* GenreSavvy: Professor Hinkle displays how much of this he is when confronted by Santa at the climax (specifically, Hinkle was at least smart enough to recognize how the viewers currently see him at that point):
-->'''Professor Hinkle''': ''[kicks a can while undergoing a VillainousBSOD]'' That's not fair! I mean, we evil magicians have to make a living too...



** Professor Hinkle, though only when threatened by Santa, and he still describes himself as an "evil magician" during this sequence (though that may just have been because he was GenreSavvy enough to realize just how low he had sunk and was only making a correct observation of how the average viewer would view him after what he had put Frosty through). Of course, it helps that Santa had promised him that he'd probably get a new hat if he wrote "I am very sorry for what I did to Frosty" a hundred zillion times, so he wouldn't need his old one anymore.

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 [[{{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.

* VocalDissonance: In the original airing with June Foray as Karen, Paul Frees plays the other kids, which sounds quite odd.

* {{Expy}}: Hocus Pocus seems inspired by Snoopy (or at least the non-verbal, pantomime portrayal of him in the ''{{ComicStrip/Peanuts}}'' specials).

* FaceHeelTurn: In the sequel, [[WesternAnimation/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.



* HeelFaceTurn: Professor Hinkle, though only when threatened by Santa, and he still describes himself as an "evil magician" during this sequence (though that may just have been because he was GenreSavvy enough to realize just how low he had sunk and was only making a correct observation of how the average viewer would view him after what he had put Frosty through). Of course, it helps that Santa had promised him that he'd probably get a new hat if he wrote "I am very sorry for what I did to Frosty" a hundred zillion times, so he wouldn't need his old one anymore.
** Jack Frost in the sequel pulls a more legitimate one when Crystal acknowledges his importance and invites him to participate in the wedding.

* 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 ''Frosty's Winter Wonderland,''he turns back into an ordinary snowman when Jack Frost steals his hat, but Crystal's kiss brings him back to life. And in ''Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July,'' he gets ''two'' Disney Deaths: first by loss of his magic hat, then again by melting, but as usual, neither lasts long.]]
