Why didn't Frosty stay for Christmas?

In the original 1969 movie, in the morning of Christmas day after Frosty was revived by Santa, why didn't Frosty stay for Christmas rather than heading to the North Pole with Santa?

Why do people keep calling this a movie?

Because part of the Santanic pact he made, in order to be brought back to life Frosty had to be a slave at the North Pole...forever.

Jackie Vernon, the voice of Frosty, was also the main guy in Microwave Massacre.

In the TV special, not movie, he went to the North Pole in a hurry because he was afraid of melting.

It's pretty much this Adam H fellow that's doing that. They started the two previous threads:

They've never replied in the threads they've made, so no idea if this is some weird trolling or what. I can't imagine something thinking about this Christmas special for over a month.

I figure he or she, is a studio screenwriter tasked with adapting the animated special (movie) into live action extravaganza. Probably struggling, suffering, or both to put a screenplay together, so he /she maybe they are hitting all the movie forums fishing for ideas.

Outside of Facebook groups, what's left besides this one and Home Theater Forum?

This is as confusing to me as Frosty is to the OP.

If this guy is a professional screenwriter, and he can't figure out that Frosty went to the North Pole because there he could stay frozen and live until next Xmas, then this is going to be an even shittier adaptation than I would expect just based on the weakness of the source material.

Yeah, two last month and then this one. I expect more threads as we get closer to the show airing again.

I vote troll.

There was a healthy debate about this at the last “Frosty the Snowman” convention.

The good news is they're still continuing it on Zoom of course. So get your Frosty cosplay ready!
