Winter has finally arrived in our little pocket of the world, friends, and so on this episode we dive into the Rankin/Bass tale of Jack Frost! There are many Jack Frosts in the world, but this is the only one that features steampunk horses, climate-induced poverty, and a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table who has a summer cottage somewhere on the Eurasian Steppe.
This is a very…strange cartoon. So strange, in fact, that Jack Frost clearly wasn’t cool enough to carry this thing on his own, so they introduced a groundhog voiced by Buddy Hackett. That’s right! Star of Disney’s The Love Bug, Buddy Hackett!! Wow!
