The Sven and Olaf Show is a 2016 American animated comedy television series based on the 2013 movie, Frozen, with the comic relief sidekicks Sven and Olaf as the main characters. It focuses on the exploits of the 2 comic relief characters from Frozen getting into all sorts of wacky and insane adventures. The general world differs majorly from Frozen, as this show has 1800's style versions of modern day customs and technology, much like what Flinstones does for the Stone Age. Also, some of the personalities of the characters differ slightly.
Sven and Olaf, who were the two supporting comic relief characters of the hit film Frozen, are the main characters of this animated comedy series. It focuses on the duo's exploits and adventures in Arendelle. Unlike the movie, Sven in this show, CAN talk. In one episode, they even give an explanation for how he gained such an ability, as he got the wish to do so granted from a magic fairy some time after the movie. Sven and Olaf are best friends, although their personalities greatly differ. Sven is intelligent and enjoys reading, fine dining, watching theater. He is somewhat uptight and highly believes in being neat. Olaf on the other hand, is the more happy-go-lucky and naive of the 2, and he is quite clumsy too. His attention span is VERY short and easily gets distracted by things such as butterflies, food, and animals. Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff, the main characters from the movie, get a good amount of episodes where they play a major role, but they ultimately take a back seat to Sven and Olaf's comedic antics.
In this show, there are also 1800's style versions of modern day machinery, very similar to the show Flinstones, which uses prehistoric versions of modern tech, such as radio players, TVs, movie theaters, etc. Each session runs 30 minutes, usually with 2 12 minute long episodes each, with a total of 26 episodes per season.

PRODUCTION NOTES: This is the second Christmas Special in the series, the first being Untitled Christmas Special.
The show makes frequent use of various licensed songs in some episodes. Here is a list of the songs used and in what episode.
- In the series, Sven is capable of human speech and is voiced by Jim Cummings. His personality also differs almost entirely from Frozen. While in Frozen, he was sloppy, kind-hearted and goofy, in The Sven and Olaf Show, he is a neat-freak, uptight, finnicky, and gets annoyed easily by Olaf's antics. One thing both versions have in common, however, is that they both care about their friends dearly and want to do anything to help when needed.
- In Chaos on the Set, the cartoon director Bob Vulgar is a parody of current Disney chairman and CEO, Bob Iger.
- Of my 3 and counting shows I've made, Sven and Olaf Show is the only one to have gotten a Christmas Special.
- Some episodes contain bits of various licensed songs, such as Bye Bye Bye, Nothing but a Good Time, and Immortals.
- In the episode, Shlollywood, Hans secretly re-writes the script for the film adaptation of Elsa's adventure to make her look like the villain and make Hans look like the hero. This is a nod to the original script for Frozen, in which ironically, Elsa actually WAS going to be the villain, but this was changed as her song, Let it Go, made her seem too likeable.
- Though Olaf is normally, one of the kindest, warm-hearted and most gentle people in Arendelle, he does have a dark side. This is shown when a criminal steals Olaf's carrot nose as part of some needlessly complicated plot. That is the absolute worst thing you could do to get Olaf mad. If you steal his carrot nose (and not give it back), he becomes a ruthless, pyschopathic maniac who even Marshmallow fears, going on a violent rampage that only pure dumb luck would be able save you from.
- The series is the first Cloverfield Monster series to have a Christmas Special
- It's also is the second Cloverfield Monster TV series to make it to Season 3, the first being Big Hero 6: The Animated Series.
- As of October 3rd, the series gained the most amount of episodes out of any Cloverfield monster series at 65 so far, beating out Big Hero 6, which previously held the title with 60 episodes, making it the longest running Cloverfield Monster show to date.
