A sequel, ''Frosty's Winter Wonderland'' featuring [[TheAndyGriffithShow Andy Griffith]] as the narrator, was produced in 1976 and the feature-length {{Crossover}} ''WesternAnimation/RudolphAndFrostysChristmasInJuly'' (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 Creator/JohnGoodman as the title character and Creator/JonathanWinters as the narrator, was made in 1992; it was [[{{Sequelitis}} 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.

* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Frosty gets this in every Rankin Bass special. In the original, he melts when Professor Hinkle locks him in a greenhouse, but Santa brings him back with a December wind. In ''WesternAnimation/FrostysWinterWonderland,'' he turns back into an ordinary snowman when Jack Frost steals his magic hat, but Crystal's kiss brings him back to life. And in ''WesternAnimation/RudolphAndFrostysChristmasInJuly,'' he gets ''two'' Disney Deaths: first by loss of his hat, then again by melting, but as usual, neither lasts long.]]
