I know that The Snowman is an iconic British animation/film/tv programme and a British Christmas TV tradition, but I also know that it is a favourite of some (American) posters here. So I post this and I will update it with the full programme after Xmas if I can.
A pile of snow becomes possessed by a demon and preys on a little boy on whom he uses occult powers to lead him spiritually astray.
Well, when you say it like that, it becomes somewhat less appealing ...

He’s holding a boy in front of him...and he’s got a smile on his face. I wonder if the snowman is a member of NAMBLA?
Close. The Snowman is played by David Bowie.
Anyway the real, not-made-for-TV, original version of The Snowman has Raymond Briggs speaking his own intro.
Hope you can get the whole show, would love to see it!
Thanks for posting.
The Snowman converts to Islam and opens a Mosque in London. Wackiness insues,
...at the end of the movie, The Snowman is destroyed by Global Warming.
