Hocus Pocus is a rabbit featured in the Rankin/Bass Christmas television special Frosty the Snowman. He is the rabbit formerly used in Professor Hinkle's magic act, but their relationship is shown to be a rather adversarial one, as Hocus refuses to come out of Hinkle's magic hat when told to do so. After it is discovered that the hat can bring Frosty to life, Hocus escapes with the hat and brings it back to Frosty. He, along with Karen, then accompanies Frosty on his journey to the North Pole. Along the way, Frosty warns that while he and Hocus can survive in the backcountry, Karen cannot, and they need to get her back to civilization. Hocus acts out in pantomime those who could help, such as pretending to carry a rifle and march, only for Frosty to say "No, not the Marines", then Hocus pretends to be giving a grand speech, only for Frosty to say "Not the President of the United States". Hocus is annoyed with the declined ideas, but Frosty said they were good ones. Finally, he and Frosty come to an agreement by recruiting the help of Santa Claus, though Frosty takes credit for it, to Hocus' annoyance. In the end credits, he is seen at the side of a redeemed Hinkle as he marches alongside Frosty and his friends, which implies he and the magician have reconciled and Hocus serves as the rabbit in Hinkle's magic tricks again.
