and Suzy Snowflake and Frosty the Snowman? I'm talking about the b&w animated shorts based on these songs that TV stations used to show at this time of year back in the 60's. I watched them on WJAC TV out of Johnstown, PA. I've heard they were also shown a lot in Chicago. A couple years ago, my brothr gave me a video tape with these and Clutch Cargo and Diver Dan and a bunch of other stuff from our childhood on it.

Frosty the snowman I remember was in color. Do you remember the Captian Eleven show.It was with the Three Stooges out of St.Louis.KPLR channel 11.just wondering if they showed it in other parts of the country.

When I was kid back in the 60's, The Three Stooges were rescued from obscurity by a guy named Paul Shannon who had a kid's show called "Adventure Time" on WTAE TV out of Pittsburgh. He even had them as guests on the show. Most sources credit him w/ restarting their career. As a bit of trivia, jazz guitarist Joe Negri (Handyman Negri from Mister Rogers)also had a kid's show that aired right before Adventure Time every afternoon. BOth shows were done live. Don't confuse the color Frosty 1/2 hour cartoon (Jimmy Durante narrates) with the b&w short I mentioned. It has no story line other than the one from the lyrics of the song and the song is sung a capella. The animation style is very spare and Frosty is more than a little creepy. Hardrock, CoCo, and Joe (are they in Lord of the Rings?) is done in stop-action animation, as is Suzy Snowflake.
