* FaceHeelTurn: In the sequel, [[RankinBassJackFrost Jack Frost]] is the villain and unlike the clumsy Professor Hinkle, Jack ''is'' a serious threat against Frosty and the kids. Fortunately, Jack realizes he's being a dick for no good reasons and performs a HeelFaceTurn, remaining as a friend and powerful ally every time he appeared again.

* BornOfMagic: The jolly, happy soul only came into existence after a [[Disney/{{Frozen}} vaguely humanoid-shaped lump of ice crystals]] was topped with an inexplicably magical top hat. (Though it's possible the consciousness already existed inside the hat, and only needed a sufficient vessel.)

* HeroicSacrifice: Frosty takes Karen to a greenhouse, and obviously doesn't care that a warm greenhouse will do him in quickly.

A sequel, ''Frosty's Winter Wonderland'', was produced in 1976 and the feature-length {{Crossover}} ''Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July'' (which, unlike the previous installments, [[ArtShift utilized R/B's "Animagic" process]]) followed in 1979; Jackie Vernon reprised the part of Frosty in both, and over the course of them our hero acquires a snow-wife (Crystal, voiced by Shelley Winters) and even snow-kids. A non-Rankin/Bass sequel, ''Frosty Returns'', with John Goodman as the title character and Creator/JonathanWinters as the narrator, was made in 1992; it was [[TheyJustDidntCare not generally well-received]]. In this one, the plot focuses around a secular "Winter Carnival" holiday and features an evil businessman named Mr. Twitchell that goes around spraying "Summer Wheeze" an aerosol that gets rid of snow. Apparently, ''the entire town hates snow''. The entire film is about Frosty and [[{{Expy}} a new girl named Holly]] ''singing about how good snow is''. If you haven't guessed, it's an environmentally-themed short. Then in 2005, another special, ''Legend of Frosty the Snowman'', was released on video, with Bill Fagerbakke as the voice of Frosty.

* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: Yet another criticism aimed at this special is that Christmas is never mentioned in any capacity and is replaced by the town celebrating a Winter Carnival. Quite jarring considering the fact that Frosty the Snowman originated as a ''Christmas'' song and nobody complained about his connection to the holiday before.

* HeelFaceTurn[=/=]DefeatMeansFriendship: After Holly and Frosty convince everyone that snow is important after all, she offers Mr. Twitchell a ride in he tobogan and Frosty gives him the crown and cape even though he was elected the Carnival King. The narrator also mentions that Mr. Twitchell ceased production of Summer Wheeze and starts making sleds instead.

* ArtShiftedSequel: The animation style is different than that of the original. As is often noted, it resembles the ''{{ComicStrip/Peanuts}}'' specials, which is handily explained by the fact that the animation was done by Bill Melendez Productions.
