There was an option to watch Frosty Returns. Huh. I don't think I've seen Frosty Returns. So I push play and the fun begins. It doesn't take long before I realize that I have seen this before and why it was I erased it quickly from my brain data bank. I suppose its probably not that big of a deal to some, but I think my eyeballs about popped out of my head. Not in horror, or disgust necessarily, but in a very awkward, "what did she just say" kinda way.
Within the first five minutes, we're introduced to two characters, a little girl and her friend Charles. It's snow day! Charles enters the little girls house and asks her why she's not outside playing. Then he says, "let's go outside and make a fertility goddess." Ha, ha - wait, what? Then my 3 year old says, "mom, what's a fertility goddess?" Oh dear Lord, what is happening? Suddenly I'm in a Pink Floyd remix of toddlers and fertility and I'm not liking it. AWKWARD!
Then the little girl, who is attempting to saw her friend Charles in half (magic trick), looses her hat as it blows out the window. She runs after her hat and this is where she runs into Frosty. But pay no mind to Frosty because here comes her mother. "Oh there you are. You realize you left Charles all alone. Now how are you going to feel when he grows up and has to join a support group." Ha, ha - wait, what? I think I sprained an eyelash with the uncontrollable blinking that ensued.
I'm not really sure I have a point here. I think I'm just stunned. I mean...Frosty + fertility goddess + support group + (this comes later) chemical removal of all snow = WTH (what the heck - yup, pulling out the PG version) people.
Oh well. The world is such a funny place. I just thought I would share this because I've been giggling about it and had to tell you. I'm not sure Frosty Returns will be returning to my TV but it was an interesting experience. By the way, there is another Frosty movie, Frosty in Wonderland or something like that, where it talks all about Frosty needing to get himself a wife. Yeah...I'm not even going to tell you what I think about that. Geez people, don't you know these movies are for kids. They want magic and morals and happy gum drop feelings.
Ok, nuff said.
