Here is the animated sequel to Raymond Briggs's classic The Snowman. Its presence isn't that ran-dom when you consider it's the cartoon's 30th anniversary. Briggs was kind of against a sequel, you see. When a young boy, Billy, and his mother move house, he discovers a box hidden under the floorboards of his bedroom. In the box, he finds a hat, scarf, some lumps of coal and a shrivelled tangerine - it's a snowman-making kit... When it begins to snow the child builds a Snowman and, with some spare snow, a Snowdog. You can guess the rest. One of them better melt at the end.
The Snowman and the Snowdog. Channel 4: 8.00pm
