Once upon a time, in the old days, many children went to their dad’s Works Annual Christmas Party and might see a juggler or puppet show. The show, the party and a tangerine to go home with was often the highlight of the year for children in the late 50s and early 6os. If it was one of our shows Frosty would certainly be part of it! Jamie (middle grandson) and I reconstructed this number last summer.

Alan and I popped out in the snow a couple of years ago to make this film, I think one has to be a bit mad to be creative.
Frosty and I first appeared with Johnny Morris of ‘Animal Magic’ fame in the 5os helping him with one of his stories.
Happy Christmas to you all Ann
