Trailers from Hell: Charming 1982 Animated Short ‘The Snowman’

Trailers from Hell: Charming 1982 Animated Short 'The Snowman'

This week, Trailers from Hell presents the full-length animated short film “The Snowman,” just in time for the holidays.  

We’re giving the gurus a well deserved break and in their absence we’re pleased to present a bone fide cartoon classic, Raymond Briggs’ THE SNOWMAN. This beguiling fantasy about a child’s airborne adventures with an enchanted snowman made its first appearance in 1978 as a beautifully illustrated picture book. This animated version, produced in 1982, maintains the glimmering pastel landscapes of Briggs’ original artwork as well as their gently hypnotic pull. It’s the very definition of peace on earth.
