WILLY McBEAN & HIS MAGIC MACHINE is one of the RANKIN/BASS lost gems. It was released to the theaters in 1965 in wonderful ANIMAGIC! It was the first RANKIN/BASS full length feature film. It was shot at the same time RANKIN/BASS were in Production with RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER and features the same voice cast including BILLIE MAE RICHARDS and LARRY D. MANN. I still have a few copies left of the re-mastered version on DVD-R.
