Tom and Jerry: Frosty Returns is an animated direct-to-video musical-fantasy comedy feature starring Tom and Jerry, produced by Warner Bros. Animation for Turner Entertainment Co. in association with DreamWorks Classics and Rankin/Bass Productions. It is the newly retold version of Bill Melendez's Frosty Returns — an unofficial sequel to the 1969 TV special Frosty the Snowman without the involvement of Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass, and with the use of characters from the Tom and Jerry series and the 1964 stop motion TV special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The film serves as a chronological sequel to Tom and Jerry Meet Frosty the Snowman. The film reunites only Elisabeth Moss as Holly DeCarlo, Brian Doyle-Murray as Mr. Twitchell, and Andrea Martin as Ms. Carbuncle, and re-introduces Richard Kind as Tom, Stephanie Nadolny as Jerry, Kathleen Barr as Rudolph, and Seth MacFarlane as Frosty. It was primary animated overseas by the Japanese studios Madhouse and OLM with the South Korean studio Digital eMation sharing in their animation services, and sound effects are provided by the Toho Sound Studio and Swara Productions.

Summary Edit

Three years after the events of his first original story, Frosty the Snowman (Seth MacFarlane), along with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Kathleen Barr) and Nibbles (Kath Soucie), travels with Tom and Jerry (Richard Kind and Stephanie Nadolny) to an American town called Beansboro, judged as one of the top winter vacation destinations in the country for a limited time. There, for this reason, an annual winter carnival is held at the Gooseberry Park on three Saturdays in January following the end of the holidays; the five boys befriended a lonely girl named Holly DeCarlo (Elisabeth Moss) and her only friend Charles (Elizabeth Daily), who were practicing her magic acts for the carnival's "Monarch of Winter" talent show together; and Tom and Jerry goes on a date with their girlfriends, Toodles Galore (Grey DeLisle) and Toots (Kari Wahlgren), in their trip. As new surprises ever to be revealed to Tom and Jerry, Frosty is well-educated at a North Pole academy, and he now lives without his old silk hat full of magic for only two and a half years at the most, after having his clean and shiny wisdom teeth extracted by Rudolph's friend Hermey (Scott McNeil)—an elf in both toy-making and dentistry, and his wish granted by the Tooth Fairy. However, though he is new and improved by this current enchantment, Frosty is in danger of melting once again, but not by either the sun or another nearby thermometer. A new threat to the magically living snowman, Mr. Twitchell (Brian Doyle-Murray), creates an aerosol substance called "Summer Wheeze" to erase all the snow from Beansboro, hoping to win the show on the carnival's final Saturday and use the same title to control the town...and the whole world, where there is snow. Only Tom, Jerry, Rudolph, Frosty and their gang can meddle in Twitchell's evil schemes, and their other allies including Jerry's stronger cousin Muscles (Maurice LaMarche), Frosty's former magician rival Professor Hinkle (Peter Woodward), Hocus Pocus (John Cusack), and Rudolph's doe Clarice will help them in their secret mission. Can they show the inventor of Summer Wheeze and the citizens of Beansboro the true meaning of both snow and magic for all the girls and boys?
