In the song "Frosty the Snowman" what made Frosty come to life?
An old silk hat. Frosty the Snowman was first recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass Country Boys in 1950, the year after Gene Autry experienced success with his "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" recording. Both songs have proven to be fruitful as well as timeless. Both lead to countless recordings and are considered television special classics, if not holiday staples.
