The Snowman: The Snowman has been a Christmas staple ever since its original release in 1982. Based on Raymond Briggs' classic children's book, the tale of a solitary little boy whose snowman comes to life in the night and takes him on a series of adventures which culminate in a meeting with Father Christmas. It's uncluttered by modern standards and told with a gentle simplicity which renders it utterly poignant.
The Snowman deservedly won awards for its animators. But they had the best material to work with: Briggs' softly absorbing original illustrations which magically combine Christmas fantasy with the stark realities of life and death.
The Snowman And The Snowdog: The Snowman and The Snowdog beautifully captures the magic and excitement of the original film as well as being a heart-warming story about love, loss and friendship.
When a young boy, Billy, moves house, he discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards - a snowman-making kit! Billy builds his Snowman and, with a little spare snow, a Snowdog. At midnight, The Snowman and The Snowdog magically come to life.
Join Billy on an amazing adventure, as they fly over London to the North Pole and compete with a mix of wonderfully colourful characters in a very special race.
On return, Billy must leave his new friends outside and return to bed - but first, a wonderful surprise awaits him...

Almost a christmas classic

This is a beautiful follow up to the original.
The music especially the hometown is touching and wonderful. However given my 4 year olds reaction it did not have the grab of the original or of the late Mel Smiths Father Christmas. It will always be played here each Christmas but not necessarily as first choice. The soundtrack is stunning also.
