The Snow Golem makes his first appearance in the animated short, when Finn and Jake throw snowballs at his eyes to defeat him. He also appears in the episode "Prisoners of Love," as well as in the opening sequence. He lives in the Ice Kingdom. When Finn and Jake knock his head off in "Prisoners of Love," he puts on a new head of snow shaped like a cat and then meows like one.
He is the main character in the episode "Thank You," where he appears to live a quiet life in a snow-covered farm house. He is shown eating acorns and a pear, possibly his main food source. He finds a lost Fire Wolf Pup and takes care of it before returning it to its family.
In the episode "Frost & Fire," he is seen evacuating the Ice Kingdom with the Penguins as Flame Princess is melting it.
In Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd you steal our garbage?!! Snow Golem helps Finn and Jake get the fire sword they need to break through the Ice Kingdom's walls after they help him get a girlfriend made of Cloud Kingdompieces, who is brought to life by the Party God.
