Summary

Ted the Man with the Yellow Hat (Frosty the Snowman), along with Curious George, goes where they are needed most, and the town of Evergreen is surely needed a visit. Prince Derek (Mr. Tinkerton), the mayor, runs a tight ship, and there's no room for talk about magic, jungle fun or any such nonsense. But when Ted and George both blow through the town, they both show the town's children that magic is real. Derek's sons, Taran (Charlie) and Zephyr (Tommy), along with their friends, Melody (Sarah) and Hiro (Walter), want to spread a word about Ted's fun-loving, magical and royal antics but meet resistance from Evergreen's Elementary's dastardly school principal Jafar (Principal Hank Pankley). In the end, good wins out and all the citizens of Evergreen happily learn that magic is real, friendship exist and fun is for everyone!

Plot

At the beginning of the story, we see George escape from a locked cage in an attic, jumps out a window, and descend on the picture perfect town of Evergreen. George first reveals himself to Zephyr (Tommy Tinkerton), the son of the town’s impossibly upbeat but no-nonsense mayor, Prince Derek (Mr. Tinkerton). Zephyr dares not to accept George’s invitation to play outside, because he’s afraid of disappointing his father. So George instead befriends Zephyr’s best friend, Hiro (Walter Wader), who shocks everyone, especially his very strict mother, by breaking curfew and flying, sledding, and snowball-fighting with Ted (Frosty) and George.

Hiro’s rule-breaking gets all the kids of Evergreen talking, but it greatly upsets Jafar (Principal Pankley), who is even more adamantly opposed to magic than Prince Derek. Jafar uses the arrival of Ted and George to sow doubts among the townspeople about Prince Derek's leadership, and little by little he begins to take over the town.

But once magic is stirred up, it isn’t easily contained. One by one, Ted wins over the other kids of Evergreen, including Melody (Sara Simple) (a sharp, independent young princess); Zephyr’s brother, Taran (Charlie Tinkerton); and Cody (Sonny), Corneilus (Sully), and Tommy Pickles (Simon Sklarow). Ted befriends each of them through the simple means of believing in them, which inspires them to begin to believe in themselves.

Increasingly desperate to deny the existence of Ted and George and keep Evergreen fun-free, Jafar tricks Hiro into helping him lure Ted for some beach-themed fun, then tricks Ted into venturing on the shore. Before Hiro can save his friend, Ted gets caught, throws into the ocean and melts, and Jafar captures George with Ted's yellow hat, which is the key to Ted's magic.

As all of this unfolds, Zephyr, who was the first one to whom Ted appeared, has been sitting on the sidelines, watching his best friend, his brother, and his hoped-for sweetheart experiencing adventure and magic in which he could share. But he has held back, even though he yearns to meet Ted, out of loyalty to his dad (because he knows his dad would disapprove of him acknowledging the existence of magic).

Everything changes, though, when Zephyr finds a secret room beneath the library, in which he discovers a

comic book filled with secrets about Ted. At first, most of the comic book is blank. Each time Zephyr checks it again, new panels appear. Over the course of several scenes, Zephyr learns that Ted’s magic is in his hat; that his dad (Prince Derek) met Ted and George when he was a boy, and did believe in magic once upon a time; and that Jafar, a childhood friend of his father’s, took George and Ted’s hat and hid them away in an attic (the same attic from which George escaped at the beginning of the story), causing young Prince Derek to lose his faith in magic. The comic book also reveals to Zephyr what Jafar has just done (with Hiro's unwitting help) to recapture Ted and George.

All this time, Zephyr has held back from befriending Ted out of loyalty to his dad, who has always told Zephyr not to believe in magic. But now Zephyr sees that his dad once believed in magic, too, but was tricked into losing faith. And Zephyr realizes that the most loyal thing he can do is not to hide from magic, but to help his dad rediscover that magic is indeed real.

Zephyr explains what’s really going on to Taran, Melody, Hiro and the Sklarow triplets, and leads a daring rescue of George and Ted’s hat in which all the kids help out. A climactic series of scenes follows in which Jafar, becoming a genie in the progress, tries and fails to recapture George and the hat, then tries to deter the townspeople (including Prince Derek) from going into the woods to see what all the ruckus and noise are about. But Prince Derek refuses to be deterred, and Zephyr is able to reintroduce his dad to the old friend, who Hercules had long since stopped believing in.

Meanwhile, the other parents are confused and angry: why are their kids out at night? And can this magical snowman they’ve been hearing about be real after all? Jafar tries to stir them up to regain control of the situation, but Hiro breaks the spell by throwing a snowball at Jafar. And one by one, the other kids and parents join in, until the town of Evergreen, which had forgotten how to have fun, gives itself over joyously to a “ocean-fun, horseplaying, lark of a good time.”

As Jafar is fired from his job and was been killed by throwing his lamp into a lava for his crimes, the adults reconcile with their children and Prince Derek comes to believe in magic again, not wanting his sons to grow up without magic as he did. Then, a brief epilogue shows us Evergreen transformed—with Prince Derek doing new tricks, Taran playing sword fighting, Zephyr ringing Quasimodo's La Fidèle and Melody swimming in the sea, getting her wish granted. Prince Derek also removes the rules and curfews from the town.

All along, the story has been narrated (à la “Our Town”) by a warm, wise, seemingly omniscient old man who appears periodically and comments on the events unfolding in Evergreen. In the final scene of the movie, the narrator reveals that he is Zephyr, all grown up and now married to Widow Tweed (Melody/old Sara Simple), who is calling him in from the cold and goes back home; and he has been telling us his own story.
