Comedian
    (March 29, 1924-November 10, 1987)
    Born in Manhattan, New York
    Birth name was Ralph Verrone
    Stand-up comedian
    Provided the voice of Frosty in the Rankin-Bass special 'Frosty the Snow Man' (1969) and its sequels
    Acted in 'Microwave Massacre,' 'The Woman Inside,' 'The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight' and 'A Touch of Grace'
    He was roly-poly (kind of like Frosty).
    His comedy regularly revolved around his being a misanthropic wallflower (his signature phrase: 'To look at me now, it's hard to believe I was once considered a dull guy!')
    He once described himself as 'someone who spends his time at parties in the room with the coats and whose idea of a good time is to go down to the bus terminal and pretend I'm going somewhere.'
    Frosty frequently used the term 'what a neat...' which was a reference to an X-Rated Friar's Club routine he did describing people performing acts of sexual depravity before observing 'what a neat guy!'
    He was discovered by Steve Allen.
    His humor was self-deprecating.
    He once famously said: 'I used to be an atheist [but] gave it up: no holidays.'
    As a child, he idolized Charlie Chaplin and wrote fan letters to him frequently. Chaplin never responded.
    Years later, while working the Las Vagas strip sighted Chaplin in the audience. When he went up to his table to introduce himself; Charlie cut him short: 'Of course, Jackie Vernon. Tell me, why did you stop writing?'
    'Frosty the Snowman' remains a holiday favorite and has been broadcast annually on CBS since its debut.
