The Snowman Animated Short Film
The Snowman Charming British Animated Short Film
I love good animation! I discovered a charming British animated short film (it's just 23 minutes long) called The Snowman.
You and your small children should be entranced (I was) "by this story of a small boy in rural England whose lovingly constructed snowman comes to life and takes him on a magical journey flying over the white-blanketed landscapes in a beautiful 'raced' sequence based on live-action flying footage."
The Snowman introduced by David Bowie - 1982 Full 26 minute animation
"The Snowman" is a great British animated Cartoon/Film, based on the award winning children's novel "The Snowman" by Raymond Briggs

"An Academy Award Nominee (Best Animated Short Film, 1982), this delightful animation weaves a spell of magical enchantment as a young boy's snowman comes to life and escorts him on a magical flying visit to the North Pole. Absolutely superlative family enjoyment." ~Amazon
This is one of the very few Christmas tapes on the market that really deserves to be a holiday perennial, a gentle fable of friendship and the power of imagination. --David Chute
