Frosty's Head was Blown Off

Frosty Fan

I'm a fan of Frosty the Snowman and have always been a fan. Frosty was my favorite Christmas cartoon and I still enjoy the cartoon, some 30 years later. I grew up in California where there was never any snow. It does snow in Arkansas though and my grandparents moved there from California.

Trip to Arkansas

One year my parents decided to take a trip to Arkansas to visit my grandparents. We drove all the way there and I don't remember much about the drive, other than driving though the desert and places called Bakersfield and Needles.

Snow!
Snow!

Snow! Building Frosty

While we were visiting my grandparents in Arkansas, it snowed about 5 inches. I had never seen snow and was totally excited. I figured out how to make a snowman and made one that looked just like Frosty, complete with a hat and corn cob pipe. I had to use a carrot for his nose though and I used two grapes for his eyes. I even put a scarf around his neck. I spent all day creating Frosty and was very proud of my creation.

Frosty's Decapitation

The next day I got up early in the morning and went to play with Frosty. When I saw Frosty, I was immediately scared. His head was missing. I asked my grandparents what happened to Frosty and my grandpa explained that someone shot Frosty with a shotgun and blew his head off. I asked him why and he said "I guess they don't like Frosty in Arkansas". I didn't have the nerve to rebuild Frosty. I just went around with teary eyes and collected his eyes, nose, pipe, hat, and scarf.

      That's some unforgettable experience - specially for a child. I'm glad it didn't in any way affected your fascination with Frosty, But did you find out if Frosty was really shotgunned?

      Yeah, I still like Frosty, but Frosty's decapitation was my first lasting impression of Arkansas. There's a rumor that my Gpa shot Frosty himself, but it's never been confirmed. I don't know why he would shoot Frosty...maybe he thought Frosty was a little "too gay" for the yard. Not sure. Thanks for dropping by, Cris A!

      LOL maybe it's about time to confront grandpa about the whole thing - you need closure. And if he really thought it was "too gay" - it might be the scarf that ticked him off! Of course now I jest. Anyway, thanks again for sharing this :D

      @John Z - glad I made you laugh. Don't worry about the trauma. I've recovered, but still occassionally have dreams of headless Frosty - j/k.

      @Frogdropping - I think I was about 8 or 9 a the time. Arkansas is an interesting place and I think they just like to shoot things there. Most of the signs on the road have been shot out with buckshot. Since most people have guns in their trucks, I guess its simple to grab the shotgun and do drivebys of road signs and snowmen!
