Product Description & Reviews
You better not pout, you better not cry, 'cause soundtracks to two of the most beloved Christmas TV specials are coming to your town! Santa Claus , of course, was told and sung and narrated by Fred Astaire and also stars the voices of Mickey Rooney and Keenan Wynn, while the inimitable Jimmy Durante lends his storytelling and musical talents to Frosty . Out of print for years! Two favorite holiday TV specials--Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town (1970) and Frosty the Snowman (1969)--have burned their endearing images, stories, and music into the consciousness of kids for decades. The creators of these warm, wonderful stop-motion animated films, Arthur Rankin Jr. and Jules Bass, as well as writer Romeo Muller, have become legends in the "Animagic" world. Now, both soundtrack recordings (originally produced by Bass and Maury Laws) have been captured on one CD, and not just the musical scores, but with the dialogue and sound effects as well, much like an old-fashioned radio show. Santa Claus, narrated and sung by Fred Astaire, spins the tale of Kris Kringle's early days. Beloved classics from "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" (based on J. Fred Coots and Haven Gillespie's song) to "Put One Foot in Front of the Other" will send you down memory lane. Frosty, narrated and sung by the unforgettable Jimmy Durante, tells the story of frustrated magician Professor Hinkle, who wants to pluck the magical hat from atop the head of Frosty the Snowman. But Frosty (played by Jackie Vernon) has bigger problems. Can Karen and her friends save the day... and Frosty's life? This positively historical holiday release of two beloved soundtracks will be treasured by generations. --Karin Snelson
