Fronsty is Frosty The Snowman's idiot cousin, following his dream of baking the perfect Christmas cookie. Fronsty is a fun, silly Christmas tale for kids and adults alike (unlike the rest of To The Manor Borne By Robots, which is NSFW). Leading the fray as Fronsty is superstar voice actor Robbie Rist, who began his long career as Cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch. Aiding and abetting is Feodor Chin, the voice of Zenyatta in the hit game Overwatch, as Fronsty's elf bestie, Jojo. Narrating this Yuletide tale is Judas Priest frontman, the Metal God himself, Rob Halford. Merry Christmas from the Manor!
