YMMV / Rankin Bass Jack Frost

  • Ear Worm: The Kubla Kraus theme song, There's The Rub.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A girl being in love with Jack Frost...well, that seems pretty random. Not anymore, thanks in part to Rise of The Guardians.
  • Once Acceptable Targets: The villain, Kubla Krauss, is very obviously a Cossack Russian. Played with in that even the other Cossacks couldn't stand him!
  • Prop Recycling: Several examples, this being one of the final "Animagic" specials:
    • The Jack Frost figure was originally created for Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July
    • Elisa may or may not be the Jessica figure from Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town with new hair
    • The Winter Gypsies are all repainted versions of Santa's elves
  • Tear Jerker: After everything Jack did to win the heart of the girl who he loved so much that he was willing to give up immortality for, she marries someone else, and he has no choice but to return to the heavens.
  • Values Dissonance: Elisa's parents making the comments they do regarding Holly's size may come off as just a tad insensitive, especially to those afflicted with dwarfism.
