* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: [[http://cartoon-watching.blogspot.com/2011/12/frosty-snowman.html This review]] by Nothing But Cartoons posits a lot, namely that Professor Hinkle is a CosmicPlaything undergoing SanitySlippage, the kids are Frosty-worshipping cultists who practically stole Hinkle's hat, and Frosty is a total IdiotHoudini.
* BrokenBase: Many fans of the original special are torn on ''Frosty Returns''.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: So after Santa rebuilt Frosty and was about to put the hat on, that magician comes to grab it again. How does Santa put an end to it? By threatening to never give him anymore presents. It instantly shuts the guy up.
* EarWorm: ''Frosty Returns'' may be flawed, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6PnTmyYT6w "Let it Snow'']] is somewhat catchy.
* FanonDiscontinuity: There was no such thing as ''Frosty Returns''.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: "Stay in here much longer, and I'll really make a splash in the world." Funny when Frosty said it upon entering the greenhouse, not so much not two minutes later; perhaps even a record-setter as far as these go.
* MoralEventHorizon: Hinkle crosses this when he locks Frosty in the greenhouse and, thus, causes him to [[spoiler:[[TearJerker melt]].]]
** Possibly even earlier when he douses Karen's campfire, which was the only thing between her and freezing to death. It's especially bad because he does so ''[[ForTheEvulz for no good reason]]''. At least killing Frosty helped him achieve his goal of getting the hat back, but endangering the little girl achieves nothing.
** The worst part about Hinkle is, he wants the hat back [[MoneyDearBoy solely because of greed]], claiming he'd be "a billionaire magician" if he had it. That's kind of low.
* NightmareFuel: More than one child has been traumatized when [[spoiler:Professor Hinkle deliberately melts Frosty]]. Even worse when you realize [[spoiler:[[FridgeHorror Karen had to watch her friend melt]].]]
* StrawmanHasAPoint: While the [[{{Anvilicious}} jawbustingly tired]] and [[{{CaptainObviousAesop}} astoundingly self-evident]] GreenAesop in ''Frosty Returns'' is still an important message to get across to viewers, as being ecologically responsible is important, it's hard to see how the townsfolk could be wrong for hating snow because of how often it tends to come with serious fall-related injuries.
* TearJerker: When [[spoiler:Frosty is melted]], and again when Frosty and Karen have to part in the penultimate scene.
* TheyJustDidntCare: ''Frosty Returns''
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Frosty and his wife may be happy up in the Arctic, but what ever became of "Pastor Snow" who married them? He was alive too; but isn't mentioned after the wedding.
