Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas! For all of you celebrating today, I wish you joy and happiness.
If your children, like mine, have you up and opening presents at the crack of dawn, you'll be winding down just in time to watch Jack Frost at 7:30 a.m. ET on ABC Family. Creepy blue eyes aside, the cartoon tells the tale of Jack Frost, the icy spirit of winter, who wants to leave his North Pole existence and become human for the beautiful snowwoman-turned-human he's fallen in love with. Father Winter grants his wish, but not until Jack fights an evil giant and finds a home with a pot of gold. Yet another stop-motion animated special from Rankin and Bass, Jack Frost features the songs "Me and My Shadow," "The Christmas Song" and many more.
