Vintage Christmas Videos - WGN Chicago E-mail

If you grew up in the Chicagoland area you know that it wouldn't be Christmas without these three animated videos. They aired on WGN TV which was a local station until years later when it became a cable super station. They were aired in what became an ongoing tradition for viewers going way back to 1952 thanks to the week day puppet show Garfield Goose and Friends with Frazier Thomas.

They're all time classics for every age. The first is "Hardrock, Coco and Joe" followed by "Suzy Snowflake" by George Pal's Centaur Productions. Then the jazzy "Frosty the Snowman" by UPA. The first two are stop motion animation and the last traditionally animated. Enjoy...
