Silver Age Christmas - "The Battle Royal"

All December 2014, we will be celebrating a Silver Age Christmas, with great Silver Age comics about Christmas. For the sake of this endeavor, "Silver Age" will be defined as 1956-1970 (the annoying part about that is that 1951-1955 sort of fall into no man's land, as it is not yet Silver Age but also seems to be a bit late for Golden Age).

We continue with 1956's Four Color Comics #746...

In this story, by Dan Gormley, Frosty is enlisted in a mission by Santa Claus...

He discovers that the little boy he has been sent to convince of Santa Claus' existence is the Crown Prince of Farawaynia. After Frosty manages to sneak past the prince's security, he is caught right after throwing a snowball at the king (inadvertently, he was just trying to get the prince's attention). Luckily for Frosty, he DID end up getting the prince's attention!

Cute little story.
