The DVD was delivered quicker than stated and was in perfect condition. It played perfect also. The problem was that when it was committed commercially to DVD, they removed the lovely forward by the then YOUNG David Bowie and replace it with the aged unshaven listless acting David Bowie who repeated the words, but it wasn't the same.

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.
