Top 10 Worst Things About Olaf’s Frozen Adventure

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is one of the worst holiday specials I’ve ever seen! I like Frozen, but this was terrible! So let’s discuss the worst things about this special.

The Top Ten

1 Olaf Olaf Olaf the Snowman is a character from the 2013 animated film Frozen, produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Olaf is a lot like SpongeBob. Both have similar good-natured but naive personalities, and both them either come off as funny and charming or annoying depending on what material they're given. Olaf, like SpongeBob, is also a lot better when he's working off of other people as opposed to being by himself. I thought he was likable enough during the "short", but I totally see how someone would find him irritating. - phillysports

I didn't mind Olaf in the Frozen movie. He said some amusing things. In this there was just to much of Olaf. I also refuse to call it a short because that was in no way a "short". Was so happy it finally ended so I could see Coco, which is why I went to the movies in the first place.

Olaf just isn't a good stand alone character. In order for comic relief characters to be effective, they need something more serious to play off of- it's called comic RELIEF for a reason, it suppose to soften tense moments.

Olaf is just annoying. - RaccoonCartoon

2 Anna Anna Princess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

So I saw the Frozen christmas special (on T.V.) and of course, all the scenes with Elsa were great, and all her singing parts were as beautiful as she looked in her sparkling new dress. Seriously, an animated character should not be this gorgeous. But the rest of it was bad, and mostly because of this inferior Rapunzel (Tangled) clone. I HATE Anna so much! She was incredibly annoying and irritating. Even worse, she was all over the first canon Frozen movie! There was more of Anna than poor Elsa! Elsa's canon characterization should've been properly given enough to do back then before. Elsa The Snow Queen should've been the canon title instead of Frozen and Elsa the snow queen deserves better than this inferior carbon copy of Rapunzel (Tangled).

Why does it seem like the same anonymous person keeps coming back to this list just to keep voting for Anna? - MegaSoulhero

Nothing at all but a rip off of other more classical (either made Disney or wasn't made by Disney at all) princesses/heroines/beauties anyway!

Every time someone votes for Anna, I just vote for Olaf to make sure Anna doesn’t get up to number 1. - MegaSoulhero

3 It Ruined a Pixar Tradition

Yes I think this show might be very okay but the way they ruined the whole pixar thing makes me want to cry because I'm going to miss I mean I love pixar but then.. this all happened just because of this show

Frozen ruins everything. - RaccoonCartoon

I still likeFrozen butmy respectfor it dropped a bit after this short - 445956

You have no idea how angry this made me. As we all know, it’s been a tradition for Pixar to release a Pixar short with their movies. They’ve been doing that with all of their movies since Toy Story. That is until Coco came out! Instead of releasing a Pixar short with the film, they decided to release Olaf’s Frozen Adventure! Which is not technically a short or made by Pixar! Are you serious!? Why would they do that!? I always love when we get to see a Pixar short before a movie! Showing a 21 minute Olaf short ruins that! Yep! A short about celebrating traditions ruined a real life tradition! Well I just hope that Incredibles 2 will have an actual Pixar short. - MegaSoulhero

Actually, it was released with Roller Coaster Rabbit. You might think it was released with Tin Toy, but no. - Maddox121

4 The Songs

Disney wanted to see how many songs they can cram into a 21 minute short. The short is almost NOTHING but singing! With a few lines of dialogue. People complain that Frozen had too much singing in it, but that was actually a musical movie! Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is too short to be a musical! The songs aren’t even very good! They’re so bland and generic! A lot of people like the song When We’re Together, but I personally think it’s cheesy and tries too hard force in a message. The song that Olaf sings as he’s finding out what people’s traditions are, I’ll admit it was fun seeing Josh Gad performing it live at D23, but the song itself is kind of annoying and feels too long. I don’t even remember the song at the beginning. There’s also a song that Elsa sings and I really thought it was entirely pointless. It’s meant to be emotional but Elsa was pretty much just being over dramatic. I didn’t like any of the songs. - MegaSoulhero

5 It’s 21 Minutes

I saw Coco today (fantastic movie) and had to sit through this. It sucked but it wasn't as horrible as I thought. Most of the songs were eh and Olaf was annoying! - Phillip873

Why didn't Disney realise that Frozen's fame has died out by now, no one loves Frozen anymore other than dumb 2 year olds! - RaccoonCartoon

21 minutes is too long for a short - Eraser

This is a HUGE problem that a lot of people have with this “short”. IT’S TOO LONG! Seriously! This would’ve been acceptable had it stayed as a T.V. special, but this was released in theaters and played before Coco! It’s bad enough that we have to wait through a bunch of trailers before the movie starts! A bunch of terrible trailers! But if you include a 21 minute short, that means you pretty much have to wait almost an hour before the movie starts! This caused so many people to be angry! They even pulled it from theaters in Mexico! Throughout the entire thing, I was waiting for it to be over! It kept on going and going! At least Frozen Fever was about 6 minutes! I don’t know what Disney was thinking. - MegaSoulhero

6 Kristoff is Barely in it Kristoff is Barely in it Kristoff Bjorgman is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated feature Frozen.

Kristoff is the only good thing about this short, but he’s barely even in it! He only appears in I think two scenes and only gets a few lines. They do give him a song, but it’s a very bad song. Seriously, Disney? You have Jonathan Groff, a very talented singer, in one of your movie franchises, and you don’t even give him a good song? Hopefully he will get a better one in Frozen 2. The only moments in the short that I didn’t think were terrible were whenever Kristoff was on screen because he’s pretty funny. I would’ve preferred it if the short was entirely about him. - MegaSoulhero

7 It Was Released With Coco

The juxtaposition does make it seem worse by comparison.

You are making it sound like Coco was bad - 445956

For the record, I don't hate Frozen (I've long since then jumped off of the hate bandwagon). But let's be honest here, it was totally pointless of them to shoehorn this short into a movie about Dia de los Muertos. As T.V. Tropes mentioned, it's especially jarring that they released this short along with Coco in Mexico, where people paid money to see a movie about THEIR OWN CULTURE, not some overexposed Christmas short that should've been kept as a T.V. Christmas special. Mexicans don't just love Speedy Gonzales, they love Coco. Mexicans don't just hate Tingle (well, maybe not as much as Americans do), they hate Olaf's Frozen Adventure. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I hate ANYTHING Frozen but now Coco’s my favorite movie ever! How dare they!

8 Oaken

The sauna is actually a Christmas tradition in some areas of the world, like people do it every Christmas. Still a somewhat dumb scene - Phillip873

Yeah same...i hate when oaken was in a sequeals because after they showed oaken their will be always trouble happening

I hated this entire scene in the movie. I never liked Oaken. Even in the movie he was a terrible character. I hate that Disney has to put him in everything Frozen related! This was probably his worst appearance! It’s not just him that I hated. I pretty much hated this entire scene when he and Olaf were in a sauna. This part should’ve been cut out. It really didn’t need to be there. Also, Olaf melts, turns into water, gets poured into a bucket, gets poured out of the bucket outside, turns into ice, the ice breaks, then he becomes a snowman again. HOW DOES THAT WORK!? And I really hated the joke in which Oaken takes off his towel and throws it on Olaf. We didn’t see anything inappropriate, but I still thought it was disgusting. - MegaSoulhero

9 The Humor

Trust me. Olaf is as funny... as 9/11, Michael Jackson's, Princess Diana's and Robin William's Death: Mixed into ONE! - Maddox121

Saving Private Ryan is a great film, while it's a bit too harsh for the kids, I d rather let them watch that instead of this stupid short.

I don’t know why, but the humor in this was terrible! I didn’t laugh at any of the jokes! Well actually there was one joke I remember laughing at, but a majority of them I found to be very unfunny! I didn’t even hear anyone else in the theater laughing! Not even the kids! I could tell how bored they were watching this! Most of the humor relies on Olaf’s stupidity. Sure it was funny in the movie, but it gets annoying in this 21 minute short. It’s so unfunny that it makes Saving Private Ryan look like a comedy! - MegaSoulhero

10 The Aspect Ratio

It's a 1:78:1 special being shown on a huge screen. - Eraser

This is another way to tell that this was meant to be a T.V. special. They didn’t even bother to fix the aspect ratio! It made it even harder to watch! It has an aspect ratio that’s made for being shown on T.V.. It just looks weird when watching it on a larger screen. They could’ve easily fixed it to make it more watchable. We’re just watching this small square image on a long screen! It doesn’t look good! I really wish they changed it. - MegaSoulhero

The Contenders

11 It’s an Obvious Cash Grab

It's literally just a 21 minute commercial. ''You wanna watch Coco? Too bad! If you like this 21 minute commercial, maybe you'll go out of your way too buy a $100 Elsa doll! '' It's basically what Disney is saying. - RaccoonCartoon

Like the Frozen Sequel?
Seriously, let this series DIE please... - mattstat716

It’s time to let the frozen series die along with toy story and cars - Randomator

It’s clear that this special was only made so they can sell merchandise. Frozen made so much money and sold a lot of merchandise. What did they do next? They made a short to play before Cinderella (2015) two years later and that short sold a lot of merchandise. What did they do next? They made a 21 minute short that played before Coco two years later and it’s selling a lot of merchandise. What are they going to do next? They are going to make a legit Frozen sequel that comes out two years later and will most definitely sell a lot of merchandise! You see what I’m saying? - MegaSoulhero

12 It's a Waste of Time

It sure is! I could be 21 minutes into the movie, but it's being wasted on a cash grab. - RaccoonCartoon
