Frostbite Falls, Minnesota

Frostbite Falls, Minnesota

Frostbite Falls, Minnesota is a fictional small town seen on the American animated series "Rocky and His Friends" and "The Bullwinkle Show". It is located in the (real world) location of Koochiching County in Minnesota.

Frostbite Falls is the home of Rocket J. Squirrel, better known as "Rocky," and his pal Bullwinkle J. Moose. The two are the town's most famous residents.

Frostbite Falls' population fluctuated over the course of the original series, ranging from 23 to several thousand residents. Frostbite Falls was also noted as having many more television sets than residents, thanks to the stature of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Frostbite Falls has a movie theater, a church, and a pet store (all in the same building). It also features at least two newspapers, the "Frostbite Falls Far-Flung Flyer" and the "Picayune-Intelligence", the latter which ran an ill-fated contest with the grand prize being an old-fashioned car. The town's sole high school is Frostbite Falls High School. There is also a college, Wassamatta U., which Bullwinkle attended.

Natural features and landmarks near Frostbite Falls included Veronica Lake and (presumably) Moosylvania, an island of which Bullwinkle was the "governor."

Travel to and from Frostbite Falls was depicted as a less-than-convenient affair. Only one road led into and out of the town, and train travel to and from the town was not particularly timely.

Frostbite Falls may be a parody of the real-life small town of International Falls, Minnesota (which is located in Koochiching County). International Falls is the coldest city (average temperature) in the contiguous United States.
