Do you remember when… Santa asked Rudolph to guide his sleigh, Frosty magically came to life on Christmas Eve and Kris Kringle became Santa Claus?   Share the magic of The Original Christmas Classics featuring Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, Frosty the Snowman and Frosty Returns on Blu-ray for the first time!

This collection of children's holiday classics includes the perennial stop-motion favorite RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, featuring the voice of Burl Ives, who narrates the story of a misfit reindeer; SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN, featuring the voice of Fred Astaire, who narrates the tale of Kris Kringle's determination to give toys to the needy children of Sombertown; and FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, featuring the voice of Jimmy Durante, who narrates the journey of a Snowman come-to-life as he makes his way to the North Pole. Also included is FROSTY RETURNS, the 1992 follow-up to FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, featuring the voice of actor John Goodman.

Our Thoughts

On this snowy morning (yes today Saturday Nov 27th!), we sat down as a family and enjoyed watching a classic that both my husband and I used to watch often during the Christmas season when we were younger.    Frosty the Snowman brought back memories of watching this movie whenever it came up on television when we were younger.

Now my kids can enjoy this classic show as well as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.    After we watched the original Frosty movie, we decided to watch the follow-up movie that was made in 1992.   Frosty Returns was a disappointment for my husband and I.   Not sure what we were expecting but the story didn’t grab our attention.  Even my nine years old son wasn’t impressed.   It was just not the same as the original.  The cartoons of Frosty Returns reminded me of the Charlie Brown Christmas movie.

If you grew up in the 70s and early 80s, you will remember these fun cartoons that came every year on the television during Christmas time.    They are so clean that you can trust them to be entertaining without worrying about the content with your own kids.   If you enjoyed these when  you are younger, why not introducing your kids to them?    It would be a great family time to spend together.   I am looking forward to watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town with my kids in the weeks to come.

For the first time, these classics are now available in a blu-ray format.   For more details go to

  1. We love these classics and it seems when I bring out the Christmas video/music storage box, it is these classics that get the kids ooohing and aaaahing.
