Later that same evening, at 7:30 p.m. CT, there’s still more magic as Frosty Returns to continue his adventure and skate on the edge of danger. Jonathan Winters is the narrator with John Goodman as the voice of Frosty.

Finally, on Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 7-8 p.m. CT, the legendary Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for the 56th consecutive year.

Narrated by Burl Ives, who is also heard as the voice of Sam the Snowman, this favorite is based on the popular song of the same name by Johnny Marks. It recounts the tale of a shy reindeer whose Christmas spirit is dampened because his shiny nose has made him the laughing stock of all of Christmasville.
