The magic still in his old silk hat, the holiday season's perennially popular original dancing snowman continues his adventures and skates on the edge of danger in the animated musical special FROSTY RETURNS, to be rebroadcast Friday, Nov. 23 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 12/01/95.)
Jonathan Winters is the narrator, with John Goodman as the voice of Frosty. Other voices are provided by comedians Jan Hooks, Andrea Martin and Brian Doyle-Murray.
The first winter storm of the season brings the magical Frosty to the snow-covered town of Beansborough just as a new invention, a snow-removal spray called Summer Wheeze, is being introduced on the market. Not only does Summer Wheeze de-ice the town's annual Winter Carnival, it also threatens Frosty's very existence.
FROSTY RETURNS was produced by Eryk Casemiro and Bill Melendez and directed by Melendez and Evert Brown. Lorne Michaels ("Saturday Night Live") is executive producer. The special was written by Oliver Goldstick, based on a story by Jim Lewis, with original music by Mark Mothersbaugh. FROSTY RETURNS was created by Bill Melendez Productions, Inc., in association with Broadway Video and CBS Entertainment Productions.
(NOTE TO EDITORS: FROSTY RETURNS will be preceded by a broadcast of the classic holiday special "Frosty the Snowman" from 8:00 to 8:30 PM, ET/PT. See separate release.)
