Where did he say he never heard of him? He saying it's erie to hear the voice that did Frosty sing a song you'd least expect. It'd be like Kevin Clash singing "the Beautiful People" by Marylin Manson

Burl Ives wasn't Frosty the Snowman. Burl Ives was the Snowman from Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Duh.

Came to say this. Frosty was voiced by Jackie Vernon.

Nope...its Stinky Wizzleteats. Well, the inspiration for him, anyway...and he would've done the voice work if they'd asked him...
