FROSTY THE SNOWMAN
November 24, 2017  | By David Bianculli

CBS, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This Christmas special from the same decade – specifically, from 1969 – isn’t as good, and isn’t on my list of favorite TV Christmas specials. The writer, Romeo Muller, expands the popular holiday song into a passable narrative, as he had with another early TV holiday special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. But face it: Neither of those is A Charlie Brown Christmas. But at least Jimmy Durante narrates, which counts for something.
