Things I Hate: Rudolph and Frosty’s Christmas in July

I remember seeing Rudolph and Frosty’s Christmas in July as a kid. Not only would they show it during Christmas time, but obviously in July as well. While I loved both Rudolph’s and Frosty’s original movies, this Christmas duo’s movie was terrible.

The story starts off with some evil wizard named Winterbolt. I can’t exactly remember what his evil plans were but it was something about getting revenge on Santa. Apparently only Rudolph is capable of stopping the evil magician. Frosty and his family get pulled into the conflict.

One of the reasons why I didn’t like this movie is the fact Frosty and his wife can survive the summer heat. Sure they explained it with magic, but it looked so out of place. Kinda like celebrating Christmas in July. Also that circus setting was just strange.

Looking back I can obviously see this was a rather lazy attempt to recapture the success from the original movies. There’s little I like about Christmas in July, as I thought the animation style was hideous, the story boring, and its original characters horrendous. Needless to say I never looked forward to seeing it again whether in summer or winter.
