THE SNOWMAN - Ted Eshbaugh Studios (1933)

I was trying to find a good X-Mas horror for you, but I couldn't make up my mind, was it gonna be "Black Christmas," "Silent Night, Deadly Night," or "Santa Claws?" Hell No, the definitive winter horror is "The Snowman!" Welcome back to WTF!? Wednesday down in The Dungeon, and a special little treat from 1933 courtesy of the fine folks at Xmas Flix, called simply.....................................


It's been a long Winter's night, and it's time for all our knucklehead friends to the North to wake up!

Ain't nothing but fun and games and good times once the sun comes back out on a regular basis!

All the locals build a gigantic snowman to celebrate the occasion with a big end of Winter ring around the rosey song and dance show!

The mood changes suddenly!

The Snowman is changing!

He's getting uglier!

And uglier!!

And downright terrifying!

This happy X-Mas cartoon turns into a horrifying tale right before your eyes as the giant snowman starts killing and maiming indiscriminately!

Is this the only known snowman on record that has a butt even some 80 plus years later?

The Snowman busts up some universal church service!

You think The Snowman is going to go all romantic "Phantom Of he Opera" style on the organ but no, he's a real monster and destroys the place instead!

Lucky for everybody that this little guy knows how to control all the elements! That causes an early thaw, and things start to melt!

At first it's just an annoying suntan!

But in no time at all, The Snowman starts making his permanent departure once and for all!

Sayonara Asshole!!

I knew a lot of these early cartoons got pretty dark, but I never expected a killer snowman.

"...the only snowman on record who has a butt..."
It looks like whoever built him wasn't as considerate when it came to the FRONT.

The Snowman was such a dickhead, I guess he didn't need two!
