(Newser) – CBS spoof videos which feature Frosty the Snowman frequenting strip joints, drooling over boobs, amassing a porn collection and gushing over his favorite S&M whip are getting a chilly reception from a number of fans. The online videos, which all run as Frosty the Inappropriate Snowman, is a promotion for How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men that combines traditional animation with voice-overs from both shows.

Much of the criticism is predictably coming from right-wing and "family-values" camps. "The dirty-minded lunatics have definitely taken over the asylum this time," groused Fox commentator John Tantillo. But even some inclined to chuckle at the pervy Frosty have their limits. OK, so the videos are funny, but "it’s not going to be amusing when some fourth-grader Googling Frosty gets schooled on everything from porn to prostitutes," notes a Boston Herald columnist. CBS isn't commenting.
