A few days ago, Charles Brubaker kindly sent me a link to Cartoon Brew, which featured an animated cartoon from 1943 called “Der Schneemann” (“The Snowman”) by my grandfather, Hans Fischerkoesen.

The very end is missing from this version of the film… at the end of the original, the bunny gazes sadly at the melted snowman, then tenderly picks up the carrot that had been his nose, and starts nibbling on it.

Coincidentally, my winter holiday cards this year are partly inspired by that moment:

Happy holidays!
