Frosty the snowman

Isn't it ironical that the most popular Christmas jingles have no mention of the Christmas in them? Think about 'Jingle bells' or hear 'Frosty the Snowman'. The later is a song about a snowman Frosty who comes to life by a magical hat that the children put on him and after some playful adventures “hurry on his way.” The writers of this song was Walter “Jack” Rollins and Steve Nelson and it was recorded by Gene Autry and Cass County boys in 1950. Here you can find the lyrics if anyone wants to learn it.
Can anyone please provide me with the original animated video of the song?

Are you looking for the 1960's animated cartoon 'Frosty the Snowman'? If so, you should be able to get it on Amazon. Here is the link for Frosty the Snowman and Frosty Returns DVD set

I think it is interesting that the music in question is perceived as Christmas music. In actuality they are more like winter songs which have been commercialized by commercial Christmas. I suppose in the northern hemisphere Christmas and winter are now synonymous which is why we are lead to think that way. Perhaps in the southern hemisphere they play many of those songs in what would be our summer months, just because those months coincide with cold and snow down under.

I was looking for the year "Frosty" was written and I found it here on your blog. By chance, I just saw the original animated Frosty on YouTube today:
