"...Expert pantomime and orchestral score....Shaggy charm..." -- Rating: A 12/18/1993 p.93

BFI Screen Online 8 of 10
Sweet and perhaps old-fashioned, The Snowman taps into the magical spirit of Christmas, and now seems almost as much a part of the season as sherry and mince pies. Alongside Aardman's Wallace and Gromit series, it is probably the most successful British example of family-oriented animation.
