A magical, wintry wonderland awaits in this charming children’s show, closely adapted from the same Hans Christian Andersen tale as Disney’s Frozen.  The Flurries, the icy imps of the Snow Queen, conjure up a cruel spell to make a magical mirror that reflects the ugly side of humanity.  Hardly impressed, the Snow Queen smashes the mirror to set her more dastardly plan into motion.  While cousins Gerda and Kay play tag, Kay gets a shard of the shattered mirror stuck in his eye, and it turns him into a rotten brat.  The Snow Queen kidnaps the boy and takes him to her Ice Castle.  Timid Gerda is determined to rescue her best friend, armed only with a Gypsy’s jar of warm wishes and giggle-inducing snickerdoodles.  On her journey, she encounters a cursed gardener, talking flowers, a mischievous fox, a know-it-all crow, a generous princess and rowdy robbers.  Once at the castle, Gerda uses the jar of warm wishes to melt the Flurries and the magical cookies to warm Kay’s heart again.  Thanks to Gerda’s own warm heart and her loving, forgiving nature, the Snow Queen transforms into the Sun Queen and the Flurries return as Sunbeams.
