Frosty the Snowman film, which was released in 1969.

The story centers around the town of Beansboro, where the young and precocious Holly DeCarlo, voiced by Elisabeth Moss, is trying to spread the holiday cheer. However, the town has fallen under the control of Mr. Twitchell, voiced by Brian Doyle-Murray, who runs a factory that produces a new holiday product called "Summer Wheeze," which is supposed to solve all of the town's winter problems.

However, Holly soon discovers that the product is causing significant harm to the environment and the townspeople. When Frosty comes to Beansboro to help Holly, he too becomes alarmed about the dangers of Summer Wheeze. Together, Holly and Frosty rally the town residents to stop Mr. Twitchell and save their winter wonderland.

Frosty Returns explores the themes of environmentalism, consumerism, and community building in a lighthearted and fun way that kids and adults can enjoy. While it features memorable characters and hilarious hijinks, it also has a deeper message about the importance of protecting our planet and working together as a community.

The animation style of Frosty Returns is a departure from the original film's traditional hand-drawn animation. Instead, it uses a mix of traditional animation and computer-generated graphics, giving the special a more modern look and feel. The animation is colorful, bright, and lively, with plenty of funny sight gags and visual jokes that will appeal to younger viewers.

John Goodman's performance as Frosty is one of the highlights of Frosty Returns. He brings an infectious energy and warmth to the character, capturing the whimsy and magic of the original Frosty the Snowman while adding his unique comedic touch. Elizabeth Moss also shines as the plucky and determined Holly, providing a much-needed counterbalance to Goodman's larger-than-life Frosty.

In addition to its memorable characters and social commentary, Frosty Returns also features a catchy soundtrack filled with holiday classics and original songs. The score was composed by Maury Laws, who also composed the music for the original Frosty the Snowman film, and epitomizes the spirit of Christmas with its joyous melodies and upbeat rhythms.

Overall, Frosty Returns is an entertaining and heartwarming holiday special that has stood the test of time. With its memorable characters, charming animation, catchy soundtrack, and important message, it's no wonder that it has become a beloved Christmas tradition for families all around the world. Whether you're watching it for the first time or revisiting an old favorite, Frosty Returns is sure to bring a smile to your face and warm your heart this holiday season.
