The Snowman is a childrens book written in 1978 by Raymond Briggs, this book provided the story and imagery for the 1982 animated film. The famous image of The Snowman and the boy flying over fields and roof tops on their way to the north pole, is used on the 2018 50 pence piece.

The theme music for the journey to the north pole was "Walking in the Air" by Howard Blake, recorded for the film by choirboy Peter Auty. In 1985, Toys "R" Us created an avert based on the film, with a new version of the song recorded by Aled Jones.
