Buddy Hackett narrates the story of Jack Frost, whom nobody ever sees ... except for the one time when he became human! When Jack Frost, the spirit of Winter, moves from the South Pole to enjoy wintertime with the children of January Junction, the children build a snow woman, Elisa, who warms Jack's heart. But Elisa cannot see the invisible Jack, so Father Winter grants Jack one season as a human. To remain human, Jack must find a horse, a home, a wife and a pot of gold. After battling the terrible Kubla Kraus, Jack has a home--a real castle. And with it comes gold and a horse. But Jack sees that Elisa loves a knight in shining armor. Realizing that his romantic winter has been a fantasy, Jack showers the newlyweds with springtime.

Minor Rankin-Bass classic with a touch of romance.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this isn't a Christmas tale per se, but a winter story that revolves around unrequited love and heroic acts, with a dollop of Russian peasant repression for good measure. Mild battle scenes occur, but their stop-action animation style prevent them from being too scary. An explanation of what a Russian Cossack is may be helpful to younger children in understanding the villain. Workers in Father Time's realm are called "gypsies."
