Rudolph & Frosty Pre-Rankin/Bass

Here we have two cartoons featuring the most famous Christmas characters around (not counting Santa and Jesus Christ, of course). These cartoons precede the famous Rankin/Bass creations by, well, quite a few years. The Rudolph cartoon was created by the renowned Fleischer Studios (animators of Popeye and Superman); I don't know the origin of the Frosty cartoon. They rock!

This great Frosty short comes from Columbia / UPA (United Productions of America), and was directed by Robert Cannon in 1954. UPA was probably most famous for the Gerald McBoing Boing, Dick Tracy, and Mr Magoo cartoons. Here's Frosty's IMDb link for more info:
